Obama Cupcakes Big Seller for Inauguration

January 13, 2009

Obama Cupcakes from Fluffy Thoughts Bakery

Story from the Washingtonian:

Obama Cupcakes are hot again. The Fluffy Thoughts Bakery in McLean, Virginia has been baking treats with Obama’s likeness since before the election, when she sold cupcakes to raise funds for his campaign. Now, with the election in the bag, she’s selling Obama cupcakes and cake toppers to inauguration-crazed crowds looking for a celebratory sugar rush.

A few inaugural-ball hosts have contacted Stuckey to make desserts for their events, and she’s taken tons of orders from private individuals hosting house parties to celebrate the inauguration.

Her most popular item is the Obama cupcake ($4). Using Shepard Fairey’s iconic Obama image, Stuckey and her small team of two create each Obama face out of white chocolate screened with the image.

According to the interview, Stuckey will take inauguration orders through Friday, but after that, she won’t be answering her phone. “We’ll be working around the clock this weekend, piping chocolate all night long,” she says. “I probably won’t want to see the stuff for at least a month afterward.”
