    Recipe Introduction

    "Take the Cake" means to win the prize, but where did this saying come from? It's an American expression that comes from the South where they had cakewalking contests. To "cakewalk" meant to strut your stuff, so the person who did the fanciest dance steps got to take home the cake.
