Paula says - "A 'cake walk' is a traditional midwestern event held at church bazaars and town festivals. Ticketholders walk to music on a circle made of numbered squares. When the music stops a number is called and the person standing on the square with that number wins a homemade cake. With its geometric design and colorful spots this turtle just cries out 'cake walk' to me!
