HAHAHAHAHAHA at reseverations.
She didn't understand what speed "medium" should be. HER mixer didn't say slow, medium or fast, it had numerical speeds - 1 through 6. And she didn't understand the concept of greasing and flouring the pan...as in, shaking the excess flour out after the pan was coated.
She IS a blonde...and the scary thing is that she's extremely smart. I don't know what was up with the cake thing...she hasn't called me with cooking questions since.
