When this week’s travel theme from Ailsa’s blog Where’s My Backpack? appeared in my mailbox, I immediately thought of a fundraiser for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library called The Great Cake Bake, celebrating books and the host of the event: the University of Tennessee. With that in mind, I searched my photo bank, and here are three creations made specifically for Big Orange Country.
First, how ’bout a little Big Orange pre-game competition? With a cake shaped like a corn hole board (complete with little white pillows of edible frosting), eating this cake might be more fun than playing the game.
Second, there’s nothing more iconic in Big Orange Country than Neyland Stadium. And, for a loyal fan, sitting in the upper deck on a crisp fall afternoon cheering on the Vols — su-weet!
Finally, Ailsa’s challenge this week coincides with a much-anticipated game with one of the Vols’ biggest rivalries: the Florida gators.
So, what would it be like for UT to win the game against Florida today (September 16)? Pure sugar!
