48 Hour Book Challenge: Day Two

June 5, 2010 Whitney read-a-thon 8 Comments

Several years ago my aunt went to a party hosted by a couple of gourmet chefs.  Determined to impress them decided to make a dessert– Death by Chocolate.  My aunt began baking the cake the day of the party; while the cake was in the oven she turned the page and to much horror read DAY TWO.

Apparently, the cake was suppose to be refrigerated for 24 hours before adding the icing.  With the party being that evening only a few hours would have to do.  When Death by Chocolate was done with the icing added, it looked more like a Chocolate Lava Cake gone wrong.

Unlike my dear aunt, I knew to turn the page and am starting my own DAY TWO.

    Your story is a good reminder for all of us that it's always wise to turn the page and double-check…..
