Dash the Mint Fairy wants to try something new, but still compete for the Sugar Cup, so she decides to switch places with Cocoa and enter the painting event for herself, while Cocoa enters the sled race, usually Dash's forte.
Dash the Mint Fairy looked around Peppermint Grove. The bright morning light made her mint candy crop sparkle. Each mint was superwhite and just right for picking. She grabbed her harvest basket and started her work.
"Hi, Doopie," Dash said to the tiny chipmunk at her feet. She bent down and held out a mint for the small animal. "Here you go," she said. She watched the red-and-white-striped chipmunk hold the candy in her front paws and take a nibble. "What do you think?"
Doopie's happy squeak made Dash laugh.
"That is how I feel about a fresh mint candy too!" she said. "I'm glad that you agree."
Picking mints from the mint bushes wasn't an easy task. Dash had to reach in under branches to get the best ones. At times like these, she was happy to be a small Candy Fairy.
Dash held up one of the larger mints. She slipped it into her bag. Secretly, she had been painting mints with her new set of white-chocolate paints. She had just started doing this kind of artwork, and she loved it!
Dash the Mint Fairy wants to win a sugar-tastic trophy in this Candy Fairies adventure - but can she try a new event AND win the Sugar Cup?
Every year fairies from all over Sugar Valley compete for the golden Sugar Cup. And Dash the Mint Fairy really wants to win it! Dash always races her sled, and Cocoa always paints a picture, but this year the two fairy friends decide to trade places: Cocoa will enter the Frosted Mountain race and Dash will enter the Art Treat. But as the big day nears, Dash isn't so sure that painting is her speed, and she worries she may lose the Sugar Cup. Was it a mistake to try something new and different?
