This delight is of French origin, and dates back to the celebrations of the winter solstice, when they used to burn in the homes a woody trunk, so that with the fire they would start a year full of light; When the chimneys began to disappear in most of the homes, the ritual of burning the trunk was replaced by the elaboration of a kind of cake that with its shape and color represented the trunk that would be burned. It is a really delicious dessert that will brighten any Christmas party and that will surprise all the guests, not only for its flavor but for its wonderful appearance. Dare to prepare it and you will see that you will not regret it and that it will become your favorite dessert.
