Chocolate Decadence Yule Log
December 12, 2010

This was a multi-step recipe and the mistake I made was to roll the cake too late making it crack. The filling and frosting was too sweet and a bit runny with the chocolate coagulating into pieces. For an easy to make and use frosting recipe, the Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting on this site is perfect with cocoa added to your taste one tablespoon at a time. It fixed all of the cracks and the cake looked and tasted great. Also, use a fork to make the log marks on the cake. With these changes, it is just like the French restaurant's yule log where I used to work. You don't need to use the liqueur; it's fine without it. Nobody knew the difference at the restaurant.
