In this magical fairy tale, the Witch is alone AGAIN on her birthday, so she bakes a Cake Girl to sing, dance, and do all the housework for her. The Witch tells Cake Girl she is going to EAT her, but clever Cake Girl turns the tables on her captor and shows her instead how it is possible and EVEN fun to be a nice person. The finale is a cornucopia of magic tricks and laughter, and is the best birthday either of them have ever had.
