Merry Christmas!

Im tired from the past 24hours of baking. On top of the Christmas cookies I saved for the last minute, I alsoo participated in this month's Daring Baker's challenge. The challenge was a Yule log, and it completely slipped my mind. I have been so busy with work and holiday shopping that I wasn't focused on the challenge. To be honest, yesterday I was contemplating skipping the challenge this month. But it's only my second month as a DB and I would have felt bad. And so here it is. Appearance wise I was content, but the genoise cake was not my finest. I think I left it in the oven too long. Instead of doing a coffee buttercream, I did chocolate, it was delicious. I used the leftovers to frost some cupcakes for tomorrow. Sorry this post is so short, I promise to come back with links and more info...but I have to get to sleep so Santa doesn't skip my house!!! Happy Holidays!!

Oh Kourtney, I'm so glad you didn't skip this one. Your log is precious! I hope Santa did well by you, that you're enjoying this special day, and that all the best lies ahead for you in 2008.
