To get us all into that festive Christmas spirit I give you Dan F with his Christmas baking creation..

Proud baker

Yule log? Yum! It was a beaut! You can see Dan’s previous bake here.

Yule log

Dan followed this recipe but says

“I chucked some orange liquor in the topping – as well as the brandy! It is Christmas!”

I like your style Dan!

“This was surprisingly easy! I was quite anxious about doing the roll, but it all went very smoothly, with no grilling incidents this time”

Yule log

“I don’t normally go for chocolate sponge cake, so was pleased that this one was a bit sweeter”

Yule log

“I dusted the icing sugar too early, so had to re-dust before leaving the house as it had soaked up the sugar. This may well be because I followed this schedule: bake cake- then go out for dinner and drinks- then return home and remember you have to decorate a yule log!”

There’s nothing wrong with a bit of double icing sugar in my book! It was a gorgeous cake and a totally fabulous way to end the first term of Studio Cake Saturdays!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Ha!

Lots of festive love x
