Pairs Well With
Last summer during break I was baking and I decided to make some coffee cake for the first time. I went on the computer to look up the recipe. After I printed the recipe off the computer I went into the kitchen to prepare all the ingredients I needed. Then I set the oven to the proper temperature and started to mix the ingredients in a bowl. When the oven beeped I put the mixture into the cake pan and baked it.
When the cake was finally finished baking, I let it cool and put the cinnamon mixture on top. When I added the toppings I asked my mom is she wanted to try a piece. She said “Yes.” I gave her a slice and she said that she loved it and said it was really food and I should go offer my neighbors a piece as well.
I went over to my neighbor’s house and offered her a piece of the cake. She also responded “Yes.” As I was handing her the cake I was feeling kind of nervous and hoping she wouldn’t say something mean because this was my first time I made this recipe. But I was totally wrong she loved it and said she wanted another piece. Then she had complimented me again! This made me feel very good because it was a new recipe and it was my first time making it.
As you can probably tell I am very happy with myself for getting good complements about making the cake by myself with nobody helping me. I will never forget this day because it was the one time I got complimented on my food that was made from scratch and by myself with no help at all.
