With Christmas fast approaching, it's never too early (or too late) to start looking at all that is sweet and delicious for the Chrissy table.

There's the pre-main meal nibbles, the main lunch/dinner, the yummy dessert and the after-dessert... dessert.

And if you were wondering what not only tastes delicious, but has the look and presentation to enhance the festive feel, then look no further.

From the tastiest pavlova recipes to sweet and savoury edible wreaths - your taste bud's will be thanking us - but maybe not your waistline.

Behold, some of the most fabulous Christmas food trends of 2018!

Pavlova done differently

We all love a pavlova at Christmas, because frankly, it would be un-Australian not to.

But if you've never made one before or you're worried about how to get the timing right - we understand that it can be a daunting task.

There are timings to think about, oven temperatures, fear of burning the meringue or sometimes, you just run out of creative ways to make it look good.

Well, the geniuses at Mum Central want to make your life a whole lot easier (and just that little bit more delicious) with some incredible hacks that will get you delivering the world's best pav!

Elf on the Shelf edible makeover

When the Elf on the Shelf comes out of hiding, you know Christmas is just around the corner.

But as we all know, our little Scout Elves need a little bit of extra help to find a new hiding spot each morning. In fact, sometimes, there are just not enough places to show them where to go.

So this year, instead of leaving them to their own devices and giving them the green light to causing a bit of mischief - how about giving them an edible playground, that not only will your kids delight in, but are able to enjoy the next day!

We've compiled three places for your Elf to hang out, while they wait for your little ones to awaken - and which can be enjoyed - and then eaten- by the whole family!

3 ways to use a store-bought mud cake this Christmas

There's nothing like ease at Christmas time.

Often, we have grand plans to make the most extravagant cake on the dessert table, but sometimes, outside factors deter even the best laid plans!

There are last minute gifts to buy, pressies to wrap or you may just have to bake the chrissy ham.

If you still want to try something festive for dessert, but don't have the time to bake - we've prepared three delicious recipes with store-bought cakes and turned them into Christmas works of art.

And the best thing? They're easy peasy and taste delicious.
