It’s time for the Bûche de Noël 2021

Reading Time: 9 minutes

You’ve been asking where you can purchase a Bûche de Noël 2021. This article gives you the answer!


The Bûche de Noël is a traditional French Christmas cake served at the end of the Christmas meal that resembles a log. 


It is traditionally a sponge cake that is rolled and filled and iced with chocolate buttercream. However, patissiers now create Bûche de Noël  in many different flavour combinations.


The Bûche is then decorated with powdered sugar, to represent snow, and little berries, mushrooms (to represent things found in the forest) usually made of meringue or marzipan.



Bûche means log in French (and Noël is Christmas) and the cake symbolises the log that in previous times were burned in the fireplace during the Christmas period (remember it’s cold in Europe this time of year). 

There are various theories about why the logs were burned varying from that they were to ward off bad luck and darkness or to ensure a good harvest. Beliefs included that ash from the log protected against lightning strikes, and coals from the burned log were used throughout the year in various medicinal potions.


As houses moved away from hearths towards more modern ovens for cooking, the log moved from something that was burned to something that was confectioned and savoured instead. A far more accessible and yummier Christmas tradition!
