'Tis the season for holiday baking, and if you are in need of some sweet inspiration, you have come to the right place. Today's post is full of beautiful photos and recipes to carry you through Christmas to New Year's Eve. All this holiday loveliness comes compliments of the lovely Bella Baker, Lauryn Cohen, author of the newly-released bookazine Sweet Gifts. "In Sweet Gifts, I've combined my love of baking with my love of celebrating," says the passionate baker and self-confessed sweets addict. "Gathered here are some of my favorite holiday dessert recipes, some fun and easy crafting projects, plus tips and tricks for styling a stunning dessert table for each holiday." Here are a few of my favorite treats from the bookazine.
