political baking.

I made these for an election 'party' a couple of friends and I had on Thursday night. we had coloured food, drink, balloons, and dress. we played mario kart on the Wii, and it said 'victory to the red team', which we thought might be a prediction, but now I'm not so sure. believe me when I say that this was the best looking food by far that evening, and I'm not just blowing my own trumpet.
I used the hummingbird bakery vanilla cupcake and frosting recipes, I can't believe how much better they were than anything I've ever baked before, just because of a different recipe. I was only given the book for my birthday, (I'm a little late to the hummingbird bandwagon) and I;d made the brownies the night before. flippin heck they are GOOD.

  1. These look awesome! We had an election party too, but nothing as pretty as this. Glad you've discovered Hummingbird, think their recipe book really is fabulous, so straightforward and the results are pretty much guaranteed to be good. Happy future baking!
