When I was younger, I used to read a story called, The Bake Shop Ghost, by Jacqueline K Ogburn It told a story about a baker, who made the best cakes ever. She eventually passed away and came back to haunt her bake shop. Whenever new bakers would come to use her bake shop, the ghost would come and tell them to get out of her kitchen! One day, a new baker comes and the ghost tells her to leave. The baker asks her, if she can make a cake that the ghost approves of, will the ghost let her stay and bake. The baker tries many recipes, and the ghost doesn’t think they are good enough. The baker does some research about the ghost and then, makes her one more cake. When the ghost sees it and tries the cake, it brings tears to the ghost’s eyes. The cake is delicious, and written on the top, is a Happy Birthday! The baker had discovered that, that day was the ghost’s birthday. The ghost lets the baker stay, and it is a very successful bake shop.
On the last page of the story, there is a recipe called Ghost Pleasing Chocolate Cake. It includes the recipe and a frosting recipe. If you ever come across this book, I recommend checking it out! It’s a VERY delicious cake, one of my classmates even went as far as to say that it was the best cake she had ever tasted.
It’s a very cute story, with a delicious recipe that I would recommend to everyone. It’s not too difficult to make and it makes a lovely, light, chocolate cake.
