A Tale Of A Cupcake

Austinites publish children’s book via Kickstarter campaign

Audio book features The Tiny Bots, Kindie Rocker Gene Davis and
MIX 94.7 producer Kelly Whiteneck

Austin, TX (February 7, 2013)—Austinites Lindsay O’Neal, Antonio Delgado and Tiffany Young wrote and illustrated a children’s book, “Jump Little Cake, Jump!” which comes with an audio book including original songs. The trio funded the book, set to come out in November, through a $7,500 Kickstarter campaign in April.

The book is about Preston, a pumpkin spice cupcake adopted into the O’Nilla family—a family of vanilla cupcakes, who like to party all day every day. Preston feels out of place in this family of cupcakes and goes on a journey to find his true place in the great, big kitchen. Along the way of finding his true flavor, he meets friends who guide him on his way, including Suga’, the Southern down-home Sugar cookie, Milk, the gatekeeper for the fridge and Bundt, the all-knowing cake that watches the kitchen omnipotently from the top of the fridge.

The book is a hardback, 56-page, full-color, glossy aimed at 4-9 year olds. The book is $17.99 and includes a CD with audio and songs—narrated by Kelly Whiteneck, a producer at MIX 94.7. Gene Davis of the ‘kindie’ rock band The Que Pastas, http://thequepastas.com/home.cfm, is also featured on the audio book.

Lindsay O’Neal hand painted each page of the illustrations that accompany the book. Musician Antonio Delgado of Oh Antonio and his Imaginary Friends and The Tiny Bots co-wrote the book and its music with former Community Impact Newspaper editor and reporter Tiffany Young, also of The Tiny Bots.
