Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco
If any of you are attending a Blue election party tonight and care to bring a yummy dessert – here is an idea for an Obama cake! The idea is actually the brainchild of one of my friends (thanks Ameya!) Here is her posting from the 2008 election, on the website, “Yes We Cake!” (Make sure to check out other ideas on their site: here)
The cake is of the official Obama-Biden campaign logo, that was created in 2008 by Sender LLC. According to Sender, the concept of the logo was to incorporate the rising sun and a new day. In their own words, “The sun rising over the horizon evoked a new sense of hope.”
1 cup butter, softened
3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
I topped the cake off, like Ameya did, with Strawberries & Bluberries. The strawberries represent the horizon and the blueberries, the rising sun. Here is a final product.
Happy Election Day!
