Bundt

Today you get to meet, Bundt—the wisest cake in the kitchen!

He sees everything that goes on and is critical to Preston’s jurney being a success!

Hello! I feel like I’ve known Preston forever. That’s probably because I knew his real parents long before he came and visited me. They were very young when they met at the mixer, where they fell in love. Though they loved each other very much, they knew they were too young to raise little Preston, so they sent him to the nicest, funnest family they knew in the Kitchen—the O’Nilla’s. What a wise choice for such young ones, themselves. I hope you’ll all read Preston’s journey of becoming a true O’Nilla!

Frenchie + Bean

Meet the youngest of the O’Nilla family—Frenchie and Bean.

Frenchie is a party organizer! And Bean is the most spontaneous of the family, always ready to bring the fun!

Frenchie: I’m so excited for the party! Look at how many people are here!

Bean: Party! Party! Party!

Frenchie: I have everything ready for them. Here’s the schedule:

Kickstarter? Check.

Video? Check.

Facebook page? Check.

Twitter account? Check.

Google +? Check.

Bean: It looks like you’ve got everything set up, so let’s get to the real point here. It’s time to party! Everyone join in.

Party! Party! Party!

The Beet-niks

Meet the Beet-niks! This crew hangs out at the Crisper a lot because they’re really cool! They’re into poetry and philosophy and really teach Preston a lot on his journey about brotherhood.

Can I get a beet? Snap. snap. snap. snap.

Preston’s our friend ’cause he’s got a pure heart.
He’s on a journey — in the cupcake box it starts.
He’s an O’Nilla but he’s been adopted
And he thinks this has something to do with the way he’s acting.
It doesn’t take long before he finds his way
And realizes that cupcakes bring the party every day!

 

 

Meet Suga’!

Today, you get to meet our friend, Suga’. She’s straight out of the cookie jar and loves to have company. If you’ve got problems, she’ll be the first to lend you an ear and give a crumb of advice.

Well, howdy-do, y’all! I am so excited you’re here!

If you’ve got some time, you should pull up a chair and have a chat with me and my friends. I hear you’ve already met my good friends Milk and Preston. I remember when Preston came to me, just a wee little cake and now he’s really come into his own.

Oh. That’s all the time you have for me today? Well, come back tomorrow and meet some more of my friends!

Meet our friend, Milk!

Meet Milk! He’s a little gruff on the outside, but he warms up quickly. They say milk and sweets go hand-in-hand. Well, maybe that’s why Milk has such a sweet tooth. Milk is the protector of the fridge.

Hello! Where are those brownies you promised me? Oh, thanks. I kind of thought it was a trick when I saw the note saying to meet here for brownies.

Oh, no! Are you going to make me talk to all these people? Don’t even think … mmm … these brownies sure are good.

OK—I can tell you a morsel. Preston is on a journey and he meets some friends along the way. I’m the guy who shows him his way through the fridge. Speaking of fridge—it’s getting warm in here, so I better get back there before my mood turns sour.

Kickstarter Kickoff!

The party is just getting started!

We have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help us get the book printed. Basically, we’re hoping those of you who can will go ahead and pre-order a digital or physical copy of the book so we can get all 1,000 of the first run of books and CDs printed. Watch the video to learn more!

The book is planned to be released this summer. We have about 45 days to raise all the money or we don’t get any of it. Whether you plan to order a book or not, you should head over to Kickstarter to download a chapter of the book and an audio reading of the book and one song.

 

 

 

Meet Preston

Meet Preston the main character of “Jump Little Cake, Jump.”

Preston was adopted by the O’Nillas, a sweet family, who you’ll meet soon enough. You can tell Preston from the rest of the family because he has freckles and glasses. Preston is a little shy, so make him feel welcome!

Um. Hi everyone! Is anyone out there? I’m told the Internet is a big place with millions of people, but all I see is this screen here.

Anyway, I live with a nice family called the O’Nillas. They throw parties all the time! They’re really nice to me. Sometimes I wish I could be more like my sister, Frenchie, or brother, Bean. They really know how to throw a party! I’m more of a wall flour. Hey—why all the snickering, guys? Oops. They say it’s wallflower, whatever that is.

Well, the O’Nillas are calling me for the mid-morning party, so I need to get my sprinkles ready. Come back soon to meet my friend, Suga’.

Twitter a-go Little Cakes!
