Leo says Jenna's four besties can come-in exchange for baking twelve thousand cupcakes for his company's pirate-themed event. Shiver me timbers, that's a lot of icing! Now veterans in the cupcake-baking game, the PLC takes on the challenge.

My Thoughts

When Jenna’s dad brings home tickets for a cruise, he expected the whole family to come with him.  Now with Jenna’s younger siblings down with the chicken pox, he offers the other four tickets to Peace, Love and Cupcake bakers in a deal that they can come along if they make 12,000 cupcakes!  Challenge accepted!  The girls end up being in the kitchen for most of the cruise and the weather has turned a bit nasty and threatens to ruin their hard work.  Along with the temperatures in the kitchen, the tempers between Jenna and her sister are also rising.

This is a really cute read for anyone who adores cupcakes.  The authors also include a few recipes that will tempt you into making a few treats for yourself.  There is just enough suspense to keep the story progressing and and it is geared toward middle school readers.  Fun for the whole family.
