Oh, look at sweet sweet Julia throwing icing sugar on her classic yule log cake, which has already been covered in meringue-mushrooms and lain in a manger of festive laurels. Over the past 7 years, I’ve made all sorts of Bûches de Noēl: Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Malt, Chocolate Hazelnut, Cannoli, my odds-on favourite Lemon with Mascarpone, Gingerbread, and traditional Chocolate with Coffee Cream.
This year, we’re throwing out the cake pan and making a yule log of a different sort: an assemblage of chocolate dipped oatmeal cookie ice-cream sandwiches. That’s right. We’re creating the gourmet version of my favourite California ice-cream novelty: the It’s-It ice-cream sandwich. And then we’re sandwiching the sandwiches all together with an easy whipped cream icing for a yule log like never before!
