IN A NUTSHELL: Seven children try to surprise their hardworking mother with a cake.

SUMMARY: Mr. and Mrs. Peters have seven children. Each child will only eat one type of food, their tastes ranging from pink lemonade to applesauce! Mrs. Peters indulges each child's request and is exhausted from constantly preparing individual meals for them. This problem is resolved on her birthday, when the children surprise their Mom with a birthday cake made from a combination of all their favorite foods.
