This week is going to be a hectic hustle for many of us: last minute gifts, travel, and, of course, dealing with the in-laws. So remember: when the stress gets too much, and the urge to throttle a relation becomes a little too overwhelming, just think of today's Sweets. They'll be sure to make you smile.
Or maybe just distract you long enough for your significant other to wrestle the broken gin bottle out of your hand.
Either way: a win, win.
Proof that sometimes it's the little things, and that amateur bakers can still rock the house.
Or, for those of you who prefer your holiday eye-candy with a side of creepy, Bleeding Heart Bakery has you covered:
As my Mainer hubby would say, "Wicket kewl!"
Not that a cake has to be big and sculpted to be a sweet Sweet, of course. Check this little cutie out:
Aren't those "snow"-capped strawberries the best?
Icing purists, rejoice; it IS still possible to make Sweets fondant-free!
In fact, here's more proof:

This is such a simple design, but when done on a large scale (just how big is that piping tip??) it's really quite stunning. I also love the detail on the flower's center.
If you don't think "pink" and "Christmas" go together, you may be about to change your mind:
That snowman's hat. Srsly. SO CUTE.
