It was early Sunday morning. The alarm in my cell phone rang. My sister and I planned to wake up very early that day to make a surprise cake for mother’s birthday.
We walked to the kitchen and prepared all the ingredients. It was our first time at making a birthday cake so we had to read the recipe on the Internet every time. We did everything in silence because we did not want mother or father to wake up.
We mixed the ingredients into a batter and then put the batter in the oven. After baking for several minutes, we took the cake from the oven. It was not very shapely, but it looked delicious. We put it on an oval plate and put it on a small table near mother’s bedroom door, hoping that mother saw it right after she opened the door. Then, we went to our bedroom.
Suddenly, we heard a sound “Prankkk”. We ran out of our bedroom and were very suprised. Our cat had stood on the table and the cake spread on the floor. We were speechless, thinking that our hard effort was useless. Then, mother opened the door and asked us what happened. We told her what happened and she smiled. She hugged us and said thanks for the spoiled gift.
