Amazing Christmas desserts on Westside?

My sister just phoned and wants me to bring two desserts on Christmas. She rejected mincemeat pie as I am the only one who likes it. I have thought of a Buche de Noel from Emil's, but I am at a loss for a second. Many thanks.

        1. Not sure if cream puffs from Beard Papa's (Sawtelle, just north of Olympic) qualifies as Christmas dessert? But the Beard Papa guy has a white beard just like Santa!
