Taking a bite out of the Donald!

Posted on Updated on


At the KAK factory we have been watching the presidential campaigns with our egg whisks in one hand and sugar beater in the other. We only know how to make sense of this election doing what we do best: making some kick ass kakes. To get ready for November, we made a kick ass Hillary kake… and because we know he hates being left out of things, we made a kick ass Donald kake too. You’d actually be surprised at how easy it was to replicate his silky golden locks. What a bit of spun sugar can do!

Watch Cory Mccluskey at Fox 10 News take a bite out of the Donald’s hair here:
