It’s Cupcake’s birthday, and she wants to throw a party for all her friends. She brainstorms with her friend Muffin, but Muffin points out problems with all of Cupcake’s ideas: a beach party will make Ice Cream and Chocolate Bar melty. A boat party might make Soup seasick. A frosting and sprinkles makeover party won’t go over well with Hamburger. Cupcake is about to despair when Muffin has one last idea. Terry Border takes food, adds wire limbs, and then with a little posing and prop magic, creates adorable characters and humorous situations.
