How to Dazzle Like a French Pastry Chef

For the holidays, one showstopping dessert rises above the rest: the Yule log, or bche de Nol. Yotam Ottolenghi shares his for the season (along with a slightly simpler cake too).

This dazzling Yule log combines chocolate sponge cake with kumquat marmalade and a date-and-orange cream. Toasted meringue and caramel shards adorn the top.

1. It looks lovely, but my idea of exerting myself to make a fancy dessert

is making a pan of brownies from a Betty Crocker mix.

4. HAHAHA!

MY idea was to order one of these from some purveyor, and try to share it with my daughter. MUCH too messy, so I quit the idea!!!

8. I take points off for the loose and uneven roll of the log..

I'll be judging the next Food Network baking contest.
