Parisian pâtissier Pierre Hermé has created an exclusive Bouche de Noël or holiday log cake for the holiday season this year. The log cake is unconventional in that it stands upright as opposed to traditional log cakes which are on their side. The cake is made with chocolate biscuits gently layered with light dark chocolate ganache. It comes in a box designed by Louis-Marie de Castelbajac that transforms into a poster once opened. The Pierre Hermé Bouche de Noël is exclusively available from Pierre Hermé stores during the holiday season.
