A Malaysian baker took the Bernie Sanders chair meme to a whole new level by featuring the politician on her signature KumQuat Roll.
The piece of art was created by Keem Ooi, a 50-year-old self-taught baker who became an online sensation last year after posting Instagram photos of her Animal Crossing masterpiece, according to Mashable.

“Looks like Bernie Sanders couldn’t help himself to my signature KumQuat Roll,” Ooi wrote for her latest caption.
When Ooi was a young girl, she would watch her mother bake. She eventually became passionate about baking after she joined a Facebook group a few years ago.
Ooi shared with SAYS that the online group would announce a theme every two weeks, and members could submit photos of their creations.
Unfortunately, Ooi’s Bernie Sanders roll is not for sale, but she does offer lessons to anyone who would like to learn how to bake at The Upper Kitchen, a baking, cooking and hobby studio in Malaysia.
Prices range from 350 Malaysian Ringgit ($86) to 480 Malaysian Ringgit ($118) per session.
