This is the third annual Bûche de Noël Competition in Portland. This event is hosted by Rushmore Baking and Ace Hotel.

A bûche de Noël 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.

Local chefs were asked to create a unique bûche de Noël 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

There will also be a limited cash bar with beer, wine, eggnog, hot chocolate and cider.

Proceeds of this event, as well as a raffle, will benefit the Q Center, a wonderful organization that supports the LGBTQ community.
