BUCHE DE NOEL

I love to make Buche de Noel's.  This one was made from a chocolate roll cake and filled with hazelnut buttercream.  I frosted it first with ganache then made it look like a log with chocolate buttercream that I combed with a combing tool.  The holly leaves and berries are made from gumpaste and the mushrooms are meringue.  The santa and trees are molded chocolates.
Merry Christmas!!

Thanks for the complements. I know it is supposed to be Joyeux but the client wanted Joyous. I also missed spelled buche, will have to go back and fix that boo boo!

Pam - your buche de noel is perfect! I like how long you made it too. Very, very nice.

Thanks so much. It needed to serve 20 people so I made two and put them together and cut off the ends to make the knots. The client was thrilled.
