Buche de Noel

Last year my mom outdid herself by making a homemade chocolate Buche de Noel cake. It was a combination of several recipes and even had a cut branch section in the middle! Impressive and delicious.

Well this year she decided to try something new and pulled out a saved Martha Stewart recipe (can you tell Martha love runs in the family?). From the December 2003 issue of Living, the recipe is called Walnut Orange Buche de Noel.

Last year's cake featured a faux bois, this year's cake was decorated with chocolate bark.

This year's recipe was my favorite - it tasted amazing! Can you believe that the entire cake only contains 2 tablespoons of flour? Here is a picture of my piece on my parent's wedding china.

What will she think of next year? Can't wait to find out!
