For holiday dessert season, Magnolia has dreidl and Christmas ornament cupcake boxes and Mr. C carries panettone, but Montage Beverly Hills pastry chef and Last Cake Standing winner Richard Ruskell is making a selection of cupcakes in full 3-D. The number one pastry stunner is currently selling these seasonally-inspired, dark chocolate and ganache cupcakes, designed to look like Christmas balls, ribbon-wrapped gifts, and snowy meadows bearing a lonesome pine, in decorated boxes of fourteen, priced at $60. Yes, that's over four bucks per cupcake, but they sure are pretty! To order Ruskell's treats, give a call to 310-860-5800.
