Plot synopsis[edit]

Kirby and Waddle Dee visit the Sweets Island on a sunny day in a hot air balloon. They see a cake castle and chocolate river, and taste the sugary clouds on their way. They eventually reach a sweets factory, where they find some strange workers. The factory is a dusty mess, which they find to be odd. Kirby realizes that the workers' glasses are fogged up and cleans them. The workers see the mess, and together with Kirby and Waddle Dee, they clean up the factory.

After they clean up, the two friends stay to help the workers make and come up with ideas for some sweets. Kirby gives in to temptation and gobbles up a pink flan, then buries himself in pink desserts. Once all is finished, they decorate the backyard and arrange the desserts. The residents of the Sweets Island visit, and a party begins. As the day comes to an end, the workers thank Kirby and Waddle Dee, and the two depart while savoring a star-shaped strawberry donut.


Lists of food items, primarily desserts, can be found at the start and end of the book. Many of them are references to elements of the game series, while some are also borrowed from the original Kirby Café menu.
