So we attended a secular community Easter Egg hunt complete with a cakewalk.

For those who haven't heard of it before, a cakewalk is an event where people donate cakes. Everyone pays a nominal sum to enter. There are lots of numbers on the floor. Everyone walks around the numbers (in a circle) until the music stops.

My two had a great time. My daughter was the first person to win. She went to the table and selected her cake.

It was not the cake I would have selected! There was so much neon frosting on this cake! Clearly, someone had been watching the food network show Ace of Cakes, because this cake had it all. Bright yellow, orange, pink, green, blue, with colored sprinkles.

Afterward, the twelve and thirteen year olds who had decorated the cake came up to us and mentioned that it was their cake. And how proud they were my daughter had selected their cake first.

It was truly a cake that someone under the age of 18 would create. And, it was yummy as well - despite all the frosting!
