History behind euforia Roll Layer Cake

Bûche de Noël-As the name indicates, the cake is generally prepared, presented, and garnished so as to look like a log ready for the fire used in the ancient fire-festival of the winter solstice. Buche de Noel is well garnished and so well presented like a log that is ready for the fire.

This traditional dessert is generally made from Genoise or other sponge cake, filled with butter cream. Sometimes, even chocolate cakes are used for this purpose. Traditionally, Buche de Noel is made of Genoise cake that is baked in jellyroll pan. Buttercream is spread on top of a rectangular piece of Genoise cake. It is rolled in a cylindrical fashion so that the cake resembles a log.

The outer part is covered with chocolate buttercream, in such a way that the surfaces look like that of yule bark. This yule log cake is decorated with powdered sugar (that resembles snow), spruce sprigs, meringue mushrooms, fresh berries, etc.  euforia offers you a ‘cake roll’ variety, as well. Enjoy this beautifully made cake with your favorite coffee, tea or wine.
