Christmas Eve - Vancouver's Gourmet Christmas Desserts

The Christmas Eve Post

This is to help people out on a little last minute Christmas shopping. Whether it’s a potluck, Christmas dinner or last minute gift I thought these edible Christmas art pieces might be of interest.

I haven’t tried any of them so I can’t comment on how they taste. I just wanted to show people what's out there and give some edible holiday/gift ideas. Personally I think the Thomas Haas one has more of a ‘wow-factor’. The Sweet Obsession Croquemebouche looks nice, but I’ve also seen it before and it’s not as original. I feel like a “chef at home” could put it together. Each one of those chocolates on the Thomas Haus O’tannenbaum Moderne is handmade and a different flavour.

Both desserts are available in Vancouver, BC only.

I think this macaroom tree was only for display - I'm sure if you really wanted it you could order it.

  1. Are these the pics you took that night in Thomas Haas? For good (or for bad?), the ones from Thomas Haas look too pretty to eat!

  2. I know!!! That Thomas Haas Christmas tree looks so delicious I wouldn't let anyone touch it. I'd also want to try every single one of those assorted I don't know if I'd bring it anywhere where I would need to share it. ;)
