Mukwonago, Wis. (WHBL) - Fourth-graders in Mukwonago want to make the cream puff Wisconsin’s official dessert. And their state senator has agreed to take up their cause. Republican Mary Lazich plans to introduce a bill after meeting with youngsters at the Clarendon Avenue School in Mukwonago. They and their teacher, Janine Coley, have studied the cream puff. They met with the head of the Wisconsin Bakers Association, which sells them every year at the State Fair. And they have an on-line petition and a Facebook page to campaign to make the cream puff Wisconsin’s 27th official state symbol. Coley says her students are prepared to make their case to legislators at a public hearing. And we’ll find out if Republicans are more receptive to approving state symbols than Democrats were in the last session. Bills to make Harley the official state motorcycle, and a cheese bacterium as the official state microbe passed the Assembly last year but they never got considered in the Senate.
