One of the best parts of the holiday season is all the yummy treats. It is time to indulge in gingerbread, yule logs, and sugar cookies. As these sweets are only available once a year, you'll want to rush to try them before they are gone. To help you enjoy tasty bites, we've gathered up where you can get the best holiday desserts in Vancouver.
Right now, you are probably going to plenty of holiday parties, but you don't want to show up empty-handed.
Instead, you can pick up a box cookies or a cake to thank your host. Trust us, they don't need another bottle of wine they're not going to drink.
While you are at it, it would be a good idea to pick up another box to share with your work colleagues too.
Many of Vancouver's bakeries have a lineup of decadent desserts that look as good as they taste. This year you'll be able to try Christmas chimney cakes, candy cane cinnamon buns, and even a Rudolph cake.
Plus, there are also plenty of classic Christmas sweets for sale too. Artisan pastries and chocolate maker Thomas Haas told Narcity in an email that they will have "his famed Stollen, a delectable traditional German Christmas bread" that's a must-try if you love bready treats.
