Obama Cake

We are on the verge of selecting our next president of the United States – so whoever you are backing, first and foremost – please go vote!!

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.”

I used the one-bowl chocolate cake recipe that I posted about a few days ago (post) and the recipe below, for Vanilla Buttercream Frosting [via food.com].

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened
3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1.  In a bowl, combine butter, sugar, and salt.  Beat until blended.
  2. Add the milk and vanilla and beat for an additional 3-5 minutes or until smooth.

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!
