Be  true.  be  you.

"A sweet follow-up to DiPucchio and Wight's Everyone Loves Bacon. As in its predecessor, humorous, food-based wordplay abounds in the clever text about beloved, anthropomorphic Cupcake in her cafe community. After the opening, titular line, word-balloon text affirms Coffee's love for Cupcake ("A latte!") and (wedding) Cake's, too ("I do"). Throughout, Wight's illustrations augment the humor with clever touches such as the latte-art heart on Coffee's surface. Meanwhile, Brownie is "nuts about her," and Angel Food Cake loves everyone. But the Tarts are jealous. Their snide comments sting, especially because general insecurity is Cupcake's bugaboo: "Cupcake worried a lot about what everyone thought, so she worked extra hard at being extra perfect." Alas, her striving and declarations of effort eventually grate on the others, who begin to avoid her. Feeling "crummy," Cupcake finds inspiration in words from, who else, (fortune) Cookie: "Be true. BE YOU."  A picture-book treat." —Kirkus Reviews

Cupcake dresses to impress. Her smile is brilliant. Her wave is flawless. She even wears a tiara. Everyone loves a tiara. And Cupcake wants everyone to love her. But when she tries too hard to make everyone happy, she crumbles under the pressure and realizes that sometimes just being yourself is enough.
