A bear and his mother bake little cakes and deliver them to their friends like May Day baskets on a snowy morning.

Kinda boring.

So I started to imagine the deserted snowy streets were a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and Mrs. Bear had been tasked by the remaining survivors to bake them all poisoned cakes, a merciful last meal to end their suffering. Only little Sam has been left out of the plan and is excited by the deliveries and the little cake awaiting him at home.

It happened one winter morning, when the moon was still up, making moonbeams and shadows on Plum Street. In the little white house, Mrs. Bear and Sam were baking golden-brown cakes for their friends. "Come on, cakes," whispered Sam. "I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait!" At last Mrs. Bear sniffed the air and said, "I believe our cakes are ready." But who will go out in the snow and carry the tasty treats to each sleepy house?
