Go wild with cream cheese, black olives and Bac-os!
If the weather has you officially homebound today, why not let your culinary creativity soar? With the countdown to Super Bowl Sunday ticking away, it's a great time to plan a buffet of visually stimulating snack creations that trump the traditional (like Jonathan Bender's chili-cheese dip) or the too exotic (Spicy White Castle Dip).

A couple of days ago, seriouseats.com offered up an elaborate recipe for an edible sports stadium with a playing field of fresh green guacamole. In honor of today's Kansas City snowstorm, Fat City offers an even more timely culinary construction.

The bettycrocker.com website features this recipe for an edible igloo surrounded by tasty little black-olive penguins. It only takes six minutes or so to construct, and it feeds 18! Slightly more time-consuming but much more showy is Martha Stewart's festive Igloo Cake. And if the kids are home from school today and getting on your last nerve: Hand them a box of sugar cubes and a paste of egg whites and powdered sugar, and let them create their own damn igloo (or edible snowmen) while you go out and shovel real snow off the car.
