Stockings aren't the only things getting stuffed in New Jersey, as the Christmas season also means an extra volume of baked goods that taste as good as they look.

Here's a round-up of 'inspo' for a dessert centerpiece amid all the gatherings and parties from now until New Year's. (Holiday orders for extra-special items are closed for many bakeries around New Jersey. But, it's worth a look and call.)

Bovella's Bakery in Westfield is a year-round staple for Union County area residents. There's also the newer location, Bovella’s Bakery Cafe on Rt 22 in Mountainside.

The Polka Dot Cupcake Shop in Lyndhurst shows off a berry and garland take on the semi-naked cake style that's a trend around NJ.

Proud Jersey Girl Erin Vogt’s first reporting gig involved her Fisher Price tape recorder. As a wife and momma of two kiddies, she firmly believes that life’s too short to drink bad coffee.  A fan of the beach, Dave Grohl and karma, in no particular order.
