Meet our talented chef protagonist (24F), who works at a famous restaurant chain known for its delicious food. Due to the pandemic, she's been staying home and trying out new recipes, uploading vlogs to share her culinary adventures. Her sister-in-law (25F) has a son whose 1st birthday is coming up soon, and she asked our chef to make a cake. Of course, she agreed! But then, her sister-in-law asked her to cook for the entire party, and that's when things took a dramatic turn. 😱🎂🍽️

The Aftermath: Family Drama Continues 😲🍽️🎂

After refusing to cook for her nephew's birthday party, our chef finds herself in the middle of family drama. Her partner confronts her, but she stands her ground, reminding him that she's not his family's personal chef. She's already making the cake, after all! 😤🎂🍽️ As the situation escalates, she considers sending her sister-in-law a list of work to be done, along with the costs, to show her what it would really take to cook for the party. Will this bold move resolve the conflict, or will it only add fuel to the fire? 🔥📝🎉
