Mani Niall did not start out to be a baker. In fact, he did not even start out as Mani, but as George. The Sanskrit name-change from the '70s is but a minor note in the career of a man who once worked at a restaurant called the Golden Temple of Conscious Cookery, once made ice cream for Michael Jackson in a hotel bathroom, and, when opportunity knocked, parlayed a request from Danny DeVito into a boffo baking biz.

THE WOODLAND TRAILS meandering through Downs Park are, for the most part, empty this time of year. The warm-weather crowds of day-tripping families, joggers, bike riders and concert-goers have given way in recent weeks to a few hardy volunteers traipsing through the underbrush. They're looking for sap - collecting it from plastic jugs attached to trees - for making maple syrup in an annual public demonstration. The production will get under way this weekend at the temporary maple sugar shack in the park's Brightwater Pavilion.

The thick amber liquid reached a hard boil. Rising steam permeated the area with the distinctive aroma of maple syrup, the natural sweetener that makes pancakes taste just that much better.When the thermometer registered 240 degrees Fahrenheit, Marie Martz took the pot off the burner and put it in a pan of water. After the syrup had cooled 20 degrees, it was ready to crystallize for pouring into leaf-shape molds to harden into maple sugar candy.Mrs. Martz learned the skill from her father, J. Curtis Dom, 81, who is making his last trip to the Maryland State Fair to demonstrate his skills this year.
