Daring Bakers Challenge #2!!



Yes, it's a Yule Log and the cookie sheets in the oven are holding the meringue mushroom pieces. I've got to say, I'm pretty disappointed with the picture quality, but company was over here (to help us eat it) and I didn't have too much time.

For those of you interested, I made 1.5 recipes of this cake so it would feed all of my company. The cake itself was a genoise, I filled it with chocolate mousse and the icing was espresso~ mocha buttercream. I colored the icing brown so it would look like a log, but I didn't want to dilute the coffee flavor with any chocolate. The "snow" on the log was white chocolate shavings.
