Chocolate Cake is Brown

Abigail W. ----- 5th Grade

Chocolate cake is the best invention ever created by mankind (after autocorrect). Chocolate cake is made of chocolate, and chocolate makes all of earth’s wonders like brownies, chocolate ice cream, chocolate frosting, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate wafers, chocolate donuts, and most importantly, the dirt from Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Chocolate cake is layers and layers upon smooth, moist chocolate. If you don’t believe me, ask that kid who was forced to eat chocolate cake by Miss Trunchbull from Matilda (trust me, she enjoyed it). Chocolate cake is amazing.

Chocolate cake is definitely amazing because we’ve had it for over 150 years and no one decided that it shouldn’t exist. I have to thank Eliza Leslie for publishing that chocolate cake recipe, otherwise I would still be having plain cake. Another thing, if you’re able to resist the deliciousness of chocolate cake, you must be crazy because chocolate has a special chemical that makes your brain want more. According to, “Chocolate contains chemicals like tryptophan which the brain uses to produce serotonin, the neurotransmitter and hormone responsible for feelings of happiness and joy.” Because chocolate cake has chocolate, there’s no wonder I go “mm” and dig in for more.

I first laid eyes on the love of my life at a birthday party when I was very young. At the time, I enjoyed eating mango and chocolate pudding. So when I went to this party, they had only two cakes: a vanilla cake with pineapple filling and a chocolate cake. I had never eaten either, so I avoided what seemed to me as a big, brown mud cake, and decided to try the pineapple filling cake, assuming it was mango. Might I tell you, that was the worst thing I’ve ever had (yes, offense to you pineapple-filling lovers*). I told my mom and she told me to try the chocolate cake instead. I told her it looked like poop. But when she went to the bathroom, I took a sliver of it and let me tell you, it was delicioso.

I think you should try chocolate cake because it’s better than any food in the world (don’t look that up). I hope that you disown all of the food you eat and eat chocolate cake for the rest of your life. (Please don’t. It’s unhealthy to eat too much chocolate cake.)
