Red Velvet Cake Wars
It’s a traumatic time for Gaynelle Verdeen Bodeen. Her husband has run off with his girlfriend and, in retaliation, Gaynelle has “accidentally” run her car into the double-wide trailer home of that man-stealing woman. Gaynelle subsequently faces various legal charges as well as being observed by a court-appointed psychologist checking on her sanity. All of this happens shortly before the annual Verdeen family reunion in Sweetgum, Texas, usually presided over by Gaynelle’s overbearing Aunt La Merle.
La Merle wants to cancel this year’s reunion because of Gaynelle’s scandal, but Gaynelle and her cousins, sexpot Peaches and laid-back Jimmy Wyvette, insist that the reunion go forward. Besides, Gaynelle bets her house with La Merle that she can make a better-tasting red velvet cake than her officious aunt, who annually takes home the prize for best cake. With the psychologist lurking about, an amorous suitor suddenly appearing out of nowhere and a tornado heading straight for Sweetgum, Gaynelle must learn how to bake a really good cake in a really short time period to keep ownership of her house and keep herself out of jail and the insane asylum to boot.
