Senate To Consider Cream Puff As State Dessert

6/1/11 – The Wisconsin Senate plans vote during June Dairy Month on making the cream puff the state’s official dessert. The Senate’s Education Committee recently endorsed the new symbol. It was first suggested by Janine Coley’s fourth-grade class at the Clarendon Avenue School in Mukwonago. Their senator, Republican Mary Lazich, introduced the cream puff bill – but only after the kids studied the history of the confection, and had supporters sign petitions on Facebook. If the Senate okays the new symbol, the Assembly will be asked to pass it. Wisconsin has 26 official symbols. Two others were rejected a year ago.
