Food for Thought: My Thirteenth Birthday Cake
There are lots of memorable foods that I treasure for giving me great memories, but this birthday cake that I had for my thirteenth birthday was probably the most memorable food experience for me. It was the end to a great birthday party.
I remember that I went bowling with a few of my good friends, and then we came back to my house. My parents made a double layered red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, writing that said Pokémon swag, and little Pokémon figures on it. It was probably the most delicious and rich cake that I had ever eaten. The cake was so rich that after all of us ate two slices, we felt super full. I even got to eat a lot of the cake the next day (I had a lot of leftovers).
I know my cake with all of its decorations sounds childish, but the cake itself was great, and it makes me remember my birthday party and all of my friends. Because I am at a different school than many friends I grew up with, I don’t see them as much anymore. A lot of my friends have gotten busy or they are in sports, so we hardly ever hang out these days. After my thirteenth birthday, I actually haven’t even had another birthday party. I got together with a few of my friends at the mall on my fourteenth and fifteenth birthdays, but there was no cake. So this memorable cake is definitely a reminder of my last real birthday party, and unforgettable with my childhood friends.
