So, if you’re in Edmonton and want to make a Yule Log Cake, we’ve got you covered!


  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 10×15 inch jelly roll pan and line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the cocoa powder, flour, salt, and vanilla extract, and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Remove the cake from the oven and immediately roll it up with the parchment paper. Let it cool for 30 minutes.
  6. In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  7. Unroll the cake and spread the whipped cream over the surface. Roll the cake back up, removing the parchment paper as you go.
  8. In another large bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Add the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, whole milk, and vanilla extract, and mix until smooth.
  9. Use a knife or spatula to spread the chocolate frosting over the surface of the cake, creating a bark-like texture.
  10. Decorate the cake with meringue mushrooms, holly leaves, or any other festive decorations you like.
  11. Refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour before serving.
