Making Yule Logs
What’s so special about our yule logs?
Our traditional yule logs are made with our homemade sponge cake formula that has been in our family for generations. After it’s baked, we generously spread red and green buttercream icing on the layer before carefully rolling the cake into a log.
After it sets, our bakers turn the log over to our decorators.
Decorating the Yule Logs
Our decorators hand cut each log before covering them with a rich, creamy chocolate icing. When the main log is iced, a small, side log is added and iced in the same chocolate icing. Each log end is then covered in our homemade chocolate buttercream icing. Gum paste poinsettias and powdered “snow” are added for decoration.
Storing the Yule Log
We recommend storing your yule log in a refrigerator until you’re ready to serve. You can leave it in the box you bring it home in or if you have another storage container, that can work as well. When choosing the best time to pull out your cake for your party, keep the weather in mind. Weather plays a big role in many baked goods and since we do live in Florida, humidity often creates issues for chocolate desserts. The yule logs can sit out on a table in an air-conditioned room for a bit, but we leave that to your discretion.
Serving your Yule Log
These logs are just like most jelly-roll esq desserts. You can slice them as thin or as thick as you desire. While the flowers are made of gum paste, they are not edible. Everything else on the log can be enjoyed.
Any leftovers you may have can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days.
We wish you the happiest of holiday seasons and hope to continue to serve you and your family for years to come.
Merry Christmas from Cinottis!
