Here's what happened: Abel Gonzales, known to us mortals as the "king of deep-frying," selected the winning cake out of dozens of contestants. The Dr Pepper 125th anniversary cake contest winner, a Dr Pepper Black Forest cake by Julie Ray of Fort Worth -- who jokingly renamed her creation "The Ha-Ha I Won Cake" on the spot -- was then fried on premises by Gonzales.
Thus, presenting, Abel Gonzales' "Deep-Fried Dr Pepper Cake"...
