For almost a year, Lucy has been asking to have a Buche de Noel for her birthday cake. I confess to owning the complete set of DVDs featuring Julia Child's show "The French Chef" and we watch them regularly. Lucy loves the Buche de Noel show (and who wouldn't??) and so it was that, last Friday evening, I was rolling up a sponge cake and hoping for the best. The results were....rather small actually. Instead of mushrooms and fake snow, I used flowers to dress up our buche. Alors, c'est une buche de printemps.
