There’s no denying it: Penn State fans love their football team. A local bakery takes the love affair to another level. With spring here and Easter just around the corner, Flour Box Bakery, located in Bellefonte, Pa., decorated 112 peeps to best resemble gameday at Beaver Stadium – err, Bunny Stadium, as they call it. The peeps include Coach Bill O’Peep, players decked out in simple uniforms, fans and band members. The best part: the stadium is made entirely out of cookie. Now, that’s a tasty treat. See all 12 peep pictures.
