A most mouth-watering opening.
Each of those flowers is hoof-made.
Mr and Mrs.Cake admiring their latest creation.
This has to be the best cake ever.
We are glad you agreed to help us, Pinkie!
We need to get that cake moving!
A heavy cake indeed
Considering he was able to pull Berry Punch's house with no problem, is the cake made of dense electron molecular pieces of a white dwarf?
That's mighty heavy, right Big McIntosh?
Flashing helmet is ready.
Hmm, I wonder who or what those hearts on Berry Punch's sign are for
Lead the way, Pinkie.
That cake there, is mighty heavy.
The cake barely stays put.
Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash are needed.
A Little Pegasistance
Nighty night Mr. Cake. (Cake faint count: 1).
Always adorkably willing to help!
A nice protective spell, just to be safe
Too much stress on poor Mr. Cake. (Cake faint count: 2).
Because this is really going to help.
It's always best to have super, duper extra measures of assurance.
Come on, we're almost there.
Could someone get Mr. Cake a paper bag to breathe into?
Now all we need to do is...
Third time's the charm (Cake faint count: 3).
Poor Big Mac. He's so shy he's hiding behind the credits.
Hmmm. Ehrm, what's he doing now?
Oh. I see. He's telling the ponies to shut it or else he's gonna break in.
At least, everypony else is settled.
"I'm sure the festivites will be just lovely!"
Applejack jabbed Rarity in good faith.
Hey! Why did you do that!?
Don't worry Rarity it won't leave a mark.
She loves that cake.
Applejack about to touch the cake.
"All that rich creamy goodness of the marzipan, combined with the tart tanginess of the mascarpone, blended perfectly with the smooth, silky sweetness of the meringue. That's why I call the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness the "MMMM"."
Guarding this cake, will be a piece of cake.
Applejack sure do love them MMMMs.
They're all after the cake.
Gustave's delicious and blinding Eclaires
Real Bakers always bring their own dramatic lighting
(twizzle de moustache) Nnyeah, shee?
It is my Exquisite Eclairs that shall win the day!
Joe has arrived.
The power of an average joe?
Hmm, I never would have thought that a city made of doughnuts would need sprinkles to stand out...
FOREVER! (Pinkie: Hey, that's what I said!)
The mousse moose.
So very life-like!
I am Mulia Mild
And this is my mousse moose
Welcome to Iron Chef!!
You can stay up if you want to Pinkie, but I'm pretty beat.
Nopony gets passed me!
"Sooooo." I can care less, right?
I'm not sure they're the ones you want to have help guard the cake....
They want to laugh.
Look at the look on Fluttershy's face.
But, those bakers, are gonna ruin the cake!
If you wanna stay up all night, than you can.
"I'll show them!"
"I'll stay up all night to protect you!"
On cake guarding duty.
Must stay awake...
"Stop, you saboteur!
Chasing throughout the train!
"I have you now!
Where is the pony?
What was that noise?
"I got away with it! Aww yeah!"
I'm just shoveling coal... um... if that's all right with you.
Oh, this can't be good.
You know, Pinkie. It would be less dark if you open your eyes.
How'd you get uneven?
"Overreacting my hoof."
Gotta stay vigilant.
Rise and shine, Pinkie Pie, rise and shine...
Pinkie is best dog.
That adoring grin as she finds delight in the delicious appearance of the MMMM!
Whoa! Twilight has wrinkles!
As long as the MMMM Cake is okay, so is our chance of winning the bakery contest!
You'd better hold off on giving yourself an award just yet, Pinkie.
The cake is awry.
The Pinkie Pie scream of FAIL!
Mrph. Who dareth waketh us?!
"It's the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness!
"You mean who did it."
Now you mean whodunit.
Pinkie once again
demonstrates that she is a Yoshi
This is a bubbly kind of face distortion.
Pinkie dubs Twilight the Watson
Who asks silly questions with obvious answers
I could take you seriously Pinkie, but I won't.
My pipe needs bubble mix...
Shall we search for clues? Please say yes...
"No! 'Cause I know who did it!"
Everypony gasp! Oh and also the Griffon and Mule too.
Rarity looks nice with the way her mane covers her right eye.
Yeah Rainbow Dash looks more annoyed than surprised.
Applejack see's some weird stuff going on.
that's quite the saying for this show.
How would he even? Oh forget it
And the fate of Miss Pie was never revealed.
What a gruesome development this is!
That scenario made absolutely NO SENSE!
"What do you mean, lowly assistant?"
For one thing, if you were tied to the tracks, how are you even here?
