Le Dolci Cupcakes and Cakes in Toronto

Things like cupcakes and champagne make me realize that although, as a race, we’re sometimes destructive, self-centered and even all out evil, we’re still pretty great to have created such wonderful items for consumption. Not only do champagne and cupcakes taste good, but they look good and just knowing they’re out there in the world can bring a smile to a lot of people’s faces!

With the Olympics just a week away, it’s time to rev up your baking skills to properly celebrate, or at least get your orders in stat for cupcakes and other sweet treats that will take your Olympics party to the next level of awesome. I’m assuming people have Olympics parties, right?

Our friends Rachel Kramer Bussel and Nichelle Stephens of the bog Cupcakes Take the Cake, put together a fine selection of these Olympics-inspired cupcakes which you can check out by clicking on the link above, or you can just take a gander of our favorites below.

From the blog, Sweetology, which is also kind enough to provide step by step directions on how to make these glorious little treats on your own:

Yumtastics made these cake pops. I admire anyone who has the time and necessary touch to make such a thing:

And since it’s not the Olympics if some big company isn’t profiting from it, Amazon has this Meri Meri Going for Gold cupcake decorating kit for those of you who want to take the easy route:
