The Republican vs. Democrat cupcakes will sell through Nov. 5 for $1.49 each. The retailer will then tally and announce how many of each were sold in its 11 stores.

Both versions of the cupcakes have a vanilla cake base. The Republican cupcake features red icing with a red, white and blue elephant; the Democrat cupcake has blue icing with a red, white and blue donkey.
