A Week To Bake A Cake

I have a week to bake a cake well not exactly a week but it is pretty close. I don’t know what kind of cake to bake or where to start. I just will half to see what I can come up with. I know many people would say baking a cake is easy, but I have never baked a cake and let’s just say I am feeling over whelmed about the whole task ahead. We’ll let me tell you how I got myself it to this situation. It all started with one of the managers retiring and her last day being next Monday. We are having a surprise party for her next Friday.
We were all assigned duties by picking straws, of course I got the shortest straw for baking a cake. I think there was some cheating because everyone was snickering when I got the shortest one. I guess I am the one that got suckered into making a cake for her last day. Well I need some help what type of cake I should make?
They did say she has three favorite cakes… German chocolate, red velvet, and carrot cake; I have a poll that will be due at the end of the week. I half to get started on the cake next week… I need help!! No one at work could decide on a flavor. They are still bickering over other surprises they would like to do. What a crazy week ahead. I will be bugging you guys the whole week to vote…
