Just Desserts by MLP-Silver-Quill Just Desserts by MLP-Silver-Quill
As you can judge by the content, I had an issue with the moral of "MMMystery on the Friendship Express". Fun episode, but not my favorite.

A shame that the episode's been out for three weeks and I'm only just now getting this done. Very involved, off-on project. I am not a fast artist.

Some special thanks went into this piece:
First, to :iconcapt-nemo:, who created these excellent Illustrator Vector Tutorials, which helped me streamline my work.
And to :icongameguy001: who created the Sweet Apple Acres background.

Everything else was sketched by hand, drawn in Illustrator, and assembled in Photoshop.

EDIT: I wake up this morning and find that the activity on this piece has sky-rocketed. What is this the cause of this good fortune?

Equestria Daily! Woo-hoo! My thanks to the website and all the people who took time to come by and check out this artwork. And thanks to those who found, faved, or commented on this piece before then. Awesome way to start the day!

Wait, why is Pinkie in trouble? She didn't eat any until it had already won!

This must have been one of your earlier comics, considering this is back in Season 3, but it was nice, the soapbox gag was good for a chuckle and seeing Mr Cake be something other than panicking or nervous is nice.

Can I use this as a cover for my fanfic which pretty much has almost the same thing happen?

I don't think using a comic as a cover for your fan fic would be good. People would be expecting the comic word-for-word or mistakenly think you drew this.

-_- But I can't find ANY fanart AT ALL that would fit with the theme of RD, Rarity and Shy getting theirs for betraying the Cake's trust of Pinkie Pie.

Even so, they would've cost them, it's the fact that they did it, the one rule they had, and they broke it.

I bet not only do they have to clean up, but also have to pay as well.

Nice comic. I think the episode was a bit lackluster too and this seems like a deleted scene when you think about it. I do think it was kinda weird that Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie got off scot free so I feel this is an appropriate ending. :)

I wondered how the cake made them pay. But why is Pinkie being punished?

Pinkie devoured what was left of the cake before anyone besides Celestia got a bite.

I get that it was supposed to be a funny ending to the episode, yet the more I thought about it the more it seemed selfish. Twilight and Applejack came along because they were promised the chance to try that cake, plus it would probably help drum up business if other ponies tried it. So... I didn't think it was funny.

Wait, you mean Applejack eating the cake? Sorry, but that wound up on the cutting room floor so I don't view that as canon.

She did eat the entire hybrid monstrosity before her friends could get a slice. I know that was meant to be silly and lighthearted, but afterwards I thought on it and decided that it came across as really selfish.
