I was originally going to make Nigella’s Yule Log but after seeing The Great British Bake Off Christmas special, I liked the look of Mary Berry’s much more

I used a Mary Berry recipe which you can find here. We had a bake sale at work in conjunction with Save the Children's Christmas jumper day and I wanted to make something festive, so I decided on this yule log

Mary Berry's Yule log. The  book contained two very different Yule logs/Buche Noel which   were different again from the one Mary made on the Christmas edition of Great British Bake Off

Recipe: Chocolate Yule Log with Raspberries

I messed with a Mary Berry recipe…. I decided to try my hand at a Yule log… I’ve never made one before and know if I made one for home I would sit and eat the lot myself which, is never a good idea for a dieter

Zingy Lemon Swiss Roll

Ingredients - adapted from 'Sweet Treats & Puds' by Mary Berry. Finally for pink there was a raspberry Neapolitan cake made by Becki which was huge, sadly I didn't get to try a piece as I was too full by the time I'd tried all of the others

I did quite a bit of Christmas baking, including chocolate chip biscotti, Hershey's kisses thumbprint cookies,  Mary Berry's chocolate yule log, reindeer cake pops, Bailey's chocolate luxe cheesecake, and these blue cheese, parmesan and green olive bread sticks, which were dunked in a baked camembert as our starter on Christmas day

Merry Christmas Everyone!

My third and final share for the day is my first attempt at a Yule Log, or Buche de Noel to give it it's Sunday name
