Bûche de Noël...Little Debbie style

Andrew begged me to make a bûche de Noël, so we cozied together on the sofa to Google.

He had clicked on the Yodel Yule Log before I could even type genoise.

A dessert made of snack cakes? The very thought!

He was not to be deterred.

He unwrapped, sliced, and decorated--all by himself! Suddenly, convenience looked a whole lot sweeter.

Cost: $1 for 10 Little Debbie Swiss Rolls, plus $1 for homemade frosting and colors.

I love it! Cute and easy, what could be better? Oh, I know - easy enough for him to do it himself!

Merry Christmas, Meredith!

Perfect!! Absolutely perfect!! He will never miss the genoise and pastry cream, but he will definitely remember making these by himself.

Awe those are so sweet. They remind me of the yule log made of plaster of paris and coffee cans that my grandma always had sitting on her stereo.

Merry Christmas to all!!!

Beautiful Andrew! I think my 4 yo would love this, I'll have to remember for next year as he has recently outgrown a food allergy and can eat some of these previously off-limits treats!
