Seriously? This cake must’ve been laced with crack. Well, there’s always 2012. My mother and my husband, and all of our family and friends who have enjoyed the cake testing rounds while I shook out the cobwebs for the last three years are already looking forward to next year’s preparation.

As for this year: am I bitter about the loss? Nah. But I am sending mental calories galore to the hips of the testers. 🙂
