With Christmas cookies, gingerbread houses, and holiday traditions galore, it seems like the parade of sweets is never-ending. And what better way to welcome the holidays than with a little slice of heavenly cake?

We scoured our favorite bakeries for some of the prettiest and most festive holiday cakes we could find to bring you gorgeous works of seasonal confectionary art. Not only did we find a delicious-looking Christmas tree replica, but we found a sneaky Santa diving into a chimney and a gorgeous replica of a cup of Christmas hot cocoa! From decadent cake pop ornaments to sweet gift boxes you wish you could unwrap, these holiday cakes will get you in the holiday spirit in no time!

Cakes are an art form — an edible art form for that matter. And for many sweet lovers, cake is just as important as the main course on a holiday. After all, a cake is not something that is simply eaten and forgotten; it makes a statement with how good it looks, how great it tastes, and it represents the dessert table as a whole.

As you browse through our selection of favorite cakes, take a minute to think about what dessert you love most this holiday season — and get ready for some decorative inspirations for your own treats!
