(La versione in italiano arriverà a breve... ora sono di corsa!)

This is the last appointment with SHF for this year! Habeas Brulee is hosting th 26th edition of this sweet meeting of bloggers recipes.
The theme for this month was: Sugar Art...
To join this event I present my Christmas creation. The italian name for this sweet is "Tronchetto di Natale" and the French one is Bouche de Noel, I don't know the English word :o(
This recipe comes from the pastry course I followed at the beginning of December.

Add the amarene over the ganache, place them in rows.

Roll the bisquit over a sheet of parchement paper, close the paper and put the roll in freezer for 4-5 hour.
