A Thanksgiving Tradition: Texas vs. Texas A&M

For years our family has enjoyed a Thanksgiving tradition of good football.  Just not any football, but Aggie football.  Yes, I am an Aggie.  So is my husband and my sister (most likely due to my brainwashing her at a young age!).  And when I think of Thanksgiving, I think of the big game… Texas A&M vs Texas.    This is the rivalry of all rivalries.  Old foes meet up for a bitter battle to the end.  So keeping in the spirit, I thought we’d have a friendly little cake competition.  Bevo the cake takes on an Aggie ring cake.  Who will win this Lonestar CAKE Showdown?

    It PAINS me to say that the Bevo cake looks awesome, but it does. Great cake! Gotta vote for the Aggie ring though. I bleed maroon!

    Both cakes look great, but I believe Bevo would look better with his horns sawed off! There for my vote is for the Aggie Ring! Whoop!

    I am an independent…. didn’t go to either school but grew up in Tx and have family and friends on either side of this rivalry. The Aggie ring cake…takes the cake. It is far more intricate and complicated. No way to tell how they tasted though…which is the true measure of a cake after all.

    Gig ‘Em Aggies all the way! The Aggie Ring cake looks incredible. Whoop! The Bevo cake just doesn’t look quite right with the horns attached.
