Hair swinging to her waist, she maneuvers the mixer through the heavy batter, trying hard not to splatter. Eggs are cracked carefully until six yolks glisten in the cup. She’s delighted with the flower she sees - each yolk a bright petal. Into the mixing bowl and some more whipping. In a couple hours, we all "ohhh!" and "ahhh!" at the finished product, the browned top rising above the rim of the pan. Perfection! Everyone claps. Our nine year old chef takes a bow. There will be cheesecake for dessert.
