Couch Burning has long been a tradition to West Virginia University. The students burn couches because the basketball team won. They burn couches when the football team wins. They burn couches when the football team loses. They burn couches when it snows. WVU students burn couches. It’s what they do.
We were approached to do a unique cake for a WVU alumni who was celebrating his sixtieth birthday. We were given an example of the typical couches that get burned and we used that as our model. With 60 candles on the cake, we were pretty sure our “Couch Cake” would burn too.