Hmmm.... an unexpectedly good point...
The cake was BITTEN, NOT sliced by a buzzsaw!
Pinkie apparently lacks a short term memory, as afterward everyone of her theories still includes the cake being sliced.
The likely suspects on the train.
Pinkie is doing something.
"It was Joe!"
Wait, where do I see this before?
My name is Joe, Donut Joe.
Hey don't disturb meh!
Licensed to jelly
Shaken, not stirred.
Makes the best table
Secret Agent Joe, On the move!
Who made this hole Eh?
Huh, what does this ball thing do?
So that's what that ball does... Makes stink
Reaction to gas
Pinkie Derp Strikes again!
I think he is really ready to eat cake.
Why would he use his mouth and hooves when he has magic? Oh well
Why do all of these end in the cake being cut?
Oh you studly stallion you!
"There is no laserbeam security system!"
"Pinkie!" Oh look its a flying hat.
"He's big, gruff, and messy!"
Rarity stating how Pony Joe will look good in a tuxedo.
Pony Joe, pleased at the idea that Rarity would find him dapper in a tuxedo.
Masti Wuff's Masti... Joe
move silent, move swift!
Ninja frying pan strike!
Another case of Cartoon Logic: Using a Katana/Ninjato without hands.
And now... THE CAKE! HI YAAAA!!!
*SLASH SLASH SLASH*
Can you hear it? The voice... OF THE WIND!
"Look at her!!"
Aww! Dosen't Dashy look cute here?
Rarity and Fluttershy see how yummy the éclairs are.
Hello Mister tall, dark, and sugary
The other baked goods are ruined!
It's time to switch roles.
There we go.
Let's solve this crime.
Twi has a bubbly personality
"You're not accusing me, are you?"
"I saw a silhouette in the moonlight!"
Pinkie literally retracing her steps
"And then, I chased the culprit down the train towards the caboose..."
...but when I got there he was gone. "
Evidence gathered from the caboose.
"I heard somepony else in the dessert car, and chased them up to the engine."
"But, when I got there, all I saw was the conductor shoveling coal."
There is evidence in this hat.
Pinkie wants to be the detective again.
I can almost see now.
Searching for clues.
Just so ya know, Twilight, I would seriously recommend...
Better let me handle this.
"The curtains mysteriously closed, all on their own."
"I saw that the portrait by the door was all crooked."
"What is that?"
The final piece to the puzzle is gathered.
Pinkie is angry that she did not get to see the clues.
"I was here guarding the cake the rest of the night."
"I slept by the cake the rest of the night."
"And when you woke up, half the cake was gone?"
Clue one: a BLUE feather!
Ha! I knew it was you...
He doesn't HAVE blue feathers...
He was dying his feathers! ... or not...
Look up, Pinkie...
Rainbow Dash is busted.
"But I don't even like cake...?"
Okay! Case is solved!
Case NOT solved!
Deduction of Twilight.
In the envelope...
Clue two: a strand of PINK hair!
Oho... what is this?
I knew it! That pink strand came from your rainbow-colored mane!
I don't HAVE pink hair in my mane, genius!
Maybe it's a wig! ... or not...
Common sense, Pinkie!
Wait... that's no conductor...
So it was YOU!
Will you PLEASE let me finish!?
There is one last thing bugging me...
A glowing horn in the darkness...
Sorry, no night-vision goggles for you
No so great escape...
What's on the painting?
Clue three: an EYELASH!
Rarity, I noticed you changed your mane-style lately...
I don't think Twilight is admiring Rarity's new hair do.
"Is it a crime!"
"Why I think it is a crime not to!"
Rarity's natural eye.
Eeyup, Rarity's busted.
Rarity posing for dramatic effect.
They're looking right?
"Oh and I..."
"Took a bite out of the cake."
You mad Twilight?
Rainbow Dash confesses she too took a bite out of the cake.
"You just made it sound so...Delectable"
Eye to eye with Rainbow Dash.
"I only meant to take..."
"A little ladylike bite."
"It was so good!"
"Yeah! I just dove right in!"
3 very sorry ponies.
"At least this case is finally solved!"
"But it isn't!"
What about the other desserts?
One thing to do. "Look for clues."
You're the detective now, Pinkie.
"It was none other than...
And how did I find out?
Well, it's because "Gustav has...
...mousse in his moustache!"
...has éclairs in his hair!"
"And Mulia has...
...sprinkles in her wrinkles!"
Now how can we enter the competition?
"I think we can fix that."
Come on everypony, its time for the contest.
