Thankfully, Ada Durbin wasn't one of those "stage mothers" who constantly interfered with the Director's work.

Even though the Durbins had a cook, Ada still liked to bake. She specialized in the little mince pastries she learned to make when she was a bride and the little chocolate cookies decorated with half-cherries or chopped nuts which were favourites with Edith and Deanna.
