Soccer Field Cake : Frost a 13-by-9-inch single-layer cake with green frosting. Pipe a line of white frosting around the edge of the cake to represent the sidelines. Then pipe a center line, a center circle and boxes on both ends of the cake to complete the field. Soccer-themed flag picks (which you can find at most party supply stores) make the cake extra festive.
Team Sweets : While chips, dips and everything cheese-covered might suit your typical game-day buffet, there's something about the enterprising spirit of the Olympics that calls for a more special spread. These desserts are unmistakably on-theme, honoring the sports and symbols we typically see only every four years. But they also boast crowd-pleasing flavors and stay unfussy in their construction. In other words, they earn a gold medal for sure.
Synchronized Swimming Gelatin Pool : Prepare three 3-ounce boxes of blue gelatin according to the package directions. Pour it into a clear 13-by-9-inch glass dish and refrigerate until set. Arrange graham cracker bears on top of the gelatin in a circle to make a team of synchronized swimmers. Line the pan with candy necklaces to create a buoy rope, and hang a mini bunting between skewers for extra decor. Now, who do we petition to make bear synchronized swimming an official Olympic sport?
