"I did not make the mushroom meringues (perhaps later..), but it tasted good and turned out very interesting looking. I love the way it looked and I think doing a full log (I did two mini logs this time) would make it that much more cool. I will attempt this again another time!"

"The Yule log tastes great. It took us mere minutes to eat the whole thing. I followed the recipe exactly except I used fresh raspberries and drew upon my previous Yule log baking experience and tied the cake with ribbon rolled up in a towel so it would chill in a nice shape. I skipped the mushrooms since I typically have bad luck baking them in rainy weather (it has been pouring nonstop here). I served the log with rosewater macaroons I had made earlier. I might also try rolling the log from the longer side next time to get a longer log."

"Everything tastes great! All steps were easy to follow, but it does take time from start to finish. I tried to follow as closely as possible with ingredients and procedures. My biggest challenge is rolling the cake back up with filling and not having it break (is there a secret I could learn)? I had the most fun with the meringues! I joined the blog to expand my experiences in baking, and these recipes do not disappoint! Thanks!"

"This recipe put me in the "Christmas Spirit" today. I have been baking for over 30 years and never made one of these because I thought it was so hard to do. This recipe was easy and everything came together so quick. I used a whipped cream icing inside my Yule Log and used rosemary to look like pine branches, with cranberries and a sprinkling of powdered sugar as snow, giving it a festive look!"
