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?

My Thoughts:
Mother-daughter writing team, Sheryl and Carrie Berk, are bringing us another adventure for the girls in The Cupcake Club. Winner Bakes All is the next book in this delightful series. Sadie's world is rattled after hearing her parents argue about money. She fears they're heading for divorce. If that's not bad enough, tough times hit the club's finances and they take a big financial hit. To make matters even worse, Sadie is struggling in her math class. However bad times are, they are no match for The Cupcake Club. Sadie's friends vow to help her through any crises, even math. The girls decide to enter a huge baking competition to try to help raise money to continue their club.

The Cupcake Club series is a charming series that would appeal to young girls or cupcake lovers. The girls face realistic problems that would hit home with so many kids. However through the strength of friendship and perseverance the girls face their problems head-on. This is a great series that will leave you with warm, fuzzy feelings as well as hungry . . . for cupcakes. The girls are always creating new and mouth-watering recipes. One of the things I love about these books is that Sheryl and Carrie Berk share the recipes made in the book with the readers. This is a great activity to share with your child. They also have a section in the back of the book for girls who may want to start their own club.

Overall this book, as well as the series, is a win. My daughter and I both love reading these books. We can't wait for the next adventure and to try out the new cupcake recipes!
