Take another look at the sentence:

Sipping slowly at the diner counter, the hot soup was enjoyed by Timothy.

Sipping slowly at the diner counter, a participle phrase, is right next to soup, an illogical target. Timothy, not the soup, should be the one making all of that rude noise!

Before you continue, review the rules for misplaced and dangling modifiers.
