Therefore, the yule log looks like the cazette, with a nod to the quilling decorations, a technique the chef loved on the Lorraine markets. As a matter of facts, in this revisited Cazette, thin layers remind us of the rolled paper technique taught to children to create airy snow flakes to decorate the Christmas tree with.
