  雅思口语里面问sth you made that you give to other people.想要让礼物显得特别有心意,那就来亲手做一个!如果做手工,步骤貌似太繁琐不容易介绍,如果说的太细致又会显得很啰嗦。那就做甜点吧,浪漫又温馨,送额娘送女友送男友都OK!

  I’d like to talk about the cake I made for my girl friend on her last birthday.

  It was about a few months ago, she just turned 18, so I wanted to give her something special to celebrate. I racked my brains trying to think of a perfect gift for her, but it seemed nothing is quite suitable. I mean, at first, I thought a lipstick would be a safe bet, however, I don’t know what color she likes. And I also thought of buying her some dolls, but there’s nothing special about them. So at last, I decided to give her a home-made cake, to show that I have put a lot of thought and love into this present.

  However, the thing is, I don’t know the first thing about making a cake. So I went to the bookstore and bought a recipe book. When I got home, I just followed the steps in the book but I ended up making a mess in the kitchen. I tried several times, but the first couple of cakes I made were either too sweet or tasteless. I even thought of giving up at some point.

  Luckily, I got the help from my mom. I guess she was so touched by my gesture, or she just wanted to save her kitchen. Anyway, she helped me with the proportion of those ingredients, and finally I made it.

  It was not a decent-looking cake, but my girl friend was super excited when she saw it. I guess it was all worth it.
