It's Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Christmas on These Food Blogs
If you're anything like us, you've spent most of December with your eyes glazing over, dragging item after item to your virtual shopping cart and crossing your fingers that all the gifts would arrive in time. That said, you can't blame us for taking a break here and there to ogle some of the cutest holiday treats in the blogosphere — no shipping fee required.
Some people have holiday wreaths nailed to their doors, but Alana Jones-Mann set out to spread festive cheer in the baking department. Her adorable, green-as-can-be Wreath Cookies (pictured above) are all about leafy texture, and packing them up in little boxes makes for a cute, edible gift.
Hanging stockings on your fireplace can sure work up an appetite, or at least that's what we tell ourselves. Bake a batch of these super-colorful Sprinkle Stocking Sugar Cookies from Sprinkle Bakes and wrap them up as a cute edible "stocking" stuffer while you're at it.
Deck a towering cake with a Christmas-colored spiral of rock candy for an Instagram-worthy holiday centerpiece: I Am Baker's Rock Candy Christmas Cake. Once you slice into it, you'll see how it's red and green through and through.
The yule log can't have all the fun during the holiday season, can it? The Cakegirls' wintry Birch Log Cake has the look of a natural birch branch, thanks to a white candy coating painted to look just like the bark.
Slide plush, snow-white marshmallows onto skewers to make Celebrate Creativity's Marshmallow Snowman Sticks, each iced with little grins, carrot noses and red scarves. Pack up each treat-on-a-stick in festive baggies for a quick-to-make edible gift.
If you have a Christmas tree at home, it might smell super good, but how about a tree that's fit to eat, too? Each one of Just a Taste's Chocolate Christmas Tree Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting comes with a colorful, sprinkle-flecked tree made out of green-hued candy melts.
