The Vancouver 2010 Olympics are well underway, and I am busy as the proverbial Canadian beaver planning for our traditional Olympic wrap-up party. Because Canada is hosting the games this year, I'm planning to go all-out on this event. We have a massive Superbowl-style party every two years on the last day of the olympic games, where we treat dozens of friends & family to good food and drink and the watch the closing ceremonies on our large-screen TV.
And in support of Vancouver and Canada's athletes, I'm doing up a very patriotic dessert platter, with red and white and olympic rings and maple leaves and even Quatchi and Miga.
You can put together a pretty, fun and patriotic dessert party, too, and you don't have to be a pastry chef to do it. Here's what I've got on offer at my party - not all of it is homemade, but all of it is patriotic, sweet and delicious!
HINT: you can find strawberries at this time of year, but frozen ones do nicely in this recipe too!
The price on these compares favourably to any fancy bake shop, they're fresh daily and they are absolutely DELISH.
You can make these yourself with the expert advice of Marian, Canadian blogger at Sweetopia!
So even if you're not having a big party, make sure you do something sweet to support our athletes. I highly recommend the suggestions above!
