1 "What are you doing, Dad?" I asked.
2 "Trying to win a contest," he replied.
3 "I don't understand."
4 Dad smiled as he continued to stir the lumpy cake batter. "Our dinner club is having a night when the men make desserts. The ladies will vote on the best dessert."
5 "Oh," I said, with a twinkle in my eye. Dad was competitive. When he took on a project, he went all out. He did this even when there was no prize! He just liked to be the best.
6 I asked him what he had decided to bake.
7 "Mom loves red velvet cake. It's a challenge to make from scratch, so I don't think anyone else will try it."
8 "What's so hard about it?"
9 "It takes some work to get the color just right. It should look just like red velvet. I need to put in enough cocoa so that it tastes chocolaty but not make the cake too brown."
