We dove deep into holiday cakes on Tuesdays with Dorie with the Buche de Noel. This is a multi-layer cake that definitely needs a day to do.link Zosia posted about making this batter.
I was amazed that the batter filled the sheet pan.
After the cake baked, you were to dust a kitchen towel with powdered sugar.
Then you turned out the warm cake on the sugared towel. I had powdered sugar all over my kitchen counter. As my husband said, "you should have seen that coming".
The cake then cools in the towel until room temperature.video making this cake prior to baking which helped calm my nerves when my cake cracked upon unrolling. Dorie said do not worry if it cracks you have filling and icing to cover it up and she was right.
I am glad that I tackled this recipe. Loved the frosting and cake but the filling was a bit heavy. I would make this again if someone asked me, it is definitely a special occasion cake.
