If you thought the results of the Wisconsin primary were crumby, wait until you get a load of this. The voting for the recent Millie's Bakeries poll to find the best bread sculpture of the Milwaukee skyline has officially come to a close. And it's time to get "bready" for a new billboard campaign.
In fact, Milwaukee's favorite piece of bread art has risen to the top.
The winner, which depicts a grainy view of the Burke Brise Soleil against a backdrop of buildings, will be displayed on six large billboards around town between now and October 4, 2016.

Current billboards can be spied on I-794 just south of Oklahoma Ave.; on the west side of Howell Ave. near College Ave; on I-94 East just south of National Ave.; on Greenfield Ave. just west of 107th St.; and on 76th St. just north of Bradley Rd.
According to Millie's, billboard locations will change out every two months.
Where will they appear next? You'll just have to wheat and see.
