To celebrate the shortest day of the year people burn Yule logs - well in a city with a toddler this didn't seem the best idea so I made a Chocolate Yule log instead (and then later I will burn it off as I exercise :) ) and P helped by licking the bowl and tasting it!
Next make the filling - I made this up as our scales are out batteries! I used a carton a double cream, icing sugar to taste and some double cream. Then whisk until stiff. Cover the cake with the cream and roll.
Then cover the whole cake with chocolate butter icing. I think one should probably dust with icing sugar to make it look festive - but sadly I have run out so it will have to wait!
