If you haven't seen it yet, here is a picture of Brooke's armadillo cake.

And if you've never seen Steel Magnolias, here is the armadillo cake scene from the movie!

If you want to try the Dirty Girl Scout Martini that made Brooke barf (because she foolishly had 5 of them, not because the drink is bad!), head on over to Camp in Brooklyn.
