Princess Peep of the Milky Way
Just want to give a shout out to one my favorite peeps – Carrie – who has crafted a tasty little diorama featuring Princess Peep of the Milky Way at the Minnesota State Fair. For those of you who had not had the pleasure of attending The Great Get Together, we elect several princesses whose likenesses are then carved out of giant cubes of butter. Yes, that’s right, their heads are carved out of butter. Each day one princess poses in an air conditioned rotating glass display while an artist releases her image from butter.
Last year Princess Kay of the Milky Way was a young woman who was the third in her family to be carved in butter. Her mom has all three butterheads in freezers in the garage.
Carrie has brought the scene to life for you, complete with fair goers with pickle-hats and food-on-a-stick. If you MUST vote for someone other than me, I guess vote for her. But you really should vote for me.
