Berkeley: La Bedaine - Fabulous classic Buche de Noel and croquembouche $12 ... twelve dollars

rworange | Dec 11, 200903:56 PM

The yule log will serve six and is letter-perfect classic buche. Wonderful buttercream with meringue mushrooms and little surprises in the frosting ... a juicy cranberry, a raisin, a nut. Absolutely perfect cake with the lovliest background of vanilla.

I asked if there were any other special holiday desserts and that's when the croquembouche was mentioned. The price varies with the size.The start at either $10 or $12, IIRC. He said he wouldn't make them too large because they are very delicate. Call ahead to place an order for these. The yule logs are in the case already.

Fabulous ,... fabulous ... fabulous.
