Team Austin: sweet and meaty, with a touch of spice.
Team Ryman: inventive, flavorful pinchers.
This was the outcome of the crab-fest. No winners. Or can we fairly say that everyone won? I hear a faint “no.” Crab people can be pretty brutal.
Maddy Lu did a custom order for this event.
A cake for a crab-fest? Of course!
Mr. Crab was close to five pounds initially. I had to slim him down by hollowing out his insides. Poor guy. But a five-pounder on top of four layers of moist cake in one hundred degree weather? No.
He took it well and did his duty. It was admirable.
The cake was a hit and I was relieved.
But then I woke up this morning thinking of our crab.
I kind of miss the “little” guy.
