Bûche de Noël


Can you say butter?

This variety of cake is called Bûche de Noël, and translates to log cake... Note the plastic saws among the Santa Claus figurines if you zoom in close, both above and below...


Zooming in will also reveal the high cost of French butter: these cakes range from 15 to 29 euros! They're not cheap. But they're ohhhhh soooo good.
