Cathy has some great cookies on her flickr, including these:
Great idea to pipe over the cookie, giving the logo more depth. Very cool!
I have a blog, and its address is: laprochainefois.blogspot.com
They were made for a friend who is a diehard Obama fan for her birthday. I’m glad you liked them!
Make sure to check out her stacked cookies on her blog, they’re works of art!

So, I know this is not technically an Obama cake, but it was so rad that I just had to share it:
Check out that amazing White House cake…good thing Obama’s not in there yet!
Have a great Halloween everyone!No comments
FACT: Obama is a nice looking man. FACT: He is even nicer looking when in sugary cookie form:
My friend bought the cookie at Lulu’s Italian-American Bakery, 18526 Union Turnpike, Flushing, NY 11366
Fluffly, colorful, chocolate Obama cupcakes. Delightful! Check out Alicia’s other cupcakes on her flickr, they are really cute.

Part of what is making this blog so much fun for me is how much I’m learning from you guys. Laura from Oregon submitted the following awesome cake, along with some really great insight into the voting process in Oregon. Read on to learn the fun way in which her and her friends stay informed and involved in the Democratic process!
Here in Oregon, we use a vote-by-mail system exclusively. Your ballot arrives in your mailbox, you fill it out and then mail it back or drop it off—that’s it. Sealing an envelope is not nearly as satisfying as pulling a lever, but this system does have its perks—first and foremost of which is that voting can be a social event.
This means that every six months, my friends and I get together to pour over the ballot measures and debate which local candidates to support. The big tickets are easy, but it’s the smaller items that most of us know little about until we sit down with our ballots and research them together. And because this election is, for obvious reasons, far more exciting than most, I decided to bake an Obama cake to celebrate the occasion.
The cake itself is the White Cake recipe in the Joy of Cooking, which I halved because I didn’t have enough eggs. I also used all-purpose flour instead of cake flour, in case anyone is keeping track. For the frosting, I chose the JOC Creamy Icing recipe and boiled some beets to make the red dye. The blue is made up of those icky artificially dyed sprinkly things, but I figured that since all of the other ingredients were either local, natural, organic and/or free range, we’d all survive a little Blue 1 Lake.
(I also served an Obama side salad: arugula, of course, topped with red beets and blue cheese.)
So there you have it: Cake we can believe in.
Thanks for all the great info Laura! You can check out her blog at mydogischelsea.com.3 comments
Cate’s name is almost “Cake”! That makes me love this yummy, sparkly version of Obama’s logo even more.

Danielle kindly shared this photo of a super funny Obama cake that her friend Laura made recently:
I love that with a little ingenuity and some icing, everyone is coming up with such fun and amazing cakes!
My friend Laura P. made it for my First Debate Watch Party…it was chocolate and as smooth as a speech by the man himself. We live in Chicago, IL, and can’t wait to vote for the real Obama on November 4th!

Cute site name, cute cake! I love how she went au natural with the decorations, and the cake is black forest. Could anything be better?
I’m an avid home baker in a family and community of Democrats and really excited about the upcoming election.

Simple, lovely, sunrise Obama cookies. I just adore this logo and Megan certainly did it justice!

You guys, this girl is amazing! If you check out her other Flickr pictures you can see that she has made some really amazing cakes, including the Harry Potter Sorting Hat. For real, if we just had the sorting hat pick who our next president would be, he would totally put Obama in Gryffindor and then we would never have Florida issues, etc. Fact! In other news, I am a dork.
Here is what Sarah had to say:
I work at City Bakery in Asheville, NC, and I made the cake as a donation for a local Obama rally.
Thank you for posting my cake!
Thanks Sarah!2 comments
