Spreading the buttercream on the “génoise” (a type of sponge cake) :
Nans rolling the cake into a “bûche” (= log) shape :
Piping more buttercream to make the bûche look like a real log…and make it tastier too!
Janelle in charge of the ivy-style decoration :
Covering the end sides with cream so that the cake doesn’t dry out :
Fine decoration details…fingerprint signature cakes!
“Plating up”, a delicate mission :
These colourful plastic accessories come from France! French children (and adults!) love them 🙂 :
The bûches ready to be sold…and eaten!
Thanks to Nans for welcoming me in his kitchen 🙂
