A Piece Of Cake
There is a phrase A Piece Of Cake
That goes against the ones I make
Not an easy task for me to do
Often end up with burnt mess or goo.
I start by reading all the instructions
Then gather items from recipe introduction
So far, so good, A Piece Of Cake
But time will tell when I finish this bake.
Next weigh out the ingredient things
Flour, sugar, butter and mixed string
Double take check, read list again
Silly old me it was a mixing machine.
Cream butter and sugar add in the flour
This took me well over an hour
Add the eggs, in fell some shell
Oops! oh dear, please don't tell.
Mixture placed equally in two lined tins
Popped into the oven for twenty mins
So good, so far, A Piece Of Cake
Time for a sit, a cup of tea break.
Taken out from the oven, did the knife test
I was so shocked this cake was the best
Put it all together, finished off my bake
Minor issues this time, A Piece Of Cake.
Some things in life can be easy to achieve
Harder for others or harder to believe
Never give up just keep trying to be
This is what this phrase means to me.
(And you'll soon have your Piece Of Cake like me.)
