As the weather begins to turn colder, we all get into the holiday spirit in a different way. For you, that might mean putting up beautiful lights and decorations around your home, buying thoughtful gifts for others or making a wishlist for yourself, or simply preparing to cook your favorite classic holiday dish. 
If that last option really sounds like you, and you have a sweet tooth that makes dessert your favorite meal, you’re in luck with this list. If you, a friend, family member, or loved one simply loves all things cars, or you just want a fun new dessert on the table this Christmas, try making one of these car-themed Christmas desserts this holiday season. 
You can work cars into your holiday desserts.

Wilton Christmas Camper Kit

If you want to build a car out of gingerbread cookies this holiday season, the Wilton Ready to Build Christmas Camper Kit is the perfect buy. Listed on Walmart for just under $15, this 10-piece kit will satisfy your sweet tooth and love for cars all in one. 
The kit comes with pre-baked gingerbread cookies, three different colors of icing, and a variety of candy decorations (including a wreath), so you can style a Christmas-themed camper vehicle that will look tasty and festive on your table this holiday season.
The Hot Wheels Cookie Garage is perfect to make with small children who love cars this holiday season. Essentially, this cool kit works the same way you’d make a gingerbread house—but instead of a house, you’re making a garage!
You (and your child!) will love building a full garage with this cooking making kit. According to Create-A-Treat, inside the kit you’ll find nine pre-baked gingerbread Hot Wheels cookies, packets of red and blue icing, two icing writers, tons of colorful candies for decorating, and even Hot Wheels character cut outs. 
With the Hot Wheels Cookie Garage, your creativity knows no bounds—you can make the garage into anything your heart desires! The item is listed on Walmart for just over $30 this holiday season. 

BMW Car Cake

For the more experienced bakers, or those that want a challenge in the kitchen this Christmas, BMW put out their recipe for how to make a replica BMW entirely out of cake. If you can pull this one off, you’ll surely be impressing your guests this Christmas. 
The recipe involves making your own gingerbread to use as the base of the car with ingredients like sugar, honey, butter, vanilla extract, eggs, flour, and of course, gingerbread (along with other spices). To create the car decorations, all you’ll need is egg whites, powdered sugar, and some food coloring.
Once you’ve gathered all your ingredients, you’ll need to make the gingerbread dough, which takes over four hours. When the dough is ready, BMW suggests printing out a car template you want to use to form the cake, cutting out each individual piece, then gluing them onto cardboard. After each car piece is made out of gingerbread dough, it’s time to bake them.
Lastly, you’ll need to delicately assemble and decorate the car pieces. BMW suggests letting them sit overnight with the decorating substance before fully assembling the car the next day. When you decorate your car, use creative freedom to make it look like your favorite BMW—we think the exclusive BMW M5 CS in the video above would make a great car cake! 

Gingerbread Christmas Pickup Truck and Tree Kit

If you want to add a little more of the Christmas spirit into your at-home gingerbread car decorating kit, the Gingerbread Christmas Pickup Truck and Tree Kit is perfect for you. Found on Amazon for a little over $20, this kit lets you decorate both cars and Christmas items.
Inside the kit, you’ll find gingerbread panels to build a pickup truck, a gingerbread tree, candy lights for decoration, icing pouches, and even some festive holiday stickers. If you or your child loves pickup trucks, this kit will be a home run.
