Three minutes. You can microwave half a box of cake mix in a bowl in the microwave in three minutes.
Now isn’t THAT the most dangerous news you’ve ever heard?

(Confession though, I think I might be too old for fake pink frosting. It’s kind of…muchtoomuch? I never thought I’d see the day. This might have to go across the hall to the nice MP.)

Look out Tang-era housewives. Immabout to make a mess.
