not suitable for burning!

A Bûche de Noël (or Yule log) is a dessert cake popular during the winter and specially at Christmastime.

Made from a sponge cake that is baked in a shallow pan, it is then frosted, rolled to form a log shape and then frosted again on the outside.

If you're dreaming of a White Christmas, may we suggest a Dufflet Bûche de Noël in Lemon Cherry Pistachio?

Light pistachio sponge cake is rolled with lemon buttercream and sour cherries, then wrapped in a sheet of pure white chocolate and garnished with a cherry jelly and gold dust.

Sizes: 10", 7.5" (contains nuts)

Order your holiday desserts now as quantities are limited; please contact directly the Dufflet cafe location most convenient to you!
