All righty then, Big Mac! To the train depot! That's it Big Mac, nice and slow.

Cake? I got it here without a hitch! Now all we have to do is get it in? Season 2 | Episode 24 MMMystery on the Friendship Express Thank you all for helping me get the cake safely on the dessert car.
Thank you for inviting us all to go with you to Canterlot for the National Dessert Competition.
I'm sure the festivities will be just lovely.
Fooey on the festivities, I can't wait to try all those tasty treats! Well, the tastiest treat of all is sure to be the Cake's Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness.
All that rich creamy goodness of the marzipan, combined with the tart tanginess of the mascarpone, blended perfectly with the smooth, silky sweetness of the meringue That's why I call the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness the "MMMM".
It's the most delicious delectable delightful de-lovely cake in Equestria.
And it's sure to win first prize.
This is not so.
For I, Gustave Le Grand, do challenge your crude cake to a duel of delectable delacacies against my exceptionally exquisite éclairs! They will undoubtedly strike down all the competition, winning first prize and crowning me le champion! Not a chance, Le Grand.
Doughnut Joe! What are you doing in Ponyville? Picking up the final all-important ingredient for my contest entry "Doughnutopia"! And with these super-sprinkles, my doughnuts are gonna dunk all the other lousy desserts steal first prize, and make my doughnut shop famous forever! Oh, Joe your dippy doughnuts could never outrun me.
What's your name? I am Mulia Mild.
Behold, my chocolate mousse moose.
It will trample all your treats, be given first prize, and make me the greatest chef in Equestria Madame Mild, you and your mousse moose are mistaken.
Your frou-frou éclairs will never defeat my doughnuts! The Cakes' Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness is going to win! Your simple cake could never take my moose.
Well, it sure looks like we're in for a delicious competition tomorrow.
Maybe we should all settle in for a good night's sleep.
I gotta admit I'm pretty beat.
Yeah, I'm gonna hit the hay myself.
Wait! Didn't you hear those chefs? We have to protect "MMMM".
Mmmm? Mmm hmm.
I know for super sure that "MMMM" is the best dessert in all of Equestria.
And I know that they know it too.
So So one of them is going to sabotage the Cakes' cake tonight! You have to help me stand guard! Pinkie, you're overreacting.
Yeah, those chefs aren't gonna do your cake any harm.
But they are! I just know it.
Fine! If you wanna stand guard, go for it.
We're going to bed.
I'll show them.
I'll stay up all night and protect you.
Nothing and nopony will stop me from keeping you safe.
Stop, you saboteur! I have you now! Thank Celestia, you're okay! But one of those bakers is mixing up something bad.
So I'm not leaving you again, no matter what.
Who turned out the moon? Don't go near that cake, thief! Stop, thief! Oh, are you okay thief? Overreacting my hoof.
I knew I was going to have to keep a close eye on you.
And that's just what I'm gonna do.
The cake! You look mmmm-marvelous.
I know.
I think some congratulations are in order for a job well done.
You better hold off on giving yourself an award just yet Pinkie look! Look at what?! What is it? What happened? It's the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness.
It's been mutilated! Now, we just need to find out who done it.
You mean, who "did it".
Who did-done-dood it.
Well, having read many mystery novels, I know that the only way to discover the culprit is to investigate.
And as chief detective, that's exactly what I'm gonna do.
- You're investigatin'? - Yes! And Twilight shall be my lowly assistant who asks silly questions with obvious answers.
Fine, Pinkie.
Should we start looking for clues? Perfect silly question, my dear Twilight.
Because the obvious answer is Yes? No! 'Cause I know who did it.
Pinkie, how could you possibly know? How could I possibly not know? Clearly, this dastardly deed was done by the baker who knew their dessert could not measure up to the mastery of the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness.
I guess you feared your éclairs lacked flair Gustave! Thus, destroying the cake, and the Cakes' chance of winning the National Dessert Competition.
But it makes no sense! What do you mean, lowly assistant? Well first, if you were tied to the train tracks, how are you now here? Guess that isn't a totally silly question.
And second, the cake hasn't been sliced, it's been bitten.
Just look at the teeth marks! You're right, my fine fellow.
Gustave Le Grand is clearly in the clear.
Which means the "MMMM" was destroyed by another baker.
A baker whose doughnuts are do-nots.
That's right, it was Joe! Or as he's known in the spy world, Mane.
Con Mane.
Crushing the Cakes' chances to win! Pinkie! There is no laser beam security system.
And Joe is not sleek, stealthy Con Mane! He's big, gruff, and messy! Although, you would look rather dapper in a tuxedo.
You may be right, lowly assistant.
