Jelly-Roll Heaven

Awww Jelly-Rolls… don’t you just love them?  They are such a versatile dessert in my opinion.  The ingredients can be so simple or slightly complicated, but whatever you choose, however you decorate them, they can be quite awesome. I have made many a jelly-rolls and they are one of my favorites because you can just about make any flavor and fill them with whatever you want. Possibilities are endless and they are the perfect treat for your holiday (or any day) dessert table. Just saying….

My Black Forest Jelly Roulé complete with Kirsch soaked sour cherries and dark chocolate fans (or my attempt at making fans, hahaha) …Magnifique!

Decadent Yuletide Cakes

Yuletide logs or here in Québec, “Bûche de Noël” are an absolute tradition in my family.  I have made them every year now for quite some time.  I am most fond of the Vanilla cake with Mocha filling and a deep Chocolate frosting.  I think it’s really my favorite, especially if you like coffee.  I now bake a delicious Vanilla cake with a “Tutti-Frutti” filling (cherries and peaches, yummm!) with a Vanilla-Almond frosting and delectable White-Coconut Chocolate bark, oh my I can’t wait to eat it!!  

Village Sweets has our Specialty Yuletide Logs (Bûche de Noël) on our Menu for ordering in case anyone is interested…
