If you thought Milwaukee was a town made of cheese, beer and bratwurst, you just might be wrong.
In fact, in this particular case, the city is made of bread.
Three Milwaukee skylines depicting landmarks like the beloved (and closed) Mitchell Park Domes and the Milwaukee Art Museum have been created from bread as part of a project promoting Aunt Millie's Bakeries arrival in Milwaukee.
The family-owned Indiana-based company, which specializes in bread and other bakery products, recently expanded their distribution to include Roundy’s stores in Wisconsin. And, in an effort to show their "loaf" for the new market, they’ve launched a billboard project featuring sculptures of Milwaukee’s skyline created solely from bread.
Three teams worked on the bread sculptures, which will be competing for your vote through the end of March.

The winning skyline will be used in a billboard campaign in Milwaukee beginning in April.
Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club.
When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
