How’s everyone doing out there? Snow-pocalypse is pummelling Chicago. We even had thundersnow (thunder and lightning during the blizzard)! That’s what it looks like outside, from the comfort of my living room. Maybe I’ll venture out later to take a few more pictures.
The Bears went to the Super Bowl! Obviously I needed to make something just for John. Rice Krispie treats in team colors. Just add food coloring when you’re melting the marshmallows and butter. And the logo was made out of M&M’s.
In 2010, I really hit my stride with baking. Once again, I didn’t care too much for the teams (New Orleans vs. Indianapolis). But I did make some awesome cupcakes based on each cities culinary specialties. Banana foster for New Orleans. And a Midwest favorite, chocolate peanut butter, for Indianapolis. I also made peanut butter banana and chocolate with vanilla buttercream. I was especially proud of the logos. Melted chocolate piped on waxed paper.
