Let's start with one of the best: a gorgeous hand-painted design by Dahlia's Custom Cakes:
I've given Wilton some good-natured grief before, but I've gotta hand it to them: this Hanukkah kids' cake is adorable!
Some beautifully detailed cookies:

I know: I can hardly believe it, either! Just amazing.
By Melissa of My Cake School
That snowman topper made me squee like a little girl. Or a very big geek. One of the two, anyway.
I am in awe of Dimitrana's skill. Not only are her cakes gorgeous on the outside:
Even the reindeer is handmade!
...her cakes are just as impressive inside:
Those are vertical cake layers, kids. I have no idea how she did it, but she claims instructions are somewhere on her blog. (And while you're there, check out her amazing acorn cookies!)
I'm loving this swirly snowflake topper:
By For The Love of Cake
Such a neat design: you can almost hear the wind whipping through the snow flurries.
And check out the sculpting on this one:

Ah, this restores my faith in the airbrush, right here. Beautiful.
A bit more subtle on the winter theme, but this piping work blows me away:
By Martha Stewart Weddings
If only I had hands that steady. And talent that...uh...talented.
Ok, and just one more from Dimitrana, because I can't help myself:
A cake candle! How cool is that?
And once again, there's a surprise inside: it's a giant jelly roll.
