Here is an excerpt from
THE ANNUAL CHRISTMAS FRUIT CAKE BAKE-OFF GALA
“Good evening. This is Cheri Bing, reporting for WHIP, in Quince Valley, Florida. I am standing outside the Capitol Convention Building, where we are expecting much to be happening here tonight. The Annual Christmas Cake Bake-Off and the State Christmas Gala are being held in the same hall because of a scheduling dilemma.
“Tables are loaded with exquisite displays of culinary creations: a Black Forest Cherry Cake, a Festive Eggnog Cake, an Orange Marmalade Noel Cake, a Chocolate Yule Log, a Jewel Fruit Cake, and even a Coconut Cookie Tree. Band music is filling the air, and dignitaries are arriving by limousines. What a grand event this will be! . . .

The evening is filled with dancing and music and lots of delicious cakes. See what happens when the Annual Cake Bake-Off and the fancy State Christmas Gala are held at the same place.
