My mother and grandma were both fabulous cooks.  When Mom passed away a few months ago, my brother and I started reminiscing about her teaching us to cook.  My first lesson in baking was to bake a cake.  I waited eagerly watching the cake bake in the oven.  When it came time to test the cake to see if it was done, Mom told me to touch the top of the cake to see if the cake would spring bake.  Well, being very young, I was concerned about how hot the cake would be.  I thought that it would be best to quickly jab my finger at the cake.  Needless to say, I jabbed my finger down to the second knucke into the center of the cake.  It did not spring back!  My mother "hid" the hole by frosting the cake and filling the crater with icing.  When she served the cake, she gave me the piece filled with icing.  I treasure all she taught me and how gracious she was in hiding my error.

What a nice memory...I'll bet that frosting tasted good along with the cake!
