True colors: Washington lawyer-turned-baker Yael Krigman’s red, white and blue cake pops could help temper tough nights of debate watching and election-night returns. The flavors are Birthday, Cookies ’n’ Cream and Red Velvet; the insides are a moist cake-and-frosting mix that’s not too sweet. The pops cost $2.75 each, $39.95 for the 12-pop flag basket and $145 for a 48-pop flag display. To order, call 202-480-9235 or go to Election Day orders must be placed by Nov. 2.
