At eight years of age, I decided to bake my first cake....an anniversary cake for my parents. My Mother stayed out of the kitchen so that I could cook alone. My cake was good but then I decided it had to be covered in frosting. That was my mistake....I could not remember which went on pies and which on cakes so their cake wound up covered in meringue. My sweet dad kept eating on that mess until he had eaten it all. I have baked for 60 years since then but still laugh about my meringue iceing.

Yes, that made me laugh! I forgot to put sugar in my first pecan pie - but I was older - a newlywed!
