New Photo Mission: Holiday Desserts

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

If you needed an excuse to tuck into dessert, this is it! (You’re welcome!)

Holy smokes. We don’t know about you guys, but we have overindulged this holiday season. Nonetheless, even after the most delicious meal, we can always make some room for dessert. The delicious conclusion of every meal, desserts are the always scrumptious! As this is a season steeped in tradition anyway, it’s hardly surprising that there are hundreds of special desserts, biscuits and sweet delights connected to it.

Our newest mission with Huffington Post challenges you to step up the literal plate, and share your Holiday Desserts.
