This yuletide season (December 2007) was one of my busiest season ever. My sister and I decided to sell baked goods for the season, all I can say that it's A LOT of hard work! I'll blog about this experience in my future blogs.
I know my posting is a weee bit late, however I still want to share my experience in the December 2007 Daring Baker Challenge, The Buche de Noel, hosted by the founders of the group.
The first time I found out that we'll be doing a Buche de Noel, I'm both thrilled and scared! Thrilled because I've been meaning to try it years before, now I have the chance to. Scared because I have never in my entire life made a rolled cake before, never made mushroom meringues before too! I felt like I'm way in over my head. But the Daring Bakers lay down the rules and dutiful member that I am, I suck it up and "carpe diem" (seize the day)!
Early December 24, I started following the instructions of the recipe. And I'm a bit surprise to say, it was quite easy. I was just impatient in making the meringue mushrooms and there where too much of them! Up till today I still have few mushrooms laying around! and the recipe for buttercream included was a bit too much I have tons of left overs. Any suggestions as to what to do with them? I'm also wondering how come my buttercrean didn't turn darker? I looks a bit pale for my taste.
