Adriana Shoning’s blue ribbon winner in the Ugly Cake Contest at the Iowa
State Fair, a competition for teens. Animal lovers like me needn’t stew…
better this happened to a cake (happily still edible) than a real critter.
And what a smart strategy for keeping a teen busy – encourage yours to get
in the kitchen and bake up something ugly for July 4th festivities. Hey, any
idea what native Iowan species this might be?
