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.

1. Torch Cake: Let’s go to the judges… as we suspected, a perfect 10. (via Daily Mail)

2. Boozy Milkshake: Not cheering for the good old US of A? (Say what?) Change the colors to whatever flag colors you please. (via She Knows)

3. White Russian Cake: This cake has both winter and Russian vibes. Add an Olympic-Rings cake topper, and you’ve got all your bases covered. (via Use Real Butter)

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)

5. Nanaimo Bars: Alright, these are totally leftovers from the Vancouver Olympics. Nanaimo is a regional recipe, but sometimes reliving the good old days is so sweet. (via The Kitchn)

6. Ski Boot Cake: This is the only time you’ll want to take a boot to the mouth. (via Bubulinkata)

7. Gold Medal Cupcakes: Take a big bite. We promise it won’t chip your tooth. (via Pink Martinis and Pearls)

8. Patriotic Strawberries: You really should be getting more fruits in your diet, even if they are covered in sugar and frosting. (via A Small Snippet)

9. Fruit Loop Rings Cupcake: If drawing little rings on individual cupcakes is not the way you want to spend the day, reach for a box of Fruit Loops. (via Little Family Fun)

10. Gold, Silver, Bronze Rolos: Are you going to individually wrap Rolos in medal-colored foil for your friends? Yes, you are. Because you’re a winner like that. (via Makes and Takes)

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)

12. Winter Sport Specific: They take a detour from the typical Olympic look, and the results are gold-medal worthy. (via Royal Icing Diaries)

13. Cupcake Picks: This is a little inspiration for you via the 2012 London games. We know you’re crafting up Kremlin toothpicks as we type. (via Pink Chocolate Cake)

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)

16. International Cake Pops: And here they are, those worldly toothpick flags we were talking about. (via Bird’s Party)

17. Rings Around the Cake: We’ve got your Olympic rings. We’ve got your obligatory nod to gold, silver, and bronze too. (via Carrie’s Cake Design)

18. Monster Cookies: They’re Olympic-rings-colored, and they didn’t even know it. (via Neighbor Food)

19. Diver Cookies: Can someone please add pants, sleeves, and a snowboard to this? It’s incredible. (via Heather Christo)

20. Frozen Cake: There are a few things we like about this cake. It’s vegan. It’s frozen. It’s customizable. Change the colors to show whatever patriotic pride you’re sporting. (via Bitter Sweet)

21. Celebration Cookies: These are an opening-ceremonies-viewing-party must. (via Papery and Cakery)

22. Fruit Cookies: They have fruit, so you could probably get away with eating them for breakfast, which we think you should most definitely do. (via Little Food Junction)

23. Gold and White Russian Cake Pops: You know… because the Olympics are in Russia… and they kind of look like snowballs. (via Brit + Co.)
