Câu trả lời: 

Several years ago my boyfriend messed up big time, and I was so angry with him that I didn’t even want to listen to his ‘l am so sorry. Please forgive me.’ He kept saying he would do anything to make me forgive him. And decided to give him a punishment he deserved. My boyfriend considered cooking to be a cruel form of punishment. I swear. He always said it was easier for him to work all night long than to make an omelette, let alone some exquisite dishes like lasagna or soup.

So I said I would forgive him if he could make my favourite three-tier chocolate biscuit cake. And I told him I would sit and watch him cooking to make sure he didn’t cheat.

He found a video recipe on the Internet and just followed all the instructions step by step. First, he baked several cakes and made chocolate mousse. Then he assembled the cake, stacking the layers on top of each other. Also, he experimented with cake decorations a bit (who would’ve thought) and finally decided to make a chocolate lace collar around the bottom and middle cakes. The cake looked gorgeous. The crumb was delicate and moist, the frosting was rich and creamy and utterly chocolatey. It was filled with buttercream, fresh fruit, and nuts. He sprinkled the top tier of the cake with chocolate curls and dusted it with confectioners sugar.

My jaw dropped to the floor. I just couldn’t believe he managed to do it for me.
