When Grandma's birthday arrives, Grandpa decides he'll "traumatize" the kitchen with his baking skills and create an even bigger cake than he's made in previous years. Despite admonitions from his wife, Grandpa proceeds. How can four eggs turn into 86 or one cup cocoa become 24 boxes or a pan expand into his truck's flatbed? Grandpa's adapting the recipe! Ed Sala narrates with a steady pace, emphasizing both the rhyme and the exaggeration of this original tall tale. He gives personality to Grandpa and Grandma and relishes the "whopperness" of everything. The recording includes a recipe for a cake, not a whopper, but large enough for 16.
