I think I might just make a log this year, was going to make a large chocolate cake for my boys and an apircot loaf for me. I think they will get a log instead. I'm not too keen on sweet stuff so one piece of chocolate cake is my limit I let them eat the rest, also I hate buttercream yuck. I do like apircot loaf though as it is very fragrant and fruity
