"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

1. Heat oven 375.

2. Sift flour with 3/4 cup sugar; re-sift 3 times; set aside.

3. At high speed beat egg whites with salt and cream of tarter until soft peaks form.

4 Gradually beat in remaining sugar 1/4 cup at a time. Beat well after each addition. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. With rubber scraper or wire whisk, gently fold extracts into egg whites.

This is my birthday cake recipe. I have made literally hundreds of them in the last 30 years.
