1. Frosty the Snowman cake pop

Then use a pipette to carefully draw on eyes and a nose using multicolored frosting.

This simple pastry dish will be your go-to all holiday season:

2. Brown butter sweet potato pie ice cream

If you’re celebrating the holidays in a warm locale, this sweet potato pie-flavored ice cream is a cool, refreshing way to get into the holiday spirit! Start by mixing heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Then mix in condensed milk and vanilla bean paste. Add a slice of sweet potato pie. (You can use store-bought or make your own from scratch.) Then pour the ice cream mixture into a freezer-safe dish, adding the sweet potato pie in layers. Pop the dish into the freezer overnight and enjoy!

Then use pretzels for antlers, and use the buttercream frosting and candy pieces to give your reindeer features.
