Angry Birds Xmas Log Cake (Bûche de Noël)



"Ho! Ho! Ho!! Merry Christmas", Angry Green Pig Santa Claus wishes all the Angry Birds & including yourself! If you know me well, I will definitely design Angry Birds Cake for each of the unique season. For this Xmas, I've spent 2 days to design, bake, made Angry Birds icing figures, assemble & decorate this Angry Birds Xmas Log Cake. It is called Bûche de Noël in French, one of many traditional cakes baked at Christmas which origins from France. The name of this recipe literally translates as "Christmas log," referring to the traditional Yule log burned centuries past. The ingedients suggest the cake is most likely a 19th century creation. That's when thinly rolled sponge cakes filled with cream and covered with chocolate icing. 

This Angry Birds Xmas Log Cake is baked for an exclusive order of Xmas Barbecue party at Brisbane (Australia) yesterday. There are 2 kids and more adults like Angry Birds crazily! The most classic moment was the Baby Lucas's expression when seeing the Angry Birds cake for the first time. It was exactly the same expressions with the Miri's orphans and the kids in the long house that I visited last time. Too bad, it only happened for a short while, not enough time to capture the video!


Due to limited time for baking this order, I only managed to take few of the photos during the baking progress. Recently, I've received quite a fair bit of requests/emails from Hankerie's fans on video tutorial. Well, this is the best that I can do at this moment. Hope somebody can sponsor me for a good video recorder first :P

Tutorial: Assemble Angry Birds Xmas Log Cake
Method:


Step 1: Baked a chocolate swiss roll. If you're lazy, you may buy the ready made or frozen one. (chocolate flavour).

Step 2: Cut the swiss roll diagonally represents branches (1 fairly small & 1 about 20% of the cakes).

Step 3: Assemble them to represent the log wood.

Step 4: Put on the chocolate icing/ganache on top of the swiss roll. I've used the combination of dark chocolate, white chocolate & milk chocolate ganache. Try to use the good brand of chocolate, you will taste the different.

Step 5: Use knife to draw the line that resembles the log as picture below.


Step 6: Make the Xmas tree from fondant icing and put on top of log cake.

Step 7: Sprinkle some icing sugar to represent snow (let it snow, let it snow, let it snow). Put some white chocolate snowflakes onto baking paper. See my previous tutorial on how to make snowflakes from scratch -. Hankerie's 1st time judges for "White Xmas Challenge" in verygoodrecipes.com



Step 8: Make all the Angry Birds, Angry Pigs with Santa Claus & Reindeer dress up. All set!



Everybody enjoys the party, cakes & everything. There goes my Angry Birds Xmas Log Cake, finished in few minutes but I've used 2 days to prepared!! This is just "unfair". Anyway, another of my Angry Birds' master piece.



I am submitting for my own event. Hope to see your participation soon in Aspiring Bakes #14 Creative Xmas bakes :)
