Our Southern spin on the traditional French bûche de Noël is made with chiffon cake, espresso buttercream, and a rich chocolate buttercream, and it’s decorated with sugared cranberries and rosemary sprigs and pistachio “moss”; you can use some or all of these and any other festive additions you like. Let me warn you, this recipe is a labor of love, but it is so fun to make, and you can spread out the steps over a couple of days. It’s a showstopping centerpiece for your Christmas table.
