2012: Gag cake. There is a funny story behind this one. While I was making the Lord of the Rings cake, my father-in-law called. He was going to stop over and when my husband told him I was working on a cake, he said (over speaker phone) "She'd better have a cake for me when I get there! *laughing*" So I whipped out a box of cake mix and popped a 9x13 in the oven, :-) Kind of funny what 5 minutes, sprinkles, and a decorating bag will get you. ^_^
And of course when he, my mother-in-law, and 2 of their friends got here everyone was cracking up that I had actually made a cake for him. :-D And boy was it tasty!
