KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs Kingdom has waited 50 years to make a trip to the Super Bowl and what better way to celebrate than with a little something sweet.

We issued a call to the community for the best and most beautiful Chiefs creations in the metro and you delivered.

In Waldo, McLain’s Bakery sold out of Chief-themed cookies by about 10 a.m. Saturday. Bakers expect the same crowd Sunday.

Marketing Director Kayla Cacy said baked goods have a way of connecting people and she’s proud Chiefs Kingdom is choosing McLain’s cookies and cakes for such a communal event like a Super Bowl watch party.

The Mahomes-themed cake is the most popular according to lead decorator Jennifer Albus. The funfetti cake features a red headband and chocolate frosting to replicate the Chiefs’ quarterback’s signature hairstyle.

McLain’s sold 1,000 of its ever popular cup cookies Saturday, which Cacy says is well above a typical Saturday.

Blue Chip Cookies in Leawood is baking special sugar cookies with an assortment of Chiefs designs.

Jennifer Balsbaugh told 41 Action News they invented the Mahomes and Andy Reid cookies.

“We've got a KC Wolf cookie and just a ton of different designs,” she said.

The shop already has sold thousands.

Water to Wheat Cakery in Overland Park is baking up its best tribute to quarterback Patrick Mahomes, with a cake featuring his signature headband and curls. Owner Aubrey Eitland will be making 50 of these for Super Bowl Sunday.

At Boulevard Pastries in Kansas City, Missouri, the bakers have been working overtime cranking out Chiefs-themed sugar cookies.

From Chiefs logos to depictions of Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Andy Reid, co-owner Loretta Peeler said orders haven’t stopped.

She anticipates working 12 hours or more every night until Sunday to keep up with demand.

“Being that the Chiefs are in it this year, it's been like Christmas. Everyone is excited so everyone really wants to celebrate,” Peeler said, adding that January is normally a slow time of the year.

The bakery on Independence Avenue is closed Sunday, so Peeler anticipated a huge rush Saturday.
