What do the robin, the violet and the cream puff have in common? Currently, nothing, but if a group of Mukwonago fourth graders get their way, the cream puff will become the official Wisconsin state dessert and join the list of Wisconsin state symbols like the robin (state bird) and the violet (state flower.)

The students have the support of state Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) who plans to introduce the bill to the legislature. They also have strong support from the Wisconsin Baker's Association.

If you are a fan of the cream puff and would like to see it become the official sweet treat of the state, go to this Facebook page and "like" it. I'm more in favor of desserts on a stick myself, but cream puffs are tasty, too.
