Cocoa Frosting Yule Log
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 20 min.
I used this recipe and it was pretty good. Just like "egoyette" said the corn syrup made the frosting very heavy and prevented it from setting wich cause the frosting to slide down the sides of the cake! My daughter siad that it was terrible and so did my son. I was dissapointed and my husband said it was ok not the best recipe! DON'T USE THIS RECIPE!
I used this recipe for its cocoa frosting recipe, which tasted REALLY good! Not too sweet, but definitely chocolaty! My only problem was that the corn syrup made the frosting very heavy and prevented it from setting, which then ended up with the frosting sliding down the sides of the cake! I'd leave the corn syrup out of the recipe next time, and add more butter if needed to maintain consistency. The cake recipe sounds good, but I decided to use a different recipe I found using actual chocolate, instead of powder. It's the original yule-log recipe here on this site. I also used a basic butter-cream for a filling, mixed with chopped walnuts.

the cake color doesnt look very dark, it needs more chocolate cocoa powder or something...i like the look of it, but the color is off
