The first 2012 U.S. election cupcake: Jody Hall of Cupcake Royale shows off an Obama cupcake

In 2008, we featured numerous candidate cupcakes across the political spectrum running up to the U.S. election (we are a nonpartisan blog dedicated to showcasing the wide world of cupcakes), and plan to do so again this year. Making candidate or election cupcakes? Send them to us to consider at cupcakestakethecake at with "Election" in the subject line and details, price, URL, and any other relevant information or, as always, your best bet for sharing photos with us and our readers is by adding them to our over 8,600 person strong Flickr cupcake photo pool.

This is, I believe, the first U.S. election cupcake we've seen in 2012. It features Seattle's Cupcake Royale owner Jody Hall with an Obama logo cupcake, via their Facebook page. No word on yet on whether they will be for sale in their bakeries, but we'll keep you posted! Visit for more information.
