Be sure to refrigerate Margaret's Prize Winning Cake before serving.
Margaret was a sweet lady; for Christmas one year, she made this prize cake for our family. She was a student at the magic pottery shop where I taught for awhile. She was about 75-78 at the time (25 years ago).
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
