Just wondering the best way to decorate a yule log? BC or fondant? How do I get that bark look?
TIA!

I have made one before and used coffee buttercream for the filling, and then chocolate ganache all over, then just used a fork to create the 'bark look'. But you can use either, it depends what kind of look you want to achieve. icon_smile.gif

Which kind of ganache did you use? Poured? Or the kind you use under BC? At what point did you run the fork through for the look?
Thanks

No not poured, have it at a consistency so that it is spreadable. It does not need to be all neat as you want a rough look. Then run your fork through it as soon as you are satisfied that your roulade is completely covered. Don't wait too long as it may set and end up dragging.
