I actually don’t know who made this cake or instructions but I had to share it.

It’s so realistic looking and I really hope those are rice krispies and not made to taste like actual chicken.

Add in buttermilk all at once and stir. Dough will be sticky. Turn out onto a well floured surface, Roll dough out to about 1 inch thickness. Cut with dough cutter, or cup well floured. put biscuits on to a pan sprayed with non stick spray. After cutting biscuits, rest in pan for 15 minutes before cooking.

Skydeck Chicago Review: Make Memories to Cherish!

skydeck-review2

I received complimentary passes and a tour of the Skydeck Chicago review for this post. All opinions and thoughts are honest and 100% all my own.

I am not afraid of heights, but the Willis Tower can seem a bit intimidating at 1,450 feet and 110 stories tall! Mr. Randal Stancik was extremely gracious and gave us an informative tour of the Willis Tower, and of course the 103rd floor where the Skydeck is located! We also watched a short movie plus it offered lots of great facts about Chicago and the Skydeck.

skydeck-review4As you can see in the picture the Willis Tower is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. As you walk around you can read lots of fun facts about the building.

skydeck-review7This is where the fun really starts at the 103rd floor!

The elevator trip is also fun as it took us less than 3 minutes to reach the 103rd floor. As you are riding, you get to see comparisons such as you are now higher than the Empire State Building, the Great Pyramid, and more! It Is Only 2,232 Steps To Get To The Top Of SkyDeck! I prefer to take the elevator but it would make a fantastic cardio workout.

skydeck-review5The ledge is constructed of three layers of half-inch thick glass laminated and tempered for durability. This ledge is not going anywhere.

skydeck-review6Check out these fabulous views! WOW!

It is just breathtaking and something you really have to experience! I can’t wait to go back again and this time with my family.¬† As you can see the Ledge offers spectacular views spanning up to four states that you will never forget.

skydeck-review1Our soveniur picture we took with me and my blogging buddies at the Skydeck Ledge. This is a memory I will never forget.
