Marie from Sun Prairie, WI (2018 STAR BAKERS)




Sun Prairie, WI

Baking Challenge

Star Baker

How did this baker brighten our summer?

Can we say it? Booze. Marie paired baked treats and booze like Bonnie & Clyde.

Our favorite Wisconsin Twist (pictured)!

A Supper Club Strudel, you say? For Puddings Week, Marie reimagined the classic cocktail of Wisconsin — the Brandy Old Fashioned — in strudel form delivering her sweet and gorgeous “Very Cherry Old Fashioned Strudel.” Her kids pitched in by hand-pitting the cherries and she added orange zest and bitters flavor to the cream cheese. We hope to see this on the dessert menus of our favorite Sconnie supper club haunts!

A choice quote or piece of Star Baker wisdom:

Brandy and bourbon make baking a breeze!

How did you do?
