Winner Bakes All by Sheryl & Carrie Berk

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?

This is such a delightful chapter book! I know my sister and I would have really loved to have had this as kids. A lot happens to Sadie in this book, fears of money troubles and fears over her parent’s arguments (which I think most kids can identify with.) She has two harassing brothers that ultimately always have her back…and she has her friends and PLC (Peace, Love, Cupcakes.) I don’t want to go into too much detail because that would ruin the book, but I really enjoyed how this book expressed that winning isn’t everything. I think that this would make a perfect treat (pun completely intended) for young girls who show an interest in baking!

I don’t want to sound shallow…but I have to say, my favorite part is the section of cupcake recipes in the back. Yeah, I’m kind of a foodie.  (Golden Caramel Cupcakes, yep, sounds like heaven…)
