Olympic Inspired Sweets
We are already 8 days in to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and I am hooked. The stories, the competition, the tragedy and triumph – this is what the Olympics are all about.
So what better way to celebrate and honor the 2010 Winter Olympic Games then with a collection of the best Winter Olympic inspired goodies I could find. Really, this search was prompted by one shining example, Marian’s Olympic Mascot Cookies from Sweetopia.net. She is a true sugar master. The time that goes into these cookies is incredible.
The mascots this year are comical. Quatchi is a sasquatch – how funny is that? A sasquatch that wears boots and earmuffs no less. And Mukmuk…a marmot. “Hey, nice marmot!”
Another great example of an Olympic inspired sweet is this is Olympic mascot cake done by Anne Elizabeth Cakes. I love the mascots – she did an excellent job.
Of course we need a cupcake – so here it is…the Olympic Ring cupcake done by Clever Cupcakes in Montreal, Canada.
Since the Olympics are being held in Vancouver, British Columbia we should probably have a native dessert as well. The Nanaimo bar is named for the city of Nanaimo in British Columbia and consists of wafer layer, a custard layer and then is covered in chocolate. Here, The Kitchn shows us their version of this Olympic inspired treat.
I hope this inspires you to make your own Olympic themed treats to eat while cheering on Team USA, of course. Win Big Team USA – you make me proud to be an American!
