Are These the Best Holiday Desserts Ever?

The holidays are a time when we all love to indulge in a little baking therapy. Whether you’re a complete novice or a professional, Christmas is a time when everyone retreats to the kitchen to make something delicious for friends, family and loved ones!  There’s really nothing quite so special as receiving a homemade dessert, cookie platter, cupcake bouquet, or, if you’re really lucky, a Gingerbread house! If you’re stuck for inspiration, we have you covered, these twenty dessert offerings are some of the BEST we’ve ever seen!

How perfect is this little red number by Caroline Barnes of Love Cake Create! We just adore that gold script on the front of the cake surrounded by adorable fondant decorations!

This sensational holiday ornament by Garima Rawat of The Sugar Teddy is actually made from Gingerbread #uhmazing. We would love a few of these hanging on our tree this year. My only question is, does Garima ship out of country?
