Yule Log Cake Recipes (Bûche de Noël)

 

Yule Log Cake, also called Bûche de Noël, holds a special place for me as I grew up in France

I have wonderful memories of enjoying yule log cake with family and friends, and even leaving shoes out the front door for presents. This is a traditional cake in Belgium, France & Switzerland around Christmastime. Our family likes to celebrate and eat this cake during the winter solstice, and add more woodland decorations to our Christmas tree.

Bûche de Noël is a rolled up cake with ganache frosting shaped like a log, often with woodland elements

This post will give you recipes for meringue mushrooms, decoration ideas & many recipes

If you didn’t want to make the fancy rolled up Bûche de Noël you could bake a cake in the Nordic Yule Log cake pan but it really wouldn’t be the same at all! Easier if you just wanted the fun of decorating a yule log. Nordic Yule Log Cake Pan

One fun thing to do with a yule log is to add little trees, mushrooms & woodland inspired ornaments.

These little evergreen trees are a common addition, as are homemade meringue mushrooms.

Making these meringue mushrooms can be a bit technical for the beginner so you can also buy woodland mushrooms in cake decoration sets like this set.

This etsy shop has great yule log decorations as you can see below but they’re currently taking a break, but contact them as they’ll be re-opening!
