Answers: His sister likes chocolate cake. His friend told him to open a bakery. He can follow recipes well, but he would find creating his own recipes difficult.
It is my sister’s birthday next week. She loves chocolate cake, and I love baking. So, instead of picking up a cake from the store, I will bake her one myself. I taught myself baking when I was younger, and it has become one of my favorite things to do. My friend once told me I should open a bakery, but he himself is an excellent baker. Maybe we could open one together. I am not sure my baking is good enough, though. I can follow a recipe well but creating a recipe myself could be difficult. Maybe my friend and I need to take a baking class, so we can learn to come up with our own recipes. Or maybe we could teach ourselves that, too!
