For the past two weeks I had been searching for a way to bake something with an Olympic theme. I didn’t know if I wanted to make a cake, cookies, or a pie so I kept holding off. At the beginning of this week I had an idea and instead of thinking about it for too long I just ran with it.
If you’ve been watching the Olympics you’ve seen the Olympic figures or as I call them silhouettes. They are the little images that represent a sport or event and are shown generally at the bottom of the screen. I looked at past Olympic games and each comes up with their own version of the images kind of like a font you would write with. I printed out this year’s silhouettes and traced them in chocolate to act as cupcake toppers. This is the result:
The cupcakes themselves are chocolate Oreo cupcakes with cookies and cream icing. These cupcakes were absolutely delicious…having a soft spot for Oreos I admit I’m biased. Once each cupcake was iced I gave each one a silhouette.
After watching the games and being so proud of all the Americans who have competed and medaled I was very happy to finally bake something Olympic.
