In case your appetite wasn’t already completely destroyed by this election, a local pastry chain has created a literal pie-in-your-face reminder that there’s still a few more days left until this painful democratic process is over. Metro Detroit company Achatz Pies is presently slinging partisan odes to the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees.

The pies feature a hand-stenciled chocolate portrait of each candidate, which can be fastened to the top of any flavor on the Achatz menu. However, the standard orders are of course suited to the candidates — an orange pumpkin filled “Trumpkin” pie and an “I’m With Her” French silk pie.

“This year’s election has been intense to say the least, we wanted to bring a sense of light heartedness into the overall picture,” writes Troy store manager and originator of the partisan pie, Courtney Major, in an email to Eater. She adds, “Many customers bring our Presidential Pies to events or their workplace as a potential conversation piece.”

The pies are available up through election day. While they couldn’t verify the company’s specific sales numbers for the presidential pies, a rep for Achatz tells Eater that the Trump stencil is leading “by a landslide.”
