Wis. Senate names cream puff official dessert

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Senate has passed a bill that would designate a state fair staple as Wisconsin's official dessert.

Fourth-graders from Mukwonago have been pushing lawmakers to anoint the cream puff as Wisconsin's favorite treat. They convinced Republican Sen. Mary Lazich to introduce a bill. The Senate passed the proposal on a voice vote on Wednesday. It goes next to the state Assembly.

Lawmakers have created more than two dozen official state symbols already, although attempts to make Harley-Davidson the official state motorcycle and recognize a microbe that turns milk into cheese fizzled last session.
