Real delicious dessert is hard to find here in California ... especially when you have a French husband who loves chocolate cake. Finally this year, we were able to find a satisfactory Buche de Noel for Christmas dessert. It didn't really look too fancy, like the one we had last year with all those plastic decorations. But it tasted good. The icing was not overtly sweet, which is very often the case here, though it was a bit too thick to my taste. Since I was not sure how the Buche de Noel would turn out to be, I picked some mini tarts as back up. Yummy!
