In this picture, I was getting the ingredients for the cake. I was feeling excited at the time because this was actually the first cake I had ever made by myself. I was also feeling nervous about how it would turn out.
In these pictures I am adding some ingredients to the cake batter. I was worried because I didn’t want anything to spill. I also didn’t want any eggshells to fall into the batter.
Here I was adding the remaining ingredients to the batter. I was trying to be careful so I wouldn’t drop anything or mess up. I was feeling pretty happy, though, because even if I did mess up, I could still say I was having fun!!!
In this step, I was feeling relieved and pretty confident. I wasn’t too worried because all that was really left was pouring the batter and then baking it. It really wasn’t that likely for me to mess up. Also, my mom was watching to make sure that I didn’t mess up.
In this picture, I was feeling relieved because the job was almost half over. At the same time, I was feeling a bit frustrated because I couldn’t find a good way to hold the bowl. That made it hard to scrape the batter from the bowl, so I was happy when it was over.
Whilebaking the cake, I was unsure of how the cake would turn out. I didn’t want it to taste bad, and I was impatient to see how it would turn out. I was really anxious and was afraid that the cake would fall apart or something of that sort.
While I was decorating the cake, I had mixed emotions. I was really excited to show others what I had done, but at the same time I was worried something would go wrong. I was also frustrated because icing the cake was harder than expected.
This is a picture of the cake I had made. In the other picture, my friend is eating it. I felt very proud at this time because I had made a cake that was actually pretty good! Afterwards, most of my cake had been eaten.
