Wednesday Words: Jenny

Jenny handed the blueprints to the carpenter.  “Run!  We have two hours!” Then she turned to the expectant faces and knew in an instant that they were clinging to her every word, every command.

“You!  Over there!  Crystallize these!...And you! Make this and pay attention to the fragrance!  Pumpkin and Vanilla, yes, with vanilla beans!”  More commands, running all the time.


When the timer showed that there were only 10 minutes left, the carpenter wheeled in her design:  a haunted house with lots and lots of shelves!  Perfect.

Jenny’s team began loading the cupcakes, all decorated in different morbid designs.  Jack-o-lanterns, spiders, and ghosts—they all raced to load the cupcakes onto the shelves.
“10—9—8—7—6—5—4—3—2—1  And bakers, stand away from your displays!”

Jenny shivered in expectation.  Would she win the $10,000?  Would she?!!

Again, thank you to Delores @Under the Porchlight  for provided these challenging words!  Please go to her site to see what other writers have created!


  1. I hope so. Jenny's ideas were brilliant - nearly as much so as yours.

  2. She should win the prize for her cupcakes and you should win the prize for the story.
    I have to say, I think this weeks stories were the best yet.

  3. she will lose thanks to a cheater then the cheat will be caught and then she'll win

  4. Jenny! Meet Gordon Ramsay! And Jenny, please keep him in America, thank you.

    Cup Cake wars and the winner is..

    Nice one, Susan.

    Gary :)

  5. Jenny unfortunately lost as it was supposed to be a Christmas show, even if they did tape it in October.

  6. I felt the tension here as they raced against the clock.


Go won' t hurt...I'd love to hear what you think!
