Christmas Cakes and Bûches

As Christmas approaches, the pastry display cabinets come alive with the finest yule logs and cakes.

We have curated a diverse dessert menu, offering a wide range of flavors and presentation styles.

Christmas is traditionally a time for gathering with loved ones. This year, Elena Adell and Hans Ovando have prepared a unique offering that promises to captivate all. It’s an online Christmas pastry course brimming with enchantment, featuring 5 distinct yule logs and cakes to enhance your holiday feast.

These recipes are creative and delightful, including Hans Ovando’s panettone mousse log with orange and lemon, as well as Elena Adell’s cake, designed with multiple layers resembling a picturesque Christmas postcard.

Prepare each cake with enthusiasm, thinking about how happy you will make everyone who tastes it.

For us pastry chefs, there’s no greater joy than witnessing the sheer delight people experience when they lay their eyes on what we’ve lovingly baked. The essence of each recipe extends beyond its application in a single cake; they’re versatile recipes that can empower you in the future as you craft your own menu.

As always, our aim is for this course to serve as not merely an endpoint, but as a launchpad that sparks your creativity and introduces you to novel and astonishing concepts.

You’ll master the art of crafting delicate sponge cakes, dacquoise, sablée, streusel, reconstructed streusel; as well as compotes, gels, mousses, caramel, namelaka, toffee, and glazes… a comprehensive initiation into the world of Christmas-themed pastry.
