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.) Motto Matters Poetry Contest Sponsor Natasha L Scragg Written 17.09.21

Loved this one, very entertaining! Like the subtle hint in their to feelings of uncertainty or self doubt but in the end it worked out great. Inspiring! We all want our cake and to eat it :-D

Hi Lindsay and thank you so much. They have much better selections in a bakery. I like watching The British Bake Off. It does seem to bring the baker out in people as sales in baking products go up when that is shown. Emilia : )
