Cupcake has a problem: He wants to go to Turkey with Eggplant to meet Eggplant’s aunt’s friend, Turkish Delight, who is a great baker. And Cupcake owns a bakery!
So Cupcake starts saving up money by baking special things and having really popular bake sales. But suddenly, the printing company where Eggplant works is going out of business, so it looks like Eggplant won’t be able to go to Turkey. And Cupcake only saved up enough money for one ticket.
Of course, Cupcake decides to be a good friend and give Eggplant the money for the ticket. 🙂
When Eggplant comes back, he brings lots of spices for Cupcake’s shop. And they see an ad for a baking contest in a magazine, where the winner gets two plane tickets to anywhere in the world! They start baking right away!
I really liked this story. I loved the characters of Cupcake, Eggplant, Carrot (a waiter in a restaurant), and Sugar (one of Cupcake’s best customers). The pictures are cute and a little bit silly and fun, and there are some recipes at the end of the book that sound delicious.
