Today marks exactly two weeks until Election Day. There is no question this has been the craziest election season of my lifetime, and that's saying a lot. Remember Ross Perot?
New Hampshire-based company GourmetGiftBaskets.com is putting a sweet spin on an otherwise unsavory campaign season with presidential candidate cookie cakes. Each cookie is made with a 10-inch sugar cookie and then decorated with the bust of either Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or Gary Johnson.
The #ImWithHer cookie features HRC in a blush pink suit jacket and a pair of pearls, surrounded by Democrat blue icing.
The Donald is sporting his usual coif and a scowl inside a Republican red border.
Libertarian Gary Johnson sports a blue tie and some salt and pepper squiggles in his hair.
I know many of you have been hosting debate viewing parties, so I can only imagine how many of you are planning election night parties. What better way to celebrate a victory (or relish a defeat) than with a giant cookie cake?
For the last debate I ordered a Donald Trump cookie. When it arrived, I was shocked to see how much the design actually looked like him.
The sugar cookie smell wafted from the box right to my nostrils!
I found it ever so appropriate that the Donald's face got a little bit messed up in transit.
The reason I decided to order the Donald (rather than Hillary) is because I thought it would be fun to cut him up. Each time he said something heinous in the debate, we could slice off another piece!
Whether you want a cookie with the face of the candidate you are supporting or you prefer to take my approach and destroy the enemy one bite at a time, there is no denying these cookies are a hilarious addition to any election night gathering.
