Christmas Stalking - day 12

Bouche de Noel is traditionally a rolled cake, iced to look like a log. In our house, however, "the Bouche"  is a retro chocolate and whipped cream refrigerator cake that looks a whole lot like this one.

The mascot has already put in his request demand to have one for dessert on the 25th (and, to be completely honest, breakfast on the 26th). If you want to make your own, you can find the directions here.

To make it even prettier, we always add a dusting of cocoa or a pile of chocolate curls to the top, but feel free to decorate it (or not) any which way you choose. Just be sure to tell people that you slaved over it, though; it looks like way more work than it actually is.
