Daddy Steve: Uli has a busy day of holiday baking planned. She could really use a little help in the kitchen..
Uli: I need some assistance if ve are all to have holiday treats.
Anthony: No problem! I'll round up some help for you.
Uli: Erm. Just not Frank, ja?
Anthony found Alice and Luke, who happily volunteered to help.
Alice: Here we are, Uli!
Luke: At your service, ma'am!
Uli: Erm, oh...danke.
Alice and Luke are very sweet and well-meaning, but they are a tad befuddled in the kitchen...
Robin: I think you mean clueless.
Anthony: That's a bit harsh, Robin. Then again...
Kaveh: They're very nice, though.
Our three chefs set about baking, but complications, if not the dough, arise.
Luke: Is there a difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon?
Uli: Vell, ja...
Alice: Should I have greased and floured the pan before I poured the batter in?
Uli: Ach der lieber! Luke! You must shut the mixer off before you remove the bowl!
Alice: Oh dear, I don't remember how many eggs I added.
Alice: I know, I'll count the shells I threw away. Let's see...one, two, two and a half. So, I must have put in two and a half eggs. Wait, that can't be right...
Uli: I am exhausted.
Kevin: Is baking very hard work?
Uli: Ja, especially vhen you haff help.
