So my team made ugly cake for the bake off. Except it wasn't called ugly cake, because Paula Deen tried to claim it as her own "gooey butter cake" recipe or something. Weak. So when I was putting it all together, I made it as smooth as possible, in an attempt to win appearance points. Also, we sprinkled powdered sugar on the top for this goal. This was futile, as seen by the pictures of the other desderts. And it made it taste not as good, in my opinion.
Moral of the Story: Never compromise ugly cake's looks in order to impress. The appeal is the ugliness followed by the amazing taste.
