You’ve probably heard of it before. The Bûche de Noël. A traditional French Christmas dessert shaped like a log.
I guess that’s a strange cake. It’s like “MERRY CHRISTMAS, HERE’S YOUR LOG SHAPED CAKE!”
Slow your roll, sparky. The Bûche de Noël has a rich history full of symbolism and one pretty fantastic story (hint: Napoleon may or may not be involved). It’s not just another cake. It’s the cake. As in, the iconic French Christmas cake.
