|Kwanzaa Cake. Tastes better if you're drunk.|
Today, people around the world celebrate Kwanzaa with fruit, traditional Kente clothing, art, stories, and...Kwanzaa cake.
Well, actually one person in the history of the world celebrates Kwanzaa with cake. It's Sandra Lee, the slightly drunk and/or psychotic star of Semi-Homemade, the television show about heating up T.V. dinners.
In the most talked about show of our time, Sandra Lee makes a "harvest cake" in celebration of Kwanzaa. The mess entitles cutting an angel food cake in two, shoving icing and pie filling into it, and placing a hell of a lot of candles onto this monstrosity.
Since this cake will go down in the "that's a shitty idea" hall of fame, we decided to recreate the recipe and bring it to our office Christmas pot luck lunch. Here's what happened.
