My father was a gentle person who was passionate about life. He loved his family and he loved angel food cake. My mother decided to surprise my father for his birthday and make him an angel food cake from scratch and top it with strawberries and whipped cream--one of his favorite desserts. Mom had gotten the ingredients in line and had everything in the mixer ready to go. Now this mixer was an older model that sometimes decided it just did not want to work without a little help, that meant giving it a good whack on the side after the setting dial was turned. Mom was scurrying around to make sure that the cake would be done long before Dad got home from work. She wanted everything to be perfect for his 45th birhday. Just as she had begun mixing the batter, the phone rang. Mom turned off the mixer, raised the beaters from the bowl and rushed to answer it. My youngest sister was only about 3 1/2 years old and very inquisitive. That day she decided Mommy was busy and needed help with Daddy's birthday cake. She walked over to the counter where the mixer was just waiting to be turned on to mix the batter. She pulled her little stool over to the counter to reach the mixer. She turned the dial; and alas, this time the mixer decided it was warmed up enough and did not need a second whack to get it to work. Since the beaters were not down in the bowl the kitchen and the batter looked quite differently than they had just a few minutes prior. The angel food cake batter that had been on the beaters was not all over the cupboards, walls, and ceiling. Mother heard the noise and went to investigate after her very hurried phone call. The look on my sister's face was priceless as she watched the batter flying all over the kitchen. Mother could only rush to turn off the mixer and laugh. As for my father's birthday cake, it turned out quite a bit smaller than it should have. But it was made with the love of my mother and my little sister, which made it taste all the better!
