Cupcakes Pick the Winner


Thank goodness the elections are over! I felt like that's all people were talking about. Of course it is a good thing for people to be involved in our country's future, but this year there were a lot of heated arguments.

I came across an article about people voting for president by cupcakes at Crumbs Bakeshop in New York. The author said that the Obama cupcakes were sold out, while none of the McCain cupcakes had been sold.

I have seen quite a few other places with a similar idea. The Fast Food Maven posted about how 7-11 sells Obama and McCain coffee cups near election time. Supposedly, 7-11 coffee drinkers vote eerily similar to the actual election results. Looks like cupcake lovers and coffee drinkers have something in common...they both knew who would be the next President of the United States, Barack Obama.

The Retail Bakers of America (RBA)host a cookie poll every election year. I think the first one was back in the early eighties. Bakeries across america sell cookies representing the two candidates and the RBA tallies up how many sell. They results are surprisingly accurate! Both by overall percentage and by which state preferred which candidate
