We came across these cool presidential candidate likenesses on stenciled iced cookies while at the market last night. Who could resist the urge to celebrate the culmination of two long years of campaigning after laying eyes on these spangled shortbread cookies! Little Rae's Bakery in south Seattle creates and markets some of the most fun and really tasty holiday cookies imaginable (and I think they ship to anywhere). In this "Patriot Pack" complete with a label that urges us to VOTE were red, white, and blue stars and the airbrushed icing portraits of Barack Obama and John McCain in appropriate colors and on the appropriate sides of the box. When I set the box down on the kitchen table where our map of Paris is under glass, McCain was residing on the Right Bank and Obama on the Left ;^). Here is a shot I took while we were sampling them with some milk after dinner. We voted YES, they ARE that good. Happy Election Day to those in the USA!
