Each year I try to come up with a creative dessert and more often than not, I’ll end up baking a cake. This year I baked a log cake (who says you can have a log cake only for Christmas) Easter is a wonderful holiday, to me it represents everything new, fresh and bright. Spring has arrived, the flowers are starting to bloom, the birds are singing and the energy in the air seems to be one of happiness and hope. I decided to put in as many soft pastel colors to show the memories I had growing up around Easter time. As a child my Easter mornings were spent at church and then followed with a big celebration meal and of course our chocolate Easter eggs. This EasterLogCake will shine brightly on any dessert table. Using edible garnishes and decadent chocolate ganache, the cake is made to resemble a tiny tree log. For something so impressive, this recipe actually starts off pretty simple. A basic cake is baked in a jelly roll pan before being rolled up with chocolate ganache and white chocolate pudding. Cut into this cake to reveal a festive swirl, but the real fun part comes with decoration! These cute little figurines are made of Marzipan (all edible) Add a little dash of magic to your baking and make a EasterLogCake its a new take on the traditional yule log and a great alternative to a traditional round cake! HAPPY EASTER!!
