One year, I won a cake walk at a Halloween festival. Has anyone ever participated in one? It's like musical chairs, and the last one standing wins a cake. It is loads of fun if most people bring a cake/ baked goody to give away, then there is a variety to choose from. You can play over and over, and it ends up being more of a cake swap. Either way is fun and tasty!
