    •  I sent them my original recipe called Brenda’s Delightful Dreamsicle Cake, an easy microwaveable dessert that I invented a year ago! They will probably take my  name off the recipe, *briefly sad* but I won I won I won! *jumping up and down, screaming, hoping the neighbors don't hear me and rush over or call the cops!*

      Update: Not only did they NOT remove my name from the recipe, they interviewed me and added my photo and thoughts about my cake! They changed the name to Orange Dream Supreme Cake. The actual prize was a $200 gift card to Sam’s Club.
