Last week, Beth baked a cake for Lilly’s birthday party. Lilly wanted a strawberry cake with pink frosting. Beth was happy to bake the cake.
First, Beth mixed the ingredients in a big bowl. Next, she poured the cake batter into four round baking pans. She put the pans in the oven. Finally, she baked the cakes for 20 minutes.
Then, Beth prepared the pink frosting. After the cakes cooled, Beth stacked them and covered them with frosting. Beth wrote Lilly’s name on top with white frosting. She put seven candles in the cake.
On Sunday, Beth surprised Lilly with the strawberry cake. Lilly loved her cake! Lilly had many gifts for her birthday. But Lilly said her cake was the best gift of them all!
