Christmas Challenge -- a YULE log??!!!!

It was the night before Christmas (actually it was around the 14th of December) and the Aluxes (some people call them elves) were busy trying to bake a Yule Log that Miss Ifi could present for the Daring Bakers' December challenge....



The finally assembled ALL of the ingredients.... they kept dusting each other with the icing sugar, followed by the cocoa powder.. they were also extremely amused by the espresso powder, they kept dissolving the granules in the water just to make sure that all the granules dissolved at the same speed... and YES they drank some of the Rum as well



They baked the Meringue Mushrooms and right after they played with them in what they called "the mushroom forest"... after a while they baked the Genoise and they had so much fun rolling it up, they wanted to bake 4 more of those, but they knew they still had to make the Butter cream and so they did... but something happened and butter cream curdled. The Aluxes were so sad they did not know what to do but to douse the Genoise in liquor fill it with the curdled butter cream and some pecans, yet they knew they could not use the curdled butter cream to decorate the Yule Log.

The following day, they asked for help and the butter cream turned out PERFECT!! they were soooo happy they danced and wiggled their bums... Miss Ifi took photographs of the Yule Log and it looked something like this



Merry Christmas to everyone!!!! and a Happy New Year!!

I love the ingredient sketches!Wish I'd thought of that!

I was also lucky with the buttercream, and very worried after the curdling horror stories!
