One of My Favorite Bakers

Because cozy mysteries and baking are a popular combination, I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite bakers, Brooke. (My other favorite baker is Brooke’s sister, Allie.)

Brooke and her teacher.

Me: Brooke, why do you enjoy baking cupcakes?

Brooke: I enjoy cupcakes because they can be fun and creative, or you can make simple cupcakes. There is no right or wrong rule when it comes to cupcakes. Plus, this is an art I’m good at.

Me: Do you prefer to create cupcakes or eat them?

Brooke: I prefer to create. You can make fancy cupcakes or monster cupcakes, and it’s a lot of fun.

Allie in the background: I’d rather eat a cupcake.

Me: Do you prefer cakes or cupcakes, and why?

Brooke: Cupcakes because I can create more flavors, and I can add fillings.

Me: What kind of fillings?

Brooke: Crushed cookies and sprinkles are two of my favorites. But the cupcake needs to be cool enough or else it crumbles.

Brooke recently participated in Cupcake Wars. The kids were put in groups of two, and Brooke and her partner won. Congratulations, Brooke.

Isn’t this so cute with Cookie Monster eating a cookie?

I asked Brooke how she felt about serving her creations, and she told me it was fun to serve the cupcakes and watch people’s reaction. It makes her happy to give people fun food that tastes good.

Maybe in a few years Brooke and I can team up and write a cozy mystery with a theme of baking cupcakes. I’ll keep you posted.

Brooke, thanks so much for spending time with us and sharing your thoughts on baking!

  1. Oh my! I am so impressed! Those Cookie Monster cookies are incredible! I definitely think you should write a book with a cupcake baker. šŸ˜Š


  2. Good morning Brooke and Allie! The cookie monster cupcakes are adorable! I can see why you won first place. I’s so happy for you.
    And Allie, I’m with you on wanting to eat the cupcake!


  3. Wow!! I’m so impressed, Brooke! But I think you need an official taste tester. I volunteer for the job šŸ™‚ Jackie, I can’t wait to read the wonderful mystery you’ll create using cupcakes!
