Kiss And Make Up
Gals, the next time you need to show your fellas that you’re super sorry, bake up the perfect apology like this sheepish lady in 1957. With any luck (and the perfect steak and fries and a whole cake to himself), your sweetheart will forgive you for not wearing your pearls while vacuuming.
P.S. Gentlemen: Apology cakes are also appreciated by the women in your lives.
