Amuse Bouche: Cake For America

Even though the pace has slowed down a teeny tiny amount, we’re still inordinately excited about the 2008 presidential primary season. Seeing as our great state voted over a week ago, we’re assuming you already made your choice and, if for some unfathomable reason you haven’t, there are plenty of great sites that will help you make an informed decision about who to support, based on a substantive analysis of issue positions. We, however, are not here for issue positions. We’re here for baked goods. Below, a rundown of some candidate-inspired baked goods. Mmmm….political! In alphabetical order, we have…

Hillary Clinton: Admittedly, the below cake doesn’t say have Senator Clinton’s name on it, but the caption does say “Hillary in 2008!” It also notes that she does not advocate the burning of even imaginary flags.

Mike Huckabee: No baked goods for Governor Huckabee on Flickr…maybe because of his famous diet?

John McCain: Maybe Republicans just aren’t that into baking. The closest thing we could find to a McCain baked good on Flickr was the below photo of the Senator and President Bush getting ready to chow down on some cake on August 29, 2005. It’s not like there was anything else going on that day.

Barack Obama: Not only did someone bake the gorgeous cake below for a house party for the Senator from Illinois, but the campaign’s official Flickr account has a picture of his birthday cake!
