sarah | 13 comments All I remember about this picture book is that they use too many ingredients or possibly too much yeast and the cake they are making takes over the entire forest/town/village. Can't remember if it's people or animals who are the main characters, but in the end the entire town/forest gets to eat this delicious cake. I can picture the images so clearly but for the life of me I cannot find this!

When did you read it or when was it published?
Style of illustrations?

sarah | 13 comments I read it around 1985-1990 and I remember the illustrations as just sort of soft woodland pictures... very traditional illustrations.

sarah | 13 comments No it was more like a cake/bread without frosting that expanded and took over the entire town!

It reminds me of The Giant Jam Sandwich, but I'm not sure the plot fits.
