23 Olympic Sweets that Get Your Head in the Games
Blood. Sweat. Tears… and sugar. You’ve got to get ready for tomorrow morning. It’s the opening ceremonies of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. And for the next 17 days, you’ve got some serious viewing of pure human strength to do. You’re going to need your energy. In the form of confections. Olympic glory never tasted this sweet.
4. Vodka Red Bull Jelly Shots: Just watching speed skating makes us exhausted. We’ll reach for one of these athletically-challenged little morsels to recharge, courtesy of the official Russo-liquor. (via Just A Pinch)
11. Color Appropriate Macarons: You can cut these little lovelies into Olympic rings, but really, we think that’s overkill. Buy or make them in the correct colors, and let them do their duty just as they are. (via Diamonds for Dessert)
14. Chocolate Kremlin: If you’re the sort of overachiever who would casually recreate the Kremlin in chocolate form, we only have one question for you: Why in tarnations did that drive not send you to the Olympics? (via Art Spire)
15. Secret American Flag: Here’s an idea. Invite all your international friends over for a very diplomatic viewing party. Put global flag toothpicks all over the top of the cake. Then, give them a surprise piece of that all-American action. SUCKAS! (via I Am Baker)
