More from Huffington Post:
"Pay It Forward' is, according to a media release, a "cupcake-based anti-partisanship campaign based on Congressional cupcake gift shipments between parties."And from Washington City Paper's Young & Hungry blog:
From now until election day, Sprinkles' Georgetown shop is offering to send $40 worth of cupcakes, for free, from one Congressional office to another, so long as the sender and the recipient belong to different political parties.
The promotion was inspired by last year’s Congressional Cupcake Wars, in which seven teams of Hill staffers competed in various baking challenges to win bragging rights and an edible trophy. Sprinkles founder Candace Nelson judged the competition last July and came up with the idea of the Pay It Forward campaign, saying she hopes “to inspire a spirit of bipartisanship on Capitol Hill.”
