It’s Christmas and this calls for a sweet celebration. Whether you’re ordering for a party or gifting it to your friends and family, desserts are the delightful thing about enjoying Christmas.

However, in a group of people, there must be different taste palettes, right? Not everyone is going to enjoy the popular peppermint candy cane or the traditional fruit cake. Some people go for healthy keto-based ones and some just eat what they see. Everybody’s got their own preference.

Hence, we’re catering this Christmas dessert list to you. There’s something for everyone in the group.

A Stickler For Tradition But Still Young At Heart

Whenever it’s Christmas, you’ll always see the Yule Log Cake or Bûche de Noël, don’t you? Usually, it’s chocolate flavored swiss roll cake but they can vary now like vanilla, red velvet, and many more.

Here, we recommend the Christmas Log Cake by Elevete Patisserie.

What’s so special about their Yule Log Cake is that it features moist chocolate cake with their signature salted caramel buttercream. It’s covered with a rich dark chocolate couverture frosting for the bark.

It’s chocolate in a shape of a log! Traditional yet fun to look at. Perfect for those who are young at heart.
