Did you know they make Vanilla Marshmallow frosting? Cause I didn’t! LOL.
Easy Yule Log Recipe Using Cake Mix
1 yule log
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp powdered sugar
1 (12oz) container fluffy marshmallow frosting
1 (12oz) container whipped chocolate frosting
Fresh cranberries and rosemary for garnish
In a large bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer for 5 minutes until frothy and pale yellow in color.
Add cake mix, water, and oil and beat on low for 2 minutes.
Line a baking pan then coat liner with baking spray. Make sure to grease the sides of the baking sheet as well.
Pour batter onto the prepared baking sheet and spread evenly.
Bake at 350˚ for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
When done, remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
While the cake is still warm, grab a linen dishtowel. Sprinkle both sides of the towel with powdered sugar to prevent the cake from sticking to it then lay it on top of the cake. Holding the towel and pan together, gently flip upside down so the cake drops onto the towel. Lay on a clean surface.
Peel off the liner. Then tightly but gently roll the cake, keeping the towel in place to separate the layers. Place the rolled cake on a cooling rack and let cool for at least 15 minutes.
When cooled, gently unroll the cake and spread it with marshmallow frosting. Gently but tightly roll cake to form a log. Place onto a serving dish, seam side down. Frost outside and ends with chocolate frosting
Using a fork, create a bark-like pattern in the frosting. Garnish with fresh cranberries and rosemary or decorate your log in a wintery scene using whatever decorative items you can find!
