Our Favorite Christmas Cakes
Bûche de Noël
Bûche de Noël—or Yule Log—is a sweet holiday tradition that you won’t want to pass up. It is rumored that the first Yule Log Cake was made as early as the 1600s, but this delicious dessert wasn’t popularized until the 19th century in France. This Bûche de Noël gets a modern flavor upgrade with rich coffee cream filling and delicate decorations. Get ready to celebrate!
Holiday Petits Fours
So maybe you didn’t save room for Christmas dessert, but you can still satisfy your sweet tooth with these holiday petits fours. Don’t be fooled—these bite-sized sweets are packed with decadent chocolate flavor. They’re perfect for sharing! Pass a plate around the holiday table and don’t hesitate to grab just a few extra for yourself.
Holiday Loaf Cakes
Not every cake needs intricate decoration. This set of cakes comes with four festive flavors: eggnog, apple streusel, pumpkin, and cranberry orange. The slight sweetness makes these loaves perfect for serving with Christmas morning brunch.
Red Velvet Christmas Cake
Add a little flair to this classic Christmas cake. There’s nothing quite like time-tested red velvet cake topped with cream cheese frosting for the holidays. Hand-decorated poinsettias top this dessert that will please everyone around your table.
White Christmas Coconut Cake
If the cold weather is making you miss all your favorite tropical flavors, this cake will definitely brighten up your holiday table. White cake, sweet buttercream, and flaky coconut promise a white Christmas, even if you didn’t wake up to snow on Christmas morning.
