Time has passed into December. Does that make any sense to you? It’s time to plan the Christmas dinner menu and pull out the seasonal cookie cutters.
Some of us here find solace in the kitchen, and we’re not sure if that’s because it coincides with the end of the year when you start overthinking about all these last 12 months have meant to you. Baking gingerbread and watching your holiday sweets cool on a rack brings back fond memories. It’s almost as if the holidays are pleading with us to whip up some baked goods with all the warm, comforting aromas filling the air.
Here are some of the most impressively original Christmas delicacies we’ve seen, made by people who went out of their way to celebrate the holiday in style. People on this list aren’t stingy with the tasty stuff; from buttery Christmas cakes to festive gingerbread houses, there’s something for everyone’s sweet tooth. These Christmas food suggestions should serve as a jumping-off point for your own holiday party spread. What these folks have created will astound you, and who knows? Maybe it will motivate you to try your hand at something similar!

Whether you observe Christmas because of your religious beliefs or simply because it is winter and cold and everyone needs a nap, you will likely desire solace in some flour and butter.
However, what if you just don’t have it in you to bake a batch of Christmas cookies? And what if you crave something more individualized? Every year, a few crazy talented bakers share their extraordinary creations on social media, showing how far they can push the boundaries of traditional Christmas gifts. They may be hiding in plain sight, but their visitors (and the Internet) will never forget what they’ve made!
