White Chocolate Buche de Noel

White Chocolate Buche de Noel

Buche de Noel is the French name for a Christmas cake shaped like a log. This is a heavenly cake rolled with either chocolate or whipped cream. It can be a chocolate cake or a white cake. Traditionally, Buche de Noel is decorated with icing sugar to resemble snow on a Yule log. It was originally a Nordic tradition. Yule is the name of the old Winter Solstice festivals in parts of northern Europe... In some eastern European countries, the log was cut down on Christmas Eve morning and lit that evening.
