Buche de Noel Competition (Supporting Q Center)
December 12 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm PST
Buche de Noel Competition 2018
The third annual Buche de Noel Competition in Portland! This event is hosted by Rushmore Baking and Ace Hotel.
A buche de noel is a holiday cake in the shape of a log. The tradition began hundreds of years ago in Europe with a real, decorated log being thrown onto a fire in celebration of the winter solstice. Thankfully, the tradition has evolved into a much more delicious celebration of the holidays.
We’ve asked local chefs to create a unique buche de noel for this competition and you, the guest, get to try them all and vote for your favorite! This year’s competitors are…
Kristen Napoleoni – Rushmore Baking
Anna Henricks – Sweetheart St. John’s
Armand Sid – Confiterie
Jenni Welliver – Little Red’s Bakeshop
Shannon Levens – Shoofly Vegan Bakery
Victoria Hutfilz – Clyde Common
Danielle Bailey – Bullard
Beth Leppek – Water Avenue Coffee
Tickets are $20 (plus a small service fee) which includes tastes of all the participating chef’s cakes. Proceeds of this event, as well as a raffle, will go to Q Center, a local charity supporting the LGBTQ community. There will also be a limited CASH bar with beer, wine, eggnog, hot chocolate and cider!
We hope you join us for the festivities!
