As Long As Thereโ€™s Christmas

Happy Christmas Eve! ๐ŸŽ„โ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŒŸ Almost a week into tier 4, but funnily enough I am still enjoying my time away from work and being left to my own devices. ๐Ÿ˜Œ Obviously this Christmas is a lot quieter than previous years, but I think itโ€™s good to find some peace in these uncertain times.

Continuing my spree of festive baking, I decided to make a traditional Yule Log today. The filling is a whipped cream with raspberries, wrapped in a chocolate sponge coated in dark chocolate ganache and decorated with tempered chocolates. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Itโ€™s very straightforward, and I had such a fun time making it because I just love doing tempered chocolate work. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ And to finish, all it needs a little dust of icing sugar to bring it to life! โ„๏ธโ„๏ธ

  1. I am in Tier 4 too! Shed some tears on Saturday when I realized I won’t see any family.
    But I am going to host a WordPress party tomorrow – CARAMEL’S COCKTAIL CLUB! It will be interesting to see who else is on their own this year for the first time perhaps.
    Your chocolate log looks amazing!
