Are you kidding me???? How long do you think it takes to bake 80 cupcakes? For us, it took us 10 hours. I am twelve years old and my feet are killing me! My friend MF, my mother, brother and I were in the kitchen all day. And tomorrow, we will put all 10 hours of baking and put it to the test. My neighbors/ judges came over and one of them said, “….. It paralyzed my whole body” the other said, “Everything was perfect. There’s not one thing that is missing.It’s exactly right.” regarding my cupcakes that I am entering in the benefit. We have scooped, mixed, lined, and cleaned! Clean, clean, clean! We are exhausted. Somehow I got to write a freestyle poem for today so here it goes:


Cupcake lives on 1234 Pastry Ave. In a box shaped apartment.
Cupcake wears all different kinds of skirts like zebra stripes or bright,bold colors.
Each day she goes to her work at Frostings R’ Us.
After work she goes to the Sugar Factory to fuel up on sweet sugar and crazy calories.
 She is individually made with love.
 Her mother is Sprinkles and her father is Batter.
Her brother is Compote and her sister is Flour.
Her grandfather is Ganache. 
 She is rich in personality but can be fresh and vivid also. 
She has her hair up high almost reaching the sky and usually has a hairband or clip.
