The Life Of A Cupcake


Published: May 2014

They put me in the oven to bake.
Me, a deprived and miserable cake.
Feeling the heat, I started to bubble.
Watching the others, I knew I was in trouble.

They opened the door and I started my life.
Frosting me with a silver knife,
Decorating me with candy jewels.
The rest of my batch looked like fools.

Lifting me up, she took off my wrapper.
Feeling the breeze, I wanted to slap her.
Opening her mouth with shiny teeth inside,
This was the day this cupcake died.

This is a great poem, and it's funny and great to use. We're doing a mock Poetry Out Loud competition and it helped me to the championship round with another poem's help, "Dumb User-Smart Phone" by Rick W. Cotton. Sarah Greer choose a great time to write a poem and a great subject. I also love cupcakes. Keep writing great poems, Sarah.

I am a home baker and am prone to feeling overwhelmed when I am baking batches of 60+ cupcakes. This poem had me laughing so hard that now I will remember it every time I am baking cupcakes! :)

It's such a funny poem. It made me hungry and thirsty, so I immediately ate a cupcake and drank a cup of water. I saw this poem and just had to print it. Thank you.

I really liked this poem. It makes so much sense! Also, the words rhyme perfectly. Some poems are pathetic because all they do is try to make the words rhyme, but this one is great! You get sucked right in! I felt like this was like a mini story that rhymes.

Really creative. I really like how the writer had thought about a real cupcake's life and what the cupcake thought when it is about to be eaten alive. I think the cupcake is dressed in a clown vest in a three wheeled joke car!
