I haven't been feeling very well recently so my grand ideas for Christmas Day pudding have gone out the window. Instead I am eyeing out a chocolate yule log at Tescos but would like to dress it up a bit so it looks as if I've gone to a little bit of effort. Any ideas?

The simplest would be a sprig of holly and a sprinkling of icing sugar 'snow'. The home baking aisle will also have edible robins, reindeer etc. I hope you will feel well enough to enjoy Christmas, don't overdo it!

All the above and if its big enough cut a piece of one end and arrange it at right angles so it looks like a branch. I always think that gives a homemade feel.

I will be baking one as usual, on Sunday, in fact this is a tradition I wish that I had never started! The usual fight to get it rolled up in the teatowel!?

petitpois yes, just a sprinkling of icing sugar and a sprig of holly and a little robin or other bird.

You can get glitter icing sugar and little edible silver stars in the cake decoration section of any supermarket. Put the icing sugar in a tea strainer and shake over the Yule log and then scatter the stars.

wear dress whatever you are the most comfortable wearing . Also wear you most comfortable walking shoes. I also would not heed the advice of someone who has not been to Vegas for several years.
