Every Christmas its been a tradition at home to make Bûche de noël aka Yule log cake for the celebration. This year we celebrated christmas with my today's post 'Vanilla yule log cake with chocolate whipped cream'. I was eagerly waiting to post this recipe in my space the day i prepared this cake but unfortunately some many things happened during the last week of december and got stumbled with my personnal stuffs. Since i dont want to wait until next december to post this cake, i couldnt resist to write this post for this week's blogging marathon. Personally i felt that eventhough its bit late to post a Christmas cake, am sure this post will be definitely helpful for many of my readers later, in case if they search anything special for the upcoming Christmas.

Bûche de noël is a famous Christmas French cake,they have an important place at everyone's christmas party table.
