Here are some of the entries we submitted:

The Baking Mystery by Sam Fitzgerald

I was baking a cake and I went to the shops to get some ingredients.  When I came back everything was gone.  It was confusing.  Then the door of the cupboard creaked open and I walked around the table to see what was there and then…everything went black.


The big disaster by Adam Taylor

As I entered the bakery I smelt the cupcakes and bread mixed to make the sweetest smell.  The factory was enormous -trays and trays of freshly baked goods.  The factory began to rumble, the icing fell onto the floor flooding the factory.  I ran out.  The factory exploded.  Kaboom!


The cream disaster by Ben Margiotta


There was cream all over the town.  It was like a flood but of course cream.

“What are we going to do??!!”

The cream got bigger and faster!!!  The police came bursting through.

“We’re saved!” everybody screamed repeatedly.


Cupcake World by Aimee Watson

When I woke up I saw a giant cupcake in my room.  I walked up to it and I got teleported to cupcake world.  I ate twenty one cupcakes and then I felt sick.  My sick somehow turned into rainbows.  I liked that.  Then I ate more cupcakes.


Cupcake Island by Flo Kirkpatrick

One day I was on my sponge boat.  It was rocking a bit more than usual.  The sea was made out of creamy blue icing.  The waves got bigger and suddenly the sponge tipped.  I fell on a sponge island.  I stood up.  What should I do next?
