My parents, the ones with the iron stomachs, endured my cooking trials and errors with patience and good humor. One day after school, I decided to surprise them by baking a cake from scratch for the first time for my father's birthday. I got the dry ingredients, carefully measured them into the bowl, then mixed in the liquids. I greased and dusted the cake pan,confidently poured the mixture into the pan, and popped the pan into the oven. I set the timer, and wandered into the living room to watch Ozzie and Harriet on the oval screen. About fifteen minutes later, doubt began to nag at my mind. Wasn't cake supposed to have some kind of shortening or butter or something in it? I confirmed that in the recipe, and realized that I hadn't added any at all. I peeked into the oven...saved! The cake was only firm around the edges; I grabbed a stick of oleo, stirring it into the center of the cake that was not yet baked, and as I stirred, the oleo melted and blended in. There! Ingenious! I frosted it and served the cake that evening to my unsuspecting parents. They were all smiles as they ate the middle of the cake, then got strange looks on their faces as they nibbled the edges. "Uh, did you do something different with this cake?" Mom inquired. When I confessed what had happened, they laughed and enjoyed the middle of the cake, leaving the remainder. Hey, Mom even said that it was a clever idea to try to save the cake. Frankly, I thought that it was more likely an idea to try to save my own bacon!
