  29. How nostalgic, I made one of these in high school French class for our December French club one year. I recall it being quite the challenge for a 16 year old that grew up in a household where nearly all of the ingredients had to be purchased to make this. The pantry was not equipped. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful holiday season.

  31. What a delightful approach to a Bûche de Noël or Yule Log cake!

    I love the idea of the Hazelnut and cacao flavors combining--truly yummy sounding. What a brilliant idea, Gloria!

    As it happens, we also make a Bûche de Noël cake in my family as it is also my birthday cake. I happen to celebrate my birthday between Thanksgiving and Christmas. You can see the cake we make here:
