Spending time with your loved ones is what Christmas is all about, but the annual occasion also encompasses many other elements. Enjoying a few festive drinks, exchanging gifts and eating your way through a feast are all on the list, as are marvelling at festive ornaments and peering up at a tree. And when it comes to both food and decorations, plenty of folks take both areas very seriously.

Every time that December 25 rolls around, are you obsessed with having (and devouring) the perfect dessert? Are you the type of person who goes much further than simply decking the halls with boughs of holly (and tinsel, lights and other trimmings)? If so, then you might want to add Black Star Pastry's new cherry Christmas tree cake to your must-have list. From the folks that gave the world that famed, super-Instagrammable strawberry watermelon cake, it's a 35-centimetre dessert that resembles a snow-dusted Christmas tree, is obviously edible, and will also look rather striking sitting in the middle of your table as part of your festive spread.

Available in both Sydney and Melbourne — at Black Star Pastry's Newtown, Rosebery, Moore Park and St Kilda stores — the cake is covered in white chocolate and vanilla mousse, and adorned with edible decorations. So, it definitely looks the part. Inside, you'll find many a treat, starting with a base of puffed rice, candied orange and milk chocolate crunch base. From there, it's layered with lemon and yoghurt sponge, citrus marmalade, praline crunch, cherry compote made with cherry wine, tea jelly and cherry mousse.

The cake serves 10–15 people — or fewer if you're keen on giving yourself one or more hefty slices. It'll set you back $150, and there are only a limited number available, so getting in quick is recommended. To get your hands on one, you'll need to place your order online, then pick it up in the two days immediately before Christmas.

Black Star Pastry's cherry Christmas tree cake is available to order online until 4pm on Tuesday, December 22, to pick up on either Wednesday, December 23 or Thursday, December 24.
