Democracy cake stalls dial up the sass at polling booths

FROM the Scone Morrisons to the Richard Di Nutella cakes, and Bananaby Bread, Democracy Cake Stalls could just be the next best thing about voting after the beloved snag.

While the democracy sausage has got us out of bed and to the polling booths for years, the bakers and slice makers upped the ante this year with everything from high-end cupcakes to humble chocolate crackles ensuring no voter left sugar-deprived.

At Camdenville Public School, the cakes were extra spicy with voters lining up for tongue-in-cheek treats including the Au Pear Tarts (sponsored by Peter Dutton), Tanya Plibiscuits, Bill Shortbreads and some delicious looking Clive Palmiers.

Up the road at Stanmore Public, the Fudgie Smugglers, Caramel Electoral Rolls and Bananaby Joyce Cakes were equally in hot demand, a perfect chaser to a sausage sanga.

The cake stalls were so good, they even generated their own hashtag, #DemocracyCakeStall, although the savoury #democracysausage and #democracybacon reigned supreme.

Regardless, for Australians it was a win-win. A nation simply can't decide on an empty stomach.
