{ Let Mingle Monday commence! }

{ Here we go! }

In the middle of chic San Francisco was a brand new bakery called Sophie's Sweets. Owned and operated by the young and fabulous Sophie herself, the place was definitely the new city hot spot.

Business had been drastically picking up due to great media coverage in the last week, so Sophie knew she needed to higher some help quick! Unfortunately, it was Saturday, and she knew that was the busiest day at the bakery.

Sophie was preparing her signature buttercream frosting when a lady frantically rushed in to the bakery with an emergency request. "QUICK! Can you help me? I need 3,000 of your famous...

Happy Mingling!

  6. Sophie knew she could not say no to a benefit for kids who are going to help in the gulf, how could she? it was a wonderful thing.

    "When do you need the mini cupcakes by?" Sophie aske dthe woman.

    "tomorrow afternoon" she responded

    Sophie immediately knew she was in trouble because she didn't have enough help to make all those cupcakes by tomorrow.

    Before she could agree to make all those cupcakes Sophie excused herself and ran into the back room and picked up the phone...

  8. and it was the bakery supply letting her know that the special flour she used to make her cupcakes so addicting was on backorder. Distraught, Sophie racked her brain to think of...

    [The Apple Doesn't Fall Far]

  9. ...what she would use to replace her special flour AND still have delicious cupcakes!

    As if on cue, five of her bestest girlfriends all went into her bakery.

    "Thank goodness you're all here!" Sophie exclaimed. "I need your help!"

    "Of course we're here," replied one of the girls, Aria. "But I hope you didn't forget our plans for today. We're here to pick you up since we are going...."


  10. Sophie, feeling a bit overwhelmed at this unexpected request, had just opened her mouth to answer the frantic lady when suddenly...

  12. "to the beach to get our tan on!"

    "I can't girls! I just got an order for 3,000 cupcakes and the flour I normally use is all out! You all have to help me!" Sophie replied frantically.



  13. "Us? Help you? You know none of us haven't seen the inside of a kitchen.... well, our whole lives" said one friend. And noticing the agreeing looks from the others, Sophie knew she was in trouble. But she knew she couldn't do it alone so she decided she'd have to instruct her friends on how to......

  14. roll up thier sleeves and get baking! Sophie had been baking since such an early age she knew all the tricks to get her friends up to speed on making these 3,000 cupcakes!

    Thankfully Sophie was friendly with the bread baker down the street - so she sent Aria to hunt down some of that special flour.

    Then Sophie got aprons for her friends and....

    And the baker came running in saying they needed some of this special flour and did she have any to spare...

  18. "You're off your rocker! Go jump in a hole!", Sophie responded. She usually wasn't that abrupt, but tension was running thin due to the circumstances. Suddenly, the phone rang, and who else was it but the lady who started this mess in the first place...

  19. Sophie was so flustered that she dropped the phone as she tried to answer. She wiped her hair out of her face with flour-covered hands and reached for the phone but not before noticing that...
