Activity: Lottie's Luck

It's early morning, and you've already got a hankering for something sugary from The Enchanted Bakery down the street. You're not even sure if they're open yet, but the oh-so-tempting thought of colorful cupcakes and fruit tarts is getting in the way of your common sense. As you finally arrive at the bakery's storefront, you hear a shriek from inside and barge your way in without a second thought! Poor Lottie is trembling in the doorway of the kitchen, holding onto a very burnt cherry pie. Tears are starting to bubble up in her eyes, and she looks like she could burst any second. Behind the thick cloud of smoke in the kitchen, you spot various piles of soot, which you can only assume are the ghosts of pastries that could have been. The bitter smell of scorched sugar lingering in the air confirms your assumption. However, amongst the wreckage, you spot an intricate pink cake, topped with delicate buttercream roses.


 "I-I got so caught up in this wedding cake that I forgot to set the timer for the ovens! Everything is ruined," she squeaks pitifully. "Oh goodness... what am I gonna do?! The shop is due to open in an hour!" She wipes a tear from her eye, and looks at you expectantly from behind her paw. "Hey sugar... you can follow a recipe... can't you?"


This month's theme is: PIE!

Apple, pumpkin, cherry, blueberry, oh my! The possibilities with pies are truly limitless! There's truly something for everyone, whether it's fruit pies, chocolate pies, custard pies, etc. Choose your base:whether it be cookie crust or a classic shortening crust, then spoon in your favorite pie filling! Feel free to use canned fillings and pre-made pie crust, so long as you're making some effort to put them together!


BONUS: Fillings aren't the only versatile aspect of pies! You can also make intricate designs and decorations with the crust. From lattices to cut-outs, decorate your pie for a paycheck bonus.
