Go Bears!

So it’s been quite a while since I’ve last posted… I’ve been a little busy! Now that I’m a wife, and the wedding is behind us, I can see a lot more baking in my future!

My husband is a big sports fan…especially football. I thought that he’d really like it if I made something that was in the football spirit. Using his two favorite colors, blue and orange, I made cookies and cupcakes to eat during the big game this past weekend.

And please- don’t be confused- this is not Illini blue and orange… this is Bears blue and orange. Being a Missouri Tiger, I cannot support the Illini. Especially because Missouri beat Illinois in football the day before we got married!

I couldn’t get those perfect chocolate chip cookies out of my mind, so I made them again. This time I used blue and orange M & M’s instead of chocolate chips.

And of course I ended up with extra M & M’s. I have a few options… maybe yellow and brown Thanksgiving cookies? Red and Green Christmas cookies? That is, only if these leftovers last that long in our apartment….

I also made blue and orange cupcakes! Blue cake with orange frosting and orange cake with blue frosting. Turns out that learning about primary colors and the color wheel in elementary school actually helped me through this process. I had blue food coloring, but had to make the orange. Red + Yellow= Orange!

And the Bears won! Woo-hoo!!!!!!!

  1. These look awesome! I can’t believe you picked out the orange and blue M&M’s, what a dedicated wife you are. Have any left? 🙂

    Sheri can’t take all of the credit here, as I actually helped her pick out the blue and orange M&M’s!!!

    The cookies were fantastic, although a bit crunchy. I was expecting them to be softer, but they still tasted great. The cupcakes were also very tasty. Next time, one suggestion will be to put a blue “B” on top of the orange frosted cupcake and vice versa. Or even better, put a big “I” for the Illini!!!!

    Great job! You’ve attempted so much more than I ever did when I first got married. It’s quite impressive. And such wonderful success you’ve had! Keep up the good work!
