Buche de Noel is a traditional French Christmas dessert. It is a cake made in the shape of a log and often decorated with meringue mushrooms. It makes a gorgeous center piece for a dessert table. In this class we will make, fill and glaze the cake, and then make meringue mushroom for decoration. Everyone will take their cakes home. The cake (without the mushrooms on top) freezes well, and can be thawed the night before it is served. The mushrooms will keep in an airtight container.
