Winner Bakes All by Sheryl Berk, Carrie Berk Cupcake Club Party

Includes recipes and tips to try at home!

"Kids and cupcakes are the perfect recipe!"-Sophie and Katerine, stars of TLC's DC Cupcakes

Meet Sadie.

When she's not mixing it up on the basketball court, she's mixing the perfect batter with her friends in the cupcake club. Sadie's definitely no stranger to competition, but the oven mitts are off when the club is chosen to appear on Battle of the Bakers, the ultimate cupcake competition on TV.

But the real battle happens off camera when the club's baking business starts losing money.

With the clock ticking and the cameras rolling, will the club and their cupcakes rise to the occasion?

Sheryl Berk, New York Times bestselling author of Soul Surfer, and her nine-year-old daughter, Carrie, a cupcake connoisseur who has reviewed confections from the world in her Carrie's Cupcakes Critiques newsletter, have cooked up a delightful new series sure to be a treat.

My Review

5 of 5 Cupcakes

Winner Bakes All was such a cute read for me. My daughter and I read it together and she loved every minute of it! Sadie is such a hot ticket baking and having her baking club. She has great friends and she loves to bake which is a rarity for her age. Sadie and the club get a chance to be in a bakers competition and they are all excited. The only thing is that things away from the competition are getting out of control. As if being in a baking competition is not enough the gang starts to have some issues they need to work through in order to stay together and focus on the bake off.

What will happen to Sadie and the club? This is such a great read for middle school girls! My daughter loved it and she wanted more. Plus yes we baked cupcakes after reading it and they were YUMMY!
