Rowaida's Christmas Dessert Table

I'm always impressed by how talented readers of this blog truly are. One such reader is Rowaida Flayhan. I have blogged about her before. She is a talented cook and baker from Kuwait who spends much of the year in London. This year she sent me photos of her Christmas dessert table, made exclusively using Martha Stewart recipes! I think they look extraordinary and I'm sure they taste just as wonderful. Many people in Rowaida's life, including her friends and family, have urged her to start a cookbook. You can why if you follow her on Instagram where she often shares many of the delicious-looking creations she makes at home. She is frequently inspired by her Middle-Eastern heritage and her family. She's invited me over for dinner several times! I am so tempted to book a flight! Click here to read more about Rowaida and see more of her beautiful work.
The recipes for this spread include Martha's chocolate yule log, gingerbread snowflakes, reindeer and people, three-dimensional Christmas-tree cookies, a chocolate truffle cake and a sugar-and-spice cake and truffles. See below for the sources.
Rowaida's presentation is always perfect.

Is the cake stand from Martha Stewart Everyday? I remember a lot of green-tinted glass from that line.
