Cupcake Pick: Winner Bakes All
(The Cupcake Club series)
by Sheryl Berk and Carrie Berk
Fluffy with fondant, sweet with sugar, cute with cupcakes, Winner Bakes All is a big winner! The Cupcake Club girls of Peace, Love and Cupcakes are at it again and up to their elbows is flour and fondant.
Sadie is having trouble in math class but shines on the basketball court when she's not worried about her parents fighting or wondering whether they will end up divorced. The only thing that takes her mind off her troubles is baking cupcakes with friends Lexi, Kylie and Jenna. The girls need to grow their business and they come up with the perfect idea of Cupcake Points--which will work like a frequent shopper card. The more cupcake orders a person places, the more cupcakes she will earn as a reward.
They are enthusiastic until a huge snowstorm destroys the roof of the local bakery---where the owner always orders their latest creations. What will they do now? The girls send in a video to be contestants on Battle of the Bakers and are picked by the producers to compete. May the best cupcake win!
Readers who love a sweet story about cupcakes and competition will love Winner Bakes All. There are recipes for the cupcakes that Peace, Love and Cupcakes bakes and some helpful tips on how to hold a friendly cupcake challange of your own. Sprinkles, anyone?
Highly, higly recommended grades 4-up and for serious foodies and cupcake queens! If you haven't discovered this series, do yourself a favor and stock up on all the books. They are well worth it!
