Pearl Babblebrook is the worst cook in Sylvania. Her Carrot Cakes are dry, her Apple Crumbles are burnt and once she even forgot to put turnips in her Turnip Casserole! Her poor husband always eats whatever she puts in front of him though – Cliff loves his wife very much and he would hate to hurt her feelings after all these years. Everyone in the Babblebrook family is just as kindhearted and Crystal even pretends to take Pearl’s advice when she’s writing one of her cookery books. Of course, for the sake of his business Rocky has to be a little more practical. He allows Pearl to sell cakes in the Babblebrook General Store but not to make any of them – he has his reputation to consider, after all!
