Nastiest Kwanzaa Cake Ever

I love Cakewrecks. I'm totally addicted. This week, they've highlighted a totally hideous Kwanzaa cake by Sandra Lee made with pre-made angel food cake, store-bought icing, and, obviously, corn nuts. Well, Sandra calls them "acorns" but the recipe calls for corn nuts. It also calls for popcorn and pumpkin seeds. It would appear the hate mail about this cake was so numerous that Food Network pulled the recipe, but with a little digging you can still find it floating around. In case you have always dreamed of a corn nut-cake hybrid, the recipe is at the bottom of the post.

The hate sites are pretty numerous, too. Here are a couple:
The Kwanzaa Cake and Other Edible Hate Crimes
Nobody Does it Like Sandra Lee
Random Access Babble

And, the infamous recipe:

1 (10 to 12-ounce) purchased angel food cake
1 container (16 ounce) vanilla frosting
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (21-ounce) container apple filling or topping
1 (1.7-ounce) package corn nuts
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted
1/2 cup popped popcorn

Special Equipment:
Kwanzaa candles

Using a serrated knife, cut cake horizontally into 2 layers. Place bottom cake layer, cut side up, on a serving platter. Mix frosting, cocoa powder, vanilla, and cinnamon in large bowl until combined. Spread about 1/4 of the frosting over top of cake layer on platter. Top with second cake layer, cut side down. Spread remaining frosting evenly over top and sides of cake to coat completely. Spoon apple pie filling into hole in center of cake. Place candles atop cake. Sprinkle top of cake with some corn nuts, pumpkin seeds, and popcorn. Sprinkle remaining corn nuts and pumpkin seeds around base of cake.

Sorry, Sasuke, but I have the absolute right to hate anyone I choose. Like people who can't put a sentence together to save their souls and then have the nerve to call other people morons.

To clear up a few of your rather juvenile misconceptions: Sandra Lee cannot cook for shit, and her boobs are beautiful only if you live on a planet where the prettiest thing imaginable is a tube sock stuffed with quarters.

If you don't see what's wrong with mixing cocoa and cinnamon with store bought icing, plopping canned pie filling into the middle of a store bought cake with said icing, or garnishing that cake with super salty corn nuts, I'd say you're the one with the problem. I'm not jealous of Sandra Lee, and I don't hate her either. I just find it really fascinating that someone who does nothing but combine store bought ingredients has her own hilarious show. I guess I'm happy that she does, though, because I have gotten so many laughs from said show.

As you mentioned, she's a pretty lady with a rich husband (although I have to say, her boobs are okay at best). She doesn't really need an internet white night who goes by the moniker of a villainous Naruto character to defend her honor.

All of you guys "Sandra Lee" haters are retarded, I didn't see anything wrong with that "Kwanza" cake recipe, nobody always have the time to make full blown Kwanza cake, so if she tried to make it easier by using store brought ingredients ... I didn't see anything wrong with it.

I know, there must be a guy that being rejected by her, or a girl that jealous of her, and started these whole hate Sandra Lee thingy ... and, the all the sheep just start jumping into ... retarded followers.

Yes, she is pretty, and have beautiful boobs, yes she is famous, and also married to a rich guy, but that doesn't mean to give you right to hate her.

It's because she blows the network's manager, or knows where the bodies are buried. For no other reason should this abboration be publicly displayed anywhere except in some dimly lit basement of a fetishist club, sandwiched between Two Women and a Cup and Dogs Gone Wild.

I thought that it was a joke from some youtube user when I first saw this; then I google "Sandra Lee" and realised that it is real! Well... as for "real"... This is an abomination. I am sure that she doesn't go anywhere near the crap that she's dishing out, so why should anyone else? Seems like she's very well-known in America, but... WHY WHY WHY???
