My first cake was a chocolate cake made in a 13x9 inch pan. I was only 8 or 9 at the time, and did the whole thing from start to finish by myself. I mixed it by hand and timed it just perfectly, I thought. I pulled it out of the oven, it smelled so wonderful, and set it to cool. I came back in about 15 minutes to find the center had fallen. Not knowing any better, I frosted the cake, adding an inch thick frosting in the center to make up for the "dent". When we went to eat the cake. I cut into it and the gooey middle ran everywhere. It was pretty sad. My mom said at that point I couldn't rebake the cake because of the frosting, so we ate the firm parts, and tried to ignore the goo. It was a great learning experience.

That will be a great story to share with your child when they start to cook. It will help relieve any pressure he/she might have on being perfect the first time.
