The Best Yule Logs in Toronto

The best Yule logs in Toronto make it easy to use cake, mousse, buttercream and more as valuable holiday decor. Beyond that, they're the traditional sweet you'll want on the table as your feast draws to a close.

A Yule log, or bûche de Noël, is a European import dating back to the 18th century. Said to represent the log traditionally burned on Christmas Eve to ensure luck in the year ahead, the cakes have become an essential holiday must-have for many in northern climes.

Today's contemporary takes tend to look less like lumber and more like elaborate confections bedecked and bedazzled for the year's most festive days. Concealed beneath their delicate façade, they hide a symphony of ingredients, blending flavours that hit all the indulgent notes you want from a once-a-year treat.

These logs may not ensure blessings in the year to come, but they guarantee the sweetest finishes to any festive meal. Try the best Yule logs in Toronto and celebrate the creative culinary minds taking tradition into thrilling new territory.

Thobors

Thobors

Bedecked for the season with a flurry of decorations, Thobors' bûches de Noël mix classic French technique with holiday-appropriate kitsch. Offered in three flavours, from tropical to pecan-driven or dark chocolate with raspberry, each log comes in three sizes perfect for parties of six to 16.

The Tempered Room

The Tempered Room

Only the good-humoured, extraordinarily talented team at The Tempered Room could make a Yule log look like a lump of coal and have us all clamouring to buy one. Inspired by the forest floor and crafted in worship of the cocoa bean, this log may be made for those on the naughty list but should be reserved for everyone else. With chocolate-dipped candied reindeer lichen, cherrywood smoked, creamy dark couverture chocolate mousse, birch syrup sponge, and more, this Christmas miracle could have the nice among us rethinking our ways.

Roselle Desserts

This darling Corktown bakery has two 4-inch dessert logs on offer this year. The Paradise — or, vacation in a bûche, as the owners call it — combines mango and passionfruit cremeux with coconut lime mousse and a coconut dacquoise. Then there's the unapologetically rich Chocolate Bûche, featuring dark chocolate cake, 70% dark chocolate cremeux, milk chocolate mousse and a dark chocolate glaze.

Nadege

Nadege

The new Sweet Holiday log joins Nadège's three other Yule log flavours this year. Crafted from vanilla mousse, citron cake and compote, berry compote and creamy, lemon chantilly cream, the Sweet Holiday is a fresh, bright take on tradition.
