I was just offered a chance to get my cakes and cookies brought outside of family and friends. It for a fund raiser that my nephews school is having on Election Day. I donate the cake and they sell by the slice and keep the money. However, other than flags and Red, White & Blue I am have no cute ideas. Any suggestions on cake designs for and Election theme?
Donkey & Elephant!
Will there also be a school election that day?
How about an election ballot? Here in MO we still use the little booklets. You could do a booklets w/the candidates names and or however their ballots will look.
A sheet cake with a cute "Election 2007" (like the ones that they use on the news) would also work - and a sheet cake would be much easier for them to cut and sell.
How about a drop-in-the-slip-of-paper ballot box? Maybe decorate the sides with the stars and stripes and have a fondant/gumpaste "ballot" sticking out of the "drop slot"?
I like a simple ballot box.. maybe on the front it can say VOTES and one each side you can put a donkey and then an elephant, so like one side has the donkey and one side has the elephant.
Thanks you all those were great ideas. I can't wait to start baking.
