What is a Buche de Noel? What is a Sugar Mold?


Saturday is the time to find out. A Christmas Bazaar will be held at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in Breckenridge from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the historic yellow church on the corner of French and Lincoln. Hot wassail and holiday music will warm the shoppers.

There will be a wide variety of Christmas decorations, cookies, cakes, breads and decorations. Among the most unusual will be Buche de Noel, an elegant chocolate covered dessert “log” that would be a perfect finish to a holiday dinner. A sugar mold is an old wooden form in which liquid sugar was poured to make sugar cylinders in colonial times. The crafty folks at St. John’s have created these molds that make beautiful table or mantel piece decorations with candles and greens.

Both locals and visitors who have run short of time to shop or bake will find the answer to all their last-minute needs at the bazaar. Beautifully decorated coffee spoons, hand-knit hats, purses, scarves, mother-child apron sets, paintings, photographs, cards, tree and home decorations, jewelry, new and used books will all be available to ease holiday shopping. It’s close, it’s friendly, and everything is handcrafted with love.
