Bûche de Noël 2011

xmas_buche

This's the Bûche de Noël I made this year for a Christmas party at my godbrother's place.
I simply turned Hidemi Sugino's Ambroisie into a Bûche. It's much more polished compared to the yule log that I made last year.

My godbrother have a giant thread ball at his place and I was really inspired when I first saw it. Hence, I came up with the idea of making a chocolate thread ball as part the cake decoration.

The cake components ( from top to bottom ):
Chocolate glaze
66% dark chocolate mousse
Pistachio mousse
Pistachio sponge
Raspberry jam
Chocolate sponge

You can find the recipe here

I wish you all a Merry Christmas! Je vous souhaite à tous un Joyeux Noël!
