Buche de Noel Yule Log, slightly adapted from Martha Stewart's Birch de Noel

Buche de Noel Yule Log

I try to make this cake. Buche de Noel Yule Log, from Martha Stewart’s 2003 Christmas Book, every Christmas Season. She calls it Birch de Noel, and I always thought it was fitting because up “Nord” here in Minnesota, all the logs are blanketed in snow through the winter season. You betcha! I guess it appeals to the realist in me, though this dessert is pure fantasy!
