Log cake from the Fairy party tutorial


The Fairy Log cake recipe...In France, we make a log cake every Christmas for the Christmas eve diner...It is a classic and there is many recipes for it. Here is one of mine...

Log ice cream cake

1/4 tsp salt,
3 eggs,
1/2 cup Aguave nectar or 1 c sugar,
2/3 cup fruit sauce (2 small already prepared sauce cups),
3/4 cup flour,
1tsp baking soda,
Ice cream for filling (chocolate here),




I used Country berries..


My own eggs...


Beat all ingredients together, pour in a pan with edges...line with parchment paper...


Cook, oven 375 degrees until a little golden...


Cover with a clean cloth...


Roll...and let cool...


Unwrap roll..
Get ice cream (chocolate here) out of the freezer , let it melt enough to be workable...Spread some on roll. do not spread when roll is hot!


Roll and place it back in Freezer...


When frozen enough, cut the ends at an angle...


Place one end on the top of roll...


Spread chocolate icing....line it with fork...


Put it back in freezer...


Pink Mushrooms meringue

4 egg white,
Pinch of salt,
1/2 cup Aguave nectar or 1 cup sugar,
1 tsp strawberry extract,
red food colorant
White icing to link pieces.


Beat egg white until forming hard picks..


Fold in sugar, strawberry extract and red colorant till pink...
Pipe in...with round end, make flat hats and little mounts for body..
Cook 225 degrees, on parchment paper until hard to the touch but not too brown....


Let it cool,
 Attach with icing...Keep in air tight container but not fridge or freezer...


Got flowers and butterflies from dollar store...washed them...cut the flowers out...


Before serving assemble mushrooms and flowers....triangle pattern in grouping of 3 flowers, 1 mushroom and 1 butterflies...
Pink and green sprinkles ...
Make sure it is not too frozen when serving LOL.




THIS IS SO GOOD!!!
ENJOY!
HAPPY WEEK-END

The French said...

Love log cakes! My mom used to make us one for Christmas too! Although, despite the nickname, I'm not French. It's something like, "Bouche de Noel," right? So good. This looks amazing! Nicely done.

Veronica Lee said...

Yummy!!! This looks sooooo good. I'm definitely going to make it.

Have a nice day!!

GardenofDaisies said...

Your fairy log cake is sooo cute! What a great idea to adapt the decoration so that you could use it at another time of year instead of just Christmas.

GapGirl said...

Simply amazing!!!! Thans for the tutorial. I want to try it now =)

Julie Harward said...

This is awesome and you are such a great mom to do this for your child! :D

Le Chateau des fleurs said...

The French, Yes! Buche de Noel! It is a tradition at Christmas.
So glad you all like it. It's not too hard to make...Just take your time and freeze it...

Hi Frenchy,

This cake is so cool...I used to be a very good baker but high cholesterol and a bad stomach has stopped most of that fun. I do enjoy seeing what everyone else is enjoying in the kitchen though! :0)

Thanks for sharing your recipe..I can only imagine all the other children that will be delighted by their mommies version of this recipe.

Drop by when you have a moment..it's a big celebration today for PiNk Saturday..

Have a great weekend,
Stephanie ♥

Hey Girl~ ~ Very very nice job you did on the cake. I have always been facinated with them but have never took the plunge and baked one. I love the idea that you tied it into the fairy's. What little girl wouldn't want one. .I know I do!

Zemphira ~ Scatter Art. said...

Looks good! So cute and delicious!

Silver said...

I wish I had seen your recipe and instructions when I was making my first Yule Log this past Christmas! It came out all right, but an ice cream cake version sounds easier, yummier AND more appropriate for a Florida Christmas. ;) I did a version with orange liqueur and super-rich chocolate buttercream icing.

Love the fairy party idea, too. Now I want to have a fairy party, but then, I've had fairies on the brain lately...

Jenny Bunny said...

omg. AMAZING!

I think I may need to make one of these! You did a great job!
