At the center of every French holiday dinner table, you’ll find a beautifully ornate buche de noel – or Yule/Christmas log – that looks like it took days to make. French food enthusiast and home baker Evelyn Schichner would like to show you just how easy this dessert can be! Start by preparing a classic sponge cake and learn hands-on how to fill, roll, and ice following traditional methods. Finish by spending lots of time making the important decorations: from marzipan sugared cranberries, to meringue mushrooms. Snap photos when finished before digging in, and repeat at home for family and friends!
