This month's challenge is brought to us by the adventurous Hilda from Saffron and Blueberry and Marion from Il en Faut Peu Pour Etre Heureux.
They have chosen a French Yule Log by Flore from Florilege Gourmand
I have to be honest and say that when I first saw this month challenge I was scared - scared because it was a huge recipe with 6 elements (each with it's own choices) and scared because this gauntlet was laid down in the busiest month ever!!!! I really wasn't sure I'd have the time to complete it but was able to squeeze it in with a bit of a rush - mind you another problem was who I was going to feed it to and as usual the youth group at church ended up tucking into it.
French Yule Log
1) Dacquoise Biscuit - with orange flavouring
2) Mousse - Vanilla flavoured
3) Ganache Insert - Milk Chocolate
4) Praline (Crisp) Insert - I made it with the rice krispies
5) Creme Brulee Insert - Milk Chocolate Creme Brulee
6) Icing - Dark Chocolate
Unfortunately I've misplaced my camera which has all my photos of my French Yule Log - once I find it I'll add them. But until then you can see the rest of the Daring Bakers' results here. Or enjoy a pic of Marion's test log -
