Alice from Beloit, WI (2018 STAR BAKERS)




Beloit, WI

Baking Challenge

Star Baker

How did this baker brighten our summer?

Alice’s kitchen is a place we want to hang out: practical, persevering, plucky. And delicious! Unafraid of daring attempts, be it a Cornish hand pie branded with a flying “W,” a 19th century Old English Spotted Dick — a steamed pudding — with Cream Custard or *drumroll* a gingerbread Lambeau Field, Alice took on summer unthwarted!

Our favorite Wisconsin Twist (pictured)!

Maybe it’s because football season is upon us and we like our Green n’ Gold snazzy, sweet and snack-size, when we took a first look at Alice’s stunning “Packer’s Way Petit Fours” for Patisserie Week we just about fumbled! Go Pack Go!

A choice quote or piece of Star Baker wisdom:

We hope Lambeau Field had a construction crew as indomitable as Alice. Determined to build it out of gingerbread during Biscuits Week, she wrote in with the following frustration and declaration: “It must have been a wild night in the stadium. While the royal icing was setting and supposedly cementing my structure together, I had a snafu and one of my end zones collapsed. I'm now chipping mortar/icing so I can rework and decorate the playing field and all the people. I will not quit until redone!”

How did you do?

I participated in all 10 Great Wisconsin Baking challenges this summer — I’m a Star Baker!
