MN Teen Bakes Thousands of Cupcakes to Take Family to Disney World
Usually it's the parents who take the kids to Disney World for a birthday. In this case, Minnesota teenager Isaiah Tuckett took his family.
Tuckett, from Madison, MN, recently made national headlines after taking his parents, siblings and some extended family members to Disney World for his 14th birthday.
How'd he have that much money?
He baked cupcakes. A lot of them!
According to Fox 7, it all started with the teen's grandmother's 85th birthday.
“When I was growing up, I always liked being in the kitchen, and I made them for my grandma's 85th birthday. And then people really liked them, and they just asked if they could order them.”
That one birthday led to more opportunities including baking for more birthdays, baby showers, graduations, weddings and more. His family was very supportive.
"You know what," his mom said, "if that's something that you want to do, we would be willing to buy all the ingredients and so that everything that you earn...your profits, could be put into a savings account to earn that trip."
According to Fox7, it took about a year and some 3,500 cupcakes, but this Minnesota teen's magic in the kitchen clearly paid off!
