Nothing says Christmas like a novelty chocolate log.

If you're going to go all out on a dessert, Christmas is probably the time to do it. When else is it socially acceptable to rock up to a party with what looks like a fallen branch on a plate? In case you're not familiar with this creation, its proper name is bûche de Noël. Originating in France, the show-stopping dessert consists of a Swiss roll and is iced with buttercream to look like a real-deal log. Sweet, novel, fun – what's not to like? To give it a go, head to this recipe from Lisbeths (you'll need to switch on your in-browser translator).
