Default I learned something today

Last night my 11 year old daughter begged to make a cake, from a mix, until I gave in. The resulting cake was extremely crummy, it wouldn't hold together at all. She denied leaving anything out, even re-read the instructions to me off the box. Today I went to get some eggs out of the refrigerator and noticed the entire dozen that I bought earlier in the week was still there. Ergo, she didn't put any eggs in the cake.

The cake tasted fine, it just dissolved into a mess of crumbs when touched with a fork. In a moment of inspiration, I tossed the whole thing in the freezer this afternoon and, tonight, when the kids asked what was for dessert, I pulled out the cake. It stayed together perfectly fine when frozen.
