So I want to make another buche de noel for Christmas, and a friend recommended that I try glazing the cake with a thinned out jam, letting it cool, and then frosting it. But I'm worried that the jam will change the flavor of my cake... can I use melted chocolate instead? Or should I just hold my horses and wait out the next two days?
