This Christmas, Ladurée reinvents a classic dessert,  the Christmas yule log, with a new design bringing a showstopping pop of colour to Christmas tables .

The Christmas yule logs have been created by Executive Pastry Chef Julien Alvarez (ex-pastry chef at Le Bristol), and this modern Christmas Log is a tribute to Ladurée’s iconic macaron.

Inspired by its shape, the logs are crafted with soft biscuits filled with a creamy liquid centre and crisp base.

The colourful range features classic and trending flavours; Vanilla Pecan, Ispahan, Pistachio, Chocolate Hazelnut and Mango Yuzu. The logs would be a great complement to vary the Christmas desserts table décor. 

The yule logs are available in Ladurée stores and for click and collect at Individual Log: £10.504/6 Log Portion: £42
