- Hey, Grandma.

- Hey.

- Hey Grandpa.

- Morning, Grace.

I'm just about to set up.

Let's do it.

Yes, yes.

I hear you, my old friend.

Oh, be quiet.

Are you a baking wiz

between the ages of 8-12.

Well, MasterChef Junior baking

edition is looking for you.

We're now accepting recipes

submissions for 2015 competition.

Do you have what it takes

to be a MasterChef?

You should be on that show.

You are one of the

best bakers I know.

You're just saying that

because you're my Grandma.


I'm saying it

because it's true.

And because

I'm your Grandmother.

- Can't wait to watch it though.

- Mm-Hm.

- So. What do you think?

- Woo.

If they taste as good as they smell,

I would say you found a winner.

I hope Mom and Dad

feel the same.

Bye, Grandma.

See you.



Thank you.

- These are fantastic.

- They're so good.

Well. You guys deserve

fresh baked scones.

Have I ever told you that you're

the best parents in the world.

- Mm-Hm

- Okay.

What's up?


Can't a girl just make breakfast

for her awesome family.

We're not total suckers.

You know I love scones.

So, honey.

What is it?



might be one...

teensy-weensy little thing.

I need a new bike.

Well, what's wrong with

the bike you have?


Ella, Maddy and I want to sign up for the

Berwick bike race at the end of the summer.

And I do a lot better

in the race, with a new

faster, cooler bike.

But new bikes are expensive.

Sweetie. It's okay if you

want to sign up for the race,

but if you want a new bike,

you're gonna find a way

to pay for it yourself.

But my allowance will never

cover a brand new bike.

How am I suppose

to do that?

I don't know.

But I'll tell you what.

I'll pay a million

bucks for these.

- Really?

- Mm-Hm, at least.

That's it.

Dad, you're a genius.

I got to go.


I'm going to start my own

baking business this summer.

Oh, that's wonderful.

And I wanted to know if it would be okay

for me to bake in the kitchen here?

Is-Is it okay?

Of course it's okay.

- Our kitchen is your kitchen.

- Thanks, Grandpa.

It makes me so happy that

baking is a big part of this family.

You, your Aunt Sophie.

Do you ever wished that Sophie would stay here

at the bakery instead of moving to Paris.


She's got her own bakery now.

I talked to her this morning and it

sounds like she's getting pretty tired.

The baby is due pretty soon,

isn't it.

Yes, it is.

I wished I could help her.

- Owning a bakery is tough.

- But it's worth it. Right?

You guys know how much I want to

run this place when I'm older.


If it's still standing by then.

Everyday I walk in and look up to

make sure the ceiling is still here.


Tell us, Grace.

Why would you like to

run this bakery one day.

I don't know.


I guess it's

my dream.

I love baking more than

anything else

It's like, when I'm baking

time just stops.

And I'm casting

some kind of spell

All I have to do is follow

the recipe exactly and

it can make something

magical happen.

I love it. And I want to spend

the rest of my life doing it.


That's why for the business,

I'm going to do a ton of research.

That way, we can get started

as soon as summer starts.

Do your friends know that they just

become your business partners.

Not yet.


They want new bikes too.


I'm sure they'll be

total psyched about it.

Okay. So, what's the big news

that you just had to tell us.

Well. You know how we're trying to

find something fun to do this summer?

Wait a minute.

I thought we already did.


Math camp.

Math camp?

Multiplications and mosquitoes?

No, thank you. I still say we

do Art Adventure at the Wye.

Those are great ideas.


Here's an even better one.

Something that'll be fun and

it just might buy new bikes.


We're going to start

our own business.



What kind of business

should we do?

We can tutor math.


No more math.


How about we start a

dog walking service.

- Great idea.

- Yeah!

That's not a bad idea.


I've already figured it all out.

Welcome to

"The New England Cupcakery".

Our new cupcake business.


We don't know how to bake.

I can teach you guys.

Wouldn't it be easier

just to walk some dogs?

Come on, take a second.

Picture it.

Rows of cupcakes.

Pink. Yellow.

Rainbow frosting for birthdays.

Red, white and blue

for 4th of July.

And, not just plain

chocolate and vanilla.

I'm talking butter cookies and cream.

Red velvet.

The possibilities are endless.

A delicious wonderland of

cupcakery goodness.


- Okay!

- Okay!

- Yeah!

- Yeah!

Yeah! But,guys.


There's one more thing and

it's super important.

If we're gonna do this,

we have to do it right.

What do you mean?


There maybe like...

a thousand different ways

to frost a cupcake,

but there's only one

right way to bake one.

And everything has to be perfect.

So, we need to follow

the recipe exactly.

That's how baking works.

This cupcake...

is so GOOD!

Grace, you are a genius.

These are going to make us

a fortune this summer.

- Yeah!

- Hey!

What is all this racket.

Sorry, we don't want to

scare off customers.

Don't worry about that.

There aren't any to scare off.

Why aren't there any customers?

- It's just been a bit slow.

- Oh.


This the cupcakes, beautiful.

Right. We're going

to be gazillionaires.
