Buche de Noel

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
Although it tastes great ( very rich), it was very labor intensive, especially if you only have a hand mixer. I had to do the egg white mixer twice because I couldn't get the consistency right and ended up adding 3/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar. The cake was veryyy thin, but at least the whole cake is covered in frosting so it doesn't matter if there are cracks. I also needed to make 2 of the frostings because one wasn't enough to fill the cake and ice the top. Although tasty, not sure if I would use it again.

White Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
These pretzels were really easy and fun to make. I used ghiradelli semi sweet chocolate chips to melt, which they melted easy but the chocolate was almost too overpowering and rich. Next time I would just use a different chocolate. I also found that dipping the pretzels in the sprinkles worked fine for me, it was hard to try to sprinkle the sprinkles directly onto the pretzel anyway.
