This log cake looks so pretty, we can't stop staring at it. Look at all the snow on top, that adds a little more gaeity to the already happy cake!

Nothing says Christmas like a good, rich, boozy plum cake. This one looks like every single bite of it is loaded with drunken dried fruits and nuts. This one's for all those crooning, 'All I want for Christmas is booze!'

6. Vegan Chocolate cake decorated with holly

This one's for all the health-conscious people out there who can't compromise their diets during the holiday season. This cake looks very indulgent, but it is actually a vegan chocolate cake with cranberry and chia jam and its frosting is made from sweet potato and cocoa.

7. Christmas tree Cake
What's better than a lit-up and decked-up Christmas tree? An edible one of-course. This one looks like it's ready to grace your dining table as the center piece for your Christmas feast.

8. Christmas stocking-themed Cake

Christmas stockings are traditionally hung over the fireplace and are stuffed with presents. These stocking cakes are perfect for your kiddie Christmas party!

9. Gingerbread Man-themed cake

Gingerbread men will run, but you can still have them on your cake. How about an entire family of them, sitting happily atop a decadent cake, along with a dozen other goodies? Seems pretty jolly to us!


10. Santa-themed Cake

What's X'Mas without Father Christmas' face plastered on literally everything? The genial and plump face of Santa Claus has been filling kids with excitement for ages. This one looks like it's ready to go, 'Ho, ho, ho', any moment now.

Christmas cakes are indeed the essence of the feast. Happy holidays anyone!
