    Hi There,
    I may be wrong but isn't it just a basic sort of Swiss roll cake with chocolate on it?

    I don't know cause i don't eat cakes but i'm sure you just have to make a Swiss roll with any filling you like , roll it up and put chocolate on the top!

    Replace one to one and a half tablespoons of flour with cocao powder to make the swiss roll chocolate flavour.

    For the icing I make butter cream and then add melted chocolate this makes the covering really nice and chocolately and its not so soft,its delish.

    It's a giant swiss roll covered in chocolate ;D ;D You decorate it with stick on robins and Merry Christmas signs and sprinkle icing sugar on to make it look like it's snowed (or I did as a kid)

    Picture (and recipe)

    The origins of the yule

    The edited version (cause I know you're busy today) basically says pagans light a log and do a dance makes the sun come up in summer.

    Probably not a good idea to get the kids decorating one today though ((((160)))) :-* thinking of you. I had the same thing last Christmas.

    I haven't made one of these for years!! I think I'll give it a go as well!! But I will cheat and buy my swiss rolls! If I remember rightly you use two. One whole and the other cut at an angle which you stick on with the choccy butter icing, decorate with robins etc and sprinkle with icing sugar for the snow.

    Re: Yule log recipe?
    when you do the choc to cover it, add butter when you melt it, gives it bit more flexability.

    mine i dropped on kitchen floor, so doesn't look quite so good, so will try again.
