Native Germans! please help me translate this short funny paragrath into german!?

Dick was seven years old, and his sister, Catherine, was five. One day their mother took them to their aunt’s house to play while she went to the big city to buy some new clothes.

The children played for an hour, and then at half past four their aunt took Dick into the kitchen. She gave him a nice cake and a knife and said to him,

“ Now here’s a knife, Dick. Cut this cake in half and give one of the pieces to your sister, but remember to do it like a gentleman,”

“Like a gentleman?” Dick asked. “How do gentleman do it?”

“They always give the bigger piece to the other person,” answered his aunt at once.

“Oh,” said Dick. He thought about this for a few seconds. Then he tool the cake to his sister and said to her,

“Cut this cake in half. Catherine.”

    Richard war sieben, seine Schwester Kathrin fünf. Eines Tages brachte sie ihre Mutter zu ihrer Tante, weil sie in die Stadt fuhr, um neue Kleidung zu kaufen.

    Die Kinder spielten ein Stunde, und gegen halb fünf nahm die Tante Richard mit zu sich in die Küche. Sie gab ihm einen Kuchen und ein Messer und sagte zu ihm: "Hier hast du ein Messer. Schneid den Kuchen in zwei Stücke und gib eins davon deiner Schwester. Aber sei dabei ein Gentleman."

    "Ein Gentleman?" fragte Richard. "Wie macht ein Gentleman sowas?"

    "Ein Gentleman gibt immer den anderen das größere Stück," sagte seine Tante.

    "Oh," sagte Richard. Er dachte ein bisschen darüber nach, dann nahm er den Kuchen, brachte ihn zu seiner Schwester und sagte: "Schneid mal den Kuchen in zwei Stücke...."
