Small Christmas Themed Cakes

Hi,
Next week in our food tech. class we are making and decorating small cakes on a Christmas theme. I am a bit stuck for ideas so was wondering if anyone could help me. It needs to be simple, as we only have one hour to make the cakes, cool them and ice them.
Any ideas would be gratefully recieved.
Thankyou x

White frosting and coconut and then stick sprigs of fake holly leaves and berries around the bottom.

I'd likely make small square cakes and decorate them with fondant icing and decorate them to look like Christmas packages. Or small round cakes that look like Christmas ornaments. If you could find a platter that looks like a tree, you could do both and present them accordingly.

Or holly berry cakes on a holly leaf napkin....what do you have to serve them on or does presentation matter?
