Sandra Lee did not create the Kwanzaa cake.

December 17, 2010

You might think that I am perpetually cynical but I’m not.  I actually often assume that people are telling the truth.  Okay … maybe not often … but sometimes I do.  And sometimes I am wrong.


Sandra Lee did not create the hideous Kwanzaa cake featured on her show. She just inflicted it upon the world which still makes her culpable.


Denise Vivaldo has confessed to actually writing the Kwanzaa cake recipe.

Here’s the truth. I wrote and sold the recipe for the Kwanzaa cake to Sandra Lee and, while I’m confessing my soul, yes, for Christ’s sake, the Chanukah cake, too. There, I said it.

Forgive me Father.

Apparently, celebrities who “write” cookbooks actually just put their names on books full of recipes created by other people, like Denise.


I should have known this.  Shouldn’t the real author be acknowledged somewhere in a book?  Isn’t this lying to consumers?

And I can’t believe that Sandra Lee actually needed someone else to create her stupid not-even-close-to-home-made recipes.
