Just Desserts

By Beth Beutler
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?"
