French Yule Log

This month's challenge is brought to us by the adventurous Hilda from Saffron and Blueberry and Marion from Il en Faut Peu Pour Etre Heureux.
They have chosen a French Yule Log by Flore from Florilege Gourmand

All I can say about this months challange is that it took all day, but it DID taste delicious. 


My favorite part was the mousse, the ganache and the praline feuliette. 


My chocolate frosting gelatized before I got a chance to spread it all around the cake, so I ended up whipping my leftover cream and plopping it all around the cake to look like snow, then sprinkled powder sugar to add to the affect. It looks frost bitten in this picture, it was still very frozen when I snapped the shots.
