One day I made a cake to take to my work and my daughter was in the kitchen and ask to watch. She ask how do you know how much to put? I said you have measuring cups and spoons.All the while I was busy she was taking note of flour, butter, sugar,vanillaand such. I thought how sweet she wanted to know what mommy was doing and I said making a birthday cake for a co-worker. Then about five weeks later the family was kidding me about my birthday coming up soon and that night my daughter Sarah ask to have a friend spend the nightand i said ok. Well about 2 a.m. I heard a noise and i peeked out the bedroom door and I eased down the hall and looked in the kitchen to see what the noise was and there they were both girls covered from head to toe in flour, a large mixing bowl in the floor with flour,sugar,milk, oatmeal and salt in the bowl and all over thefloor ,of course they had emptied the bags copletely and when they saw me their eyes got big as saucers because they thought they were in trouble, but you gotta just love them when they are making you a very special birthday cake. We all laughed so hared we cried. then we shared in the clean up.

That is so sweet that they wanted to bake you a cake.  I am glad you woke up before they got to the oven.  A mess can be cleaned up in a little time.  Using the oven could have been dangerous.
