John Applefeller of Appleton loved desserts.

Especially apple desserts.

He loved eating them, but even more, he loved making them - pies, strudels, crisps, and cakes. As his Aunt Harriet used to say: If a man truly cares about making desserts, an apple dessert is what he should make. No one knew how Aunt Harriet had come by such wisdom, but John Applefeller, a man of some forty years, had lived the better part of his life by his aunt's motto.

And now, after a decade of making all kinds of different desserts, John Applefeller had just completed the greatest creation of his career - the world's largest apple pancake.
