Here on the Pud-Hog Blog, I like to keep things apolitical. After all, there are few subjects worse than politics to discuss over Tea and Cake (religion and pus being two of the other big no-nos that spring to mind).
Still, you’d have to have been in a pothole in Timbuktu not to have heard the news from the States today: Barack Obama is back in the White House, secure for the next four years.
This wouldn’t fall into my sweet-toothed remit were it not for a website my cousin shared with me this morning. Its name? Yes We Cake*.
With pages and pages of photos of pro-Barack baking, it won’t appeal to everyone (lovers of Romney might find it particularly sickly), but I have to admit it got my juices going.
Although the website is now out of date – the last post is from 2010 – for those of you celebrating this evening, there’s a few interesting ideas (including a Caramel Apple Pie which certainly gets my vote).
As for the commiserators (wherever you may be), what better way to show your opposition than by consuming Obama’s face or a Democrat flag? Your insides can do what your votes could not: turn that party to poop.
See, unlike the presidential contest, political Cakes are a win-win type of solution: something to sweeten the victory, and the defeat – not to mention uniting all those with a stomach.
You know it’s true, Ogglers: Cakes cross boundaries.
So what if your favourite guy (or gal) didn’t end up being elected? Don’t get sad: get baking.
When your goodies are ready to eat, sit down, stuff your face and relax… then work out the best way to emigrate.
Just pick somewhere with a decent bakery, and all will be right with the world.
