My husband and I have our own bakery business. It's small, but it gets us by and we love it.
We always make a point to be kind and give individual attention to each of our customers.
The way its set up- since we're still in a rental space- is that we don't have wall and doorway connecting the kitchen to the shop. Just a counter. So everyone sees everything that we bake, but I have no problem with that.
Earlier today, a mother came in with her daughter. The kid must have been no more than 4 or 5 years old. The mother said that her daughter wants to see how cupcakes were made. My first thought was "Come on lady, you can't show your kid how to make cupcakes? That's a super simple home project." I didn't say that of course, and there was no one in the shop so I didn't mind showing her. So I walked around the counter and crouched down to eye level with the little girl and said "Okay, I'll show you!" Then, just to make conversation, I asked her "Why do you want to know how to make cupcakes?" The whole time I guess I had noticed, but didn't think much of it, but she was holding a doll or something close to her chest. After I asked her that, she got the biggest grin on her face and said "Because that's what Pinkie Pie does!" And then took her doll away from her chest and showed me. It was one of the MLP happy meal Pinkie Pie Toys.
Her mom laughed and said "Oh, she really loves My Little Pony. I guess one of the ponies is a baker."
I saw a once in a million year opportunity. Completely embarrass myself to make this child's day? Yep. Totally worth it.
I had been previously making cupcakes before they walked into the shop, so I had all of my ingredients out anyhoof. I showed her behind the counter and started singing, while pushing ingredients toward the middle of the table.

All you have to do is take a cup of flour, add it to the mix!
Now just take a little something sweet, not sour,
A bit of salt--just a pinch!
Baking these treats is such a cinch,
Add a teaspoon of vanilla!
Add a little more, and you count to four
And you never get your fill of--
Cupcakes, so sweet and tasty,
Cupcakes--don't be too hasty,
Cupcakes! Cupcakes, cupcakes, CUPCAKES!

Then added the extra lyrics that my daughter and I came up with when she helps me bake cupcakes.

Then you head on over to the oven and click 325 on the dial.
Then you grab your whisk and mix the batter- this could take quite a while.
Making cupcakes is so much fun,
Don't forget to thaw your icing!
Mix it all up and then fill up the cups,
Baking is why I sing!
Cupcakes, so sweet and tasty,
Cupcakes--don't be too hasty,
Cupcakes! Cupcakes, cupcakes, CUPCAKES!

The little girl couldn't stop giggling with joy. The cutest thing ever. Then I showed her how to make cupcakes, and let her ice one and put sprinkles on it and take it home.

Her mom said that's the nicest thing a stranger has ever done for her. I mentioned that I have a 4 year old daughter that I make cupcakes with.
She's coming over for a playdate with my daughter tomorrow after preschool.

I'm a good mother.

you kick flank op ^^
>> No. 2512241
I know OP isn't here anymore, but really doesn't matter. It's the rare perfect set up to an amazing moment. Brony, with a cupcake shop has a women and daughter, who loves PP, ask how cupcakes are made... Thats...

Thats why I love things. This fandom included, this undoes so much bad stuff about the fandom the obnocious people, the ragers, even the r34'rs.

This is why OP is awesome, and that is why this needs an /arch/.

It's apparently a bad thing to display any emotion other than schadenfreude on the internet, so, if you're mad, you 'lose'.

It's very stupid, but so is everything else about internet culture.

Well, if I broke into a bakery to sing to an abducted child I'd get the cops called on me too. It's all in the details.

>She owned the bakery, you didn't.
>It was day for Anna, middle of the night for you.
>The parent brought her daughter in, you stole the child.
>Anna Cake was singing, you were mumbling to your self in a corner.

They sound similar until you get to the details.
