Buche de Noel

The buche with marzipan leaves and berries

Tonight is our Mom's Holiday party. As I am the dessert lady, unless it is at my house, I made a special Buche de Noel aka Yule log. I am getting better at it: this time the sponge cake didn't crack as I was trying to roll it. I made some Russian tea cakes to look like snowballs surronding the log.

Since I didn't have a lot of time today, I tried to run outside rather than go to the Y which takes about a half hour of commuting time. I found one clear stretch of pavement, what a luxury. This stuff won't melt any time soon.
