Get into the holiday spirit with these festive party cakes from around the interwebs! From Yule Logs to fun tree toppers, here's 10 winter-themed treats for inspiration!

1. A Christmas Forest Topper
This pretty display was made by Kathleen Ballos for Oh Happy Day!

2. A Rustic Inspired Christmas Cake

Love this pretty display by Lyndsay Sung of Coco Cake Land.

4. A Scalloped Ombre Pink Yule Log
A lovely idea from Knot Magazine.

5. A Romantic Tiered Cake
A pretty idea for a romantic holiday or winter wedding.  From Green Wedding Shoes (Photographer: Samantha Erin Photography).

6. Chocolate Gingerbread with Marshmallow Icing
This tasty recipe is an oldie but goodie.  Love the snowy-looking marshmallow icing. From Mat pa Bordet. (Norwegian)

7. A Holiday Croquembouche
A beautiful dessert choice for a winter wedding or party. Via Snippet & Ink.

8. Five Layer Celebration Cake
This cake reminds me of something you'd find at a candy store. Replace the sprinkles with candy cane shavings and you'd have a pretty holiday-inspired cake.  From Lemon-Sugar.

9. Blackforest Gateau
Melted chocolate turns into a beautiful blackforest with this fun idea from Desserts for Breakfast.
