Merry Christmas

Buche de Noel aka Yule log is a festive Christmas display piece for buffets or Family gatherings. My version is a chocolate genoese with rum syrup, dark chocolate ganache, chocolate whipped cream & then rolled jelly roll style to which more rum syrup is liberally brushed on before finish piping with chocolate buttercream. I then pipe on a message ( your choice here- Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings, etc..) and finish the decorations with holly leaves, berries & meringue mushrooms. It is as delicious to eat as it is to gaze upon, making the mood merry & bright.

One of my favorite desserts to make for Christmas parties & buffets along with Christmas Cobbler, Creme Brulee’s or a White Chocolate Raspberry Almond Mousse Torte, to me it signifies the festivities have begun. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year ( as the song suggests) is upon us again & Christmas is indeed in the air.

So worry about your bikini body in say March, right now is time for desserts to take center stage and fill your mind, heart & belly with joy & cheer. Indulge in Christmas Cookies, eat the Buche de Noel, read a good book by the fire, take extra long walks in the snow & chill air, call old friends, play those wonderful Trans Siberian Orchestra songs ( better yet see them Live!!), Martina McBride, Andy Williams, or your favorite artists Christmas versions loudly. Get caught up in the Christmas Cheer, express Love, open doors for people, let them in traffic, buy the next person in line’s order, take in the beauty of the season to your heart of hearts & let it change you for the good.

Desserts are one of many ways to celebrate the season, but there are plenty of others too. Pay attention to the sights and sounds of this magical time of year and don’t let them slip away unnoticed.
