Earl Grey, Hazelnut & Chocolate Yule Log... Happy New Year 2015!

This was the first time I had prepared a dessert for a Christmas meal.
It was usually Jenny’s job to do it, ever since she’s working as a professional patisserie, she doesn’t bake much at home.

This cake consists of 4 components:
Earl grey creme
Hazelnut mousse
Chocolate sponge cake
Chocolate chantilly cream

I quite enjoyed preparing the yule log & I'm sure I’ll be making this from time to time as I really like the combo.
A rich chocolate cake with a smooth nutty mousse & a sophisticated note of earl grey tea, all combine every well. 
Everyone loved it & commented that it’s very nice.

This has been a great year for me in completing my Ph.D.
Thank you all for your patience & re-joining me this year & the coming years.
Wishing you all the best & happy new year.
