How to Play:
At the very beginning of the party, give the bride an apron to wear. Tell her she is making the dessert for the guests at her party. She needs to make a simple white cake, without using a recipe. Have her work at the table with the ingredients. The crowd may not help her. When the batter is done, pour it in the cake pan and ask her what temperature to cook it on and for what length of time. Then put the cake in the oven while the rest of the party continues.

When the timer goes off, remove from oven and serve to guest. It is best to also have a "back up" dessert available, just in case...
