    I have a Harvest festival at church tonight for all the kids. I made this simple cake for the cake walk using 2 bundt cakes and 2 cupcakes and 4 cups of buttercream icing!

    Our school fall carnival had a cake walk and a pie walk every year. They put the cakes and pies on big tables in the library and then in a classroom nearby, they would take masking tape and mark off squares on the floor and number them with tape - in a big square around the room - desks pushed to the sides. Maybe 20 or 25 squares. They would sell tickets outside of the room and to get to participate in the "walk" you had to give the supervisor a ticket. They would start some music and you would walk from square to square and then the music would stop and you would have to be on one square only. They would pull a number from a basket and that corresponding number on the floor would win a cake. You would then go across the hall to the library and pick out you cake (or pie). If there was nobody standing in the square that was called, then they would call another number. The cakes and pies are made by the parents/grandparents, etc. of children in the school - points were given and the class that made the most points won something big. The cakes were made and put on big squares of cardboard covered with aluminum foil and then covered with plastic wrap - so nothing had to be brought back to the owner. At the end of the evening, close to the coronation of the king and queen, if there were quite a few cakes/pies left, they would start calling several numbers per "walk". They had lots of games in the different classrooms, each game costing a ticket. They had a country store (baked goods for sale), craft store (homemade crafts for sale) and all kinds of things for sale, all donated by the parents, community. They also raffled off a gift card to WalMart - $500 I think - and the kids took home raffle tickets to sell to their parents, neighbors, friends, etc. They usually made about $10,000 per carnival - sponsored by the PTA.
