When I was 6 years old Mama made the best cake ever! All of us were at home and mama was in the kitchen baking her cake. I loved to watch her cook, so I was in the kitchen with her. The cake was made from scratch, no cake mix. She baked 3 layers. She always let us lick the bowl and the spoon when she was done with it. I stayed in the kitchen waiting for the cake to bake. Mama was so busy preparing our supper because Daddy would be home from work soon. She removed the cake pans from the oven and she turned them out on a clean towel. She peeled the wax paper off the back(we used wax paper so the cake wouldn't stick back then). She had already started to make her fluffy white icing from egg whites and cooked syrup mixture. Ofcourse she patiently let me help crack the eggs. I also helped to beat the egg whites with a manuel hand egg beater. I loved that utensil. I bought me one from an antique store when I got older. She was in such a hurry that we frosted the cake before it cooled. She let some of us sprinkle on coconut. It was such a pretty cake. But, suddendly it split in several places and some of it fell off the plate onto the table. As Mama cried she was reaching for 7 bowls and 7 spoons and dished us up the best cake ever! All my brothers and sisters(except my 1 year old brother) agree on this one thing for sure, That was the best cake Mama ever made. We are 7 blessed children to have such a wonderful Mama.

What a wonderful memory to have! The best times always were baking with Mama. Sometimes the presentation is not as important as the taste!
