I never made this yule log cake before but thought it would be the perfect dessert to bring for Christmas dinner. It was so easy to make and it looked so real, no kidding! This filled, rolled cake used to make a yule log is very similar to sponge cake and is very easy to roll. You want to roll it from the long end to make a more narrow, longer roll. When I added the powdered sugar, it really brought the log to life!
