Five kinds of cupcake (A bakesale in 5 acts)

Five kinds of cupcake
Four hours of baking*
Three trips to the car
Two bucks each
One dozen left
One successful bake-sale
One hundred thirty cupcakes sold
One happy girl

*Really, four hours is a gross underestimate and was used only to flow well with the rest of the post. It was really something like 8 or 9 hours all told, with making frosting and decorating the cupcakes. But whats a few hours here or there?
