In just a very little about a thirty day period, we are going to vote for the 45th President of the United States—a incredibly critical event that will have an effect on a lot of life in tangible strategies. It is really been a notably heated calendar year of campaigning—if you tuned in for the first presidential debate, or read the news any given day, you possibly have an ulcer now because of this—and the heat is only rising the closer we get to November eighth. Lies mount, suspicions rise, rumors fly. What we need to have these times, besides a capable president, is a respite: a chortle, a hug, something unbearably sweet.

Us? We’re building cookies.

If you are seriously sensation the crimson and blue, our new 2016 election-themed set of cookie cutters is in this article to split the ice (or spark some kindly controversy) at your future election occasion. There are Donalds—complete with swoopy hairdos—and Hillarys, as well. Elephants, Donkeys, flags, and U.S.A. maps round out the set.

We’ve even got the fantastic sugar cookie recipe and royal icing combo to use (it can be what our pro baker-in-home Erin McDowell takes advantage of as her go-to for decorating any cookie-cutter cookies):
