My Mom's birthday cake was going to be perfect. I had been looking up cake recipes all week to find the richest most decadent homemade cake ever. The CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE supreme and my Mom was going to love it ! The night of mom's birthday finally came, and when she and Dad left for the dinner date, I got to work in the kitchen.
My little sister wandered in and asked if she could help. But I shook my head and shooed her out. This cake was going to be my present to Mom made all by myself. As I began baking I began to realize that the cake was more complicated than I had previously thought. But that was fine, I had plenty of time until Mom and Dad would be home.
As I mixed all the ingredient, I found that my mixing techniques were not perfect, I made my kitchen in a mess , flour fell on the countertop and floor. I looked with dismay at the chocolate disaster that I had created. But I wasn't alone, my sister threw me a bag of chocolate chips decorate with . We used the chocolate chips to try and cover up the parts where the icing-filled cake had turned into mush.
I messily piped "Happy Birthday" onto the cake just as I heard Mom and Dad pull into the driveway. A barely recognizable chocolate fudge lava cake sitting in the middle of it all. When Mom and Dad walked in, they looked at the messy state of the kitchen with wide eyes. "Don't ask", I said holding my head in my hands. Mom smiled and I grabbed the candle and fire starter.
We walked over to the kitchen table and sang happy birthday. After Mom blew out the candles she tried to cut the cake. Mom stuck the fork in her mouth. I was waiting for a response, An expression crossed over Mom's face. "Oh my goodness Emma, this is amazing, "she said! Everyone else agreed! I was shocked, after we had cake we all pitched in to clean up the kitchen.
