These are true little stories of me and my friends. They are all about our epic fails and how we seem to have a laugh out of these moments which make hilarious stories that most teenage girls can relate to.

Becoming independent is the first step towards happiness. It is said that doing things for yourself gives you a sense of pride and pride leads to joy, well I am trying to follow this rule. My first step on the path of independence was cooking for myself and the easiest homemade food I thought possible to make was cakes. Me and two of my best friends Kelly and Amyleigh who have been suffering heartache decided this is something we could do for ourselves; a way of moving forward and embracing womanhood, only none of us knew the first thing about cooking as we were queens of takeaways. So we decided to follow a recipe books instructions, the only trouble was that the scales weren’t correct, so of course we went freestyle and used random measurements. You can only imagine this ended in disaster. The smell of burning wafted through the living room causing us to rush into the kitchen during a very entertaining episode of Takeshi's Castle (a game show made in Tokyo, which is made up of various challengers that are unbelievably idiotic) and dragging the cakes out of the oven in the process forgetting to put on oven gloves, meaning painfully burned hands. The cakes were burned but that didn’t damping our high spirits and we still believed these cakes could taste half decent; were we proved wrong. The cakes were unbelievable bad, I didn’t know it was possible to burn cakes on the outside but still have them undercooked on the inside. The first bite was repulsive, the hard crunch of overcooked cake top then the watery, sugar loaded middle didn’t taste as I had expected. This shameful failure didn’t stop us from attempting again and a week later we were in the kitchen again with our high expectations of our cakes. This time chocolate cakes but with no cooking chocolate we used an Easter egg and galaxy hot chocolate powder, adding it to our homemade cake mix and then placing them into the oven. Again we were reminded by the smell of burning and ran into the kitchen this time missing Mock of the week. Since it was three in the morning mine and Kelly’s appetite wasn’t high but Amyleigh who was a metabolism miracle grabbed a cake and to our surprise said it tasted great. The next day when we woke up then Amyleigh got picked up to go home while me and Kelly sat down to my morning glory coffee and our surprisingly good cakes. Just after finishing our snack Kelly received a text from Amyleigh warning us not to eat the cakes since she had been sick and suspected food poisoning but of course it was too late and we all spent the rest of the day being sick and feeling horribly ill. I will never cook again.
