Do you remember cakewalks? If you don't, here's a quick refresher on how to play the game: music plays while people walk along a numbered path and when the music stops, a number is drawn — the person standing on that number wins a cake.
This time-honored tradition of carnivals, fundraisers and holiday parties seems to be making a comeback just in time for Christmas. I've been "invited" to bake cakes for a few cakewalks already.
There's a modern twist, though. Today's bakers don't have to make traditional cakes. We can make cupcakes, pies, cakes and other goodies. The are only 3 rules:
- The prizes must be baked.
- They have to be super sweet.
- And sure-fire diet-busters.
Well, I made up rule #3. But that's what I'm shooting for with my
goodies. No need to fret about your diet, though. The best thing about the classic cakewalk? You walk off lots of calories just trying to win a tasty prize!
