Maybe your Christmas cookies came out a little crispier than expected. Maybe that souffle just refused to rise. And maybe you nailed Grandma’s shortbread recipe. But chances are there’s nothing like this on your holiday table.

And that’s okay. The holidays aren’t about dessert anyway. It’s about family and friends and good cheer.

But. That doesn’t mean we can’t drool over the pictures. And it’s not too late to start planning for next year, so here’s a few bakers and pastry chefs who killed it this year:

Epic Chocolate Trifle

This one gets extra points for being Harry Potter’s favorite pudding.

Struffoli (Italians Rejoice)

Just like Nonna makes.

Buche De Noel (The French Yule Log)

Don’t try and light this one on fire.

Christmas Pudding Ice Cream (The English Showstopper)

While not really traditional, it’s impressive, boozy, and can be made ahead. The trifecta of holiday cheer.

Christmas Wreath Bundt Cake (A Little Southern Charm)

For a show-stopper without the work, try out this bundt cake. Better than Auntie’s.
