For her son's birthday, reader M. Lynne Taylor of Tannersville, New York, threw a pizza party at a local pizza parlor. She baked her cake right in a disposable pizza pan, and the restaurant gave her a pizza box for displaying it -- plus a real pizza wheel for cutting the cake.

- 1 baked 12- or 14-inch round cake (made in a cake or pizza pan)

To create the look of pizza sauce, frost the cake with red icing, within 1/2 inch of the edge.
Sprinkle on white chocolate "cheese," strawberry "pepperoni," banana "mushrooms," grape "olives" and so on. Serve in the pizza box.
