The Chocolate Cake is the first short story in the series A Culinary Catastrophe, a series that combines entertaining romances with delicious recipes. This first short episode tells the story of Tak who has invited the man of her life - or so she hopes - for dinner at her home. As she is a passionate cook, this project doesn't faze her until she learns that he has a sweet tooth and would do anything for chocolate. Now dessert is something Tak has never cared for. Out of her depth, Tak organizes a last-minute recipe from her best friend Jenny, and from then on, things spiral out of control in Tak's usually so well-organized kitchen.
This short story includes the recipe for the chocolate cake that Tak tries to bake.
