Instructions
Line jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Once baked, release chocolate sponge cake from parchment paper. Spread a thin layer of buttercream over chocolate sponge cake and roll up tightly to create a long log. Place in the refrigerator to firm up for about an hour. Cut an angled piece off of each end that measures about 3" on one side and 1" on the other. Spread some buttercream to attach the cut pieces, one to the front of the log and one to the top, angling the nice cut edge outward. Spread buttercream over the log everywhere except for the cut ends. Pull the end of a small spatula in straight lines along the log to create a tree bark texture. Roll out green fondant and cut out different size holly leaves. Texture with a leaf veiner. Allow leaves to dry on foam or flower formers to create gentle curves. Roll small balls of red fondant for berries. After leaves and berries have dried brush with disco dust to add sparkle. Paint with confectioners glaze to set glitter and add shine to leaves and berries. Place in groupings of 3 on log and add Merry Christmas plaque on top.
