~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last year I made a very strange looking Christmas log, I kind of went decoration random on it.

This year, I wanted to make a roll cake that was going to look very simple but taste great Also, I wanted to make one with no frosting. I kept it very minimalistic, the only decorations are the mushroom meringues and the powdered sugar.

The mascarpone frosting in this is divine! I was not sure what to expect since I had never tried mascarpone before. In my opinion the taste is a mix between whipped cream, cream cheese and butter. If you can't find mascarpone, you can always substitute with cream cheese, the consistency is very similar.

I used this stock for the bokeh, my camera is not capable of creating bokeh on it's own :(

That looks so delicious and pretty! I am a complete failure at Yule logs. They always tasted good, but visually looked like a "Dog Log." :facepalm:

hahhaa dog log!
As long as they taste good, that's what's important. Pretty food that tastes bad is way worste than ugly looking food that tastes great :)

yes! I've seen it used in tiramisu before. I was not disappointed in the taste, it's great! However, it's quite expensive :(
