La bûche de Noël

For the current Let's Face it Friday Challenge over at the Peachy Keen Challenge blog we were asked to make a card or layout with you favorite holiday recipe. About 12 years ago I lived in France for 17 months. I spent two Christmases in France and my favorite Christmas treat was une buche de Noel. It is a yummy chocolate and cream filled creation rolled up and decorated to look like a log. It was often decorated with cute little decorations like holly and such. I am told that they are traditionally served with mushrooms made with meringue and that is why I have added cute little meringue colored mushrooms to my recipe layout.

Here is a little bit of a closeup:

The holly is actually a hidden recipe card. You just pull it up and the front has the ingredients on it and the back will have the directions on it. Here is a picture with the recipe card pulled out.

Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora

Items Used:

Create a Critter Cricut cartridge
Peachy Keen Stamps - Princess Faces
DCWV - Christmas Stack
Tim Holtz Inks for inking
Sakura Gellyroll pen

  2. That is so cute. I love it. Recipe sounds so YUMMY.


  3. This is so cute Glora! I love hidden pockets!

  4. What a neat idea. I remember being in French Club while in high school and we would have yummy treats like this too. I am sure it is quite different than France's quality.

    Hope you will stop by when you get a chance.
