La Bûche de Noël (Yule log)
The “Bûche de Noël” is a cake that is sold end of December. It is part of the Christmas tradition to eat that cake mainly during the “Réveillon” which is the important dinner that the French people do the night of Christmas Eve.
In the picture above, it is a home-made cake with a chocolate cream. In bakeries, you will find the cakes with small Christmas decorations on them. The color of the “Bûche” will vary with the cream that is used.
It is also possible to replace the cake by an ice cream cake, which also has the same shape than a Yule log.