May be? Now that I'm taking a closer look at these desserts, I see that one simply cannot look me in the eye.
Pinkie that moose is a mousse! Yes! And the mule behind the moose panicked when she saw the mastery of the "MMMM".
So you're saying that the culprit is Mulia Mild! Putting an end to the Cakes' dreams of taking first prize.
I hope you're proud of yourself, Mulia.
Pinkie, stop! This is ridiculous! Look at her! I guess you're right Thank you! But I was so sure that it was one of the other bitter bakers that destroyed the "MMMM".
That way, their delicious dessert would reign supreme.
I mean, just look at Joe's Doughnutopia.
It's a spectacular city of doughnutty delight, topped temptingly in sprinklicious sprinkles.
And Gustave's éclairs look incredibly edible, with glistening glaziness.
But then, there's Mulia Mild's Mousse Moose.
Why, this mouth-wateringly marvelous mousse moose tempts the taste buds with this silky, smooth, yummy-nummy, chocolateyness.
So, why did this criminal devour the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness while leaving this trio of tasty treats untouched? Now I have no idea who do-doned it! This mystery gets more mysterious every minute.
Well, you have to stop the wild accusations and get to the truth.
Everypony go back to your cars while we do a little investigating.
Okay Pinkie, in order to really solve this mystery, we're going to have to find clues.
Now you were here, at the scene of the crime all night.
You're not accusing me, are you? No! But maybe you saw something that will help us.
I saw a silhouette in the moonlight! Good let's retrace your steps.
Then, I chased the culprit down the train towards the caboose.
But when I got there, he was gone.
Our first clue.
I think I know who did it, Pinkie.
- Already? - Yes.
But I need more evidence to confirm.
Tell me what happened next.
I heard somepony else in the dessert car, and chased them up to the engine.
But, when I got there, all I saw was the conductor shoveling coal.
The conductor, huh? But, that doesn't make any sense.
What happened next, Pinkie? Well I went back to the dessert car.
Yes? The curtains mysteriously closed, all on their own.
Anything else? I heard hoofsteps, a loud thud.
And then they were gone! When I opened the curtains, I saw that the portrait by the door was all crooked.
Oh my, what is that? What next, Pinkie? That's it.
I was here guarding the cake the rest of the night.
I mean I slept by the cake the rest of the night.
And when you woke up, half the cake was gone? Exactly.
By Jove, I think I've got it.
Call everypony back.
We have a cake culprit to catch.
Why are we all here again? I bet you're wondering why you're all here again.
She's good.
We have discovered the true culprit of this cake carnage.
But how? Well you see, when committing a crime, it's crucial that one never leaves behind clues.
Especially an obvious clue like this.
A blue feather.
I knew it was you, Gustave Le Grand.
Pinkie, Gustave doesn't have blue feathers.
No, 'cause he's been dying them! No, Pinkie.
Remember how when you chased the suspect to the caboose, they suddenly disappeared? That's because they flew away.
But the thief did leave a little something behind didn't you, Rainbow Dash? I don't even like cake! So Rainbow Dash did it! Case solved! Case not solved, because when we went to the engine, I saw the conductor's hat.
And inside the hat was this.
So it was you, that pink hair came from your rainbow colored mane! I don't have pink in my mane, Pinkie! So you're wearing a wig? Cut it out! Pinkie, remember? You chased a pony to the engine, where you thought you saw the conductor shoveling coal.
But that wasn't the conductor at all.
It was Fluttershy.
You're going down, Fluttershy.
Pinkie! But then another clue confounded my suspicions.
You were guarding the cake when the curtains mysteriously closed.
But that's no mystery, that's magic.
But when the thief tried to make their great escape, they left a little addition to the portrait.
Has anypony else noticed that Rarity is wearing her hair rather differently today? What? Is it a crime to change one's style every now and again? Why, I think it's a crime not to.
Really? Fine, I'm guilty! I wear false eyelashes.
Oh, and I took a bite of the cake.
So did I.
Oh nuts, so did I.
You just made it sound so delectable.
So tasty.
And boy was it! I only meant to take a little, lady-like bite.
And it was so good.
Yeah, I just dove right in! But I'm really really sorry.
Terribly sorry.
Sorry, Pinkie.
That's okay.
At least this mystery is finally solved.
But it isn't.
We figured out who ate the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness, but we still don't know who devoured the other bakers' goods.
You're right, Twilight.
You know what we have to do? Well, yes I do.
Do you? Look for clues! Well, Pinkie.
Did you find the devourer of the desserts? I most certainly did.
It was, none other than the bakers! First of all, Gustave has mousse in his moustache.
And Joe has éclair in his hair.
And Mulia has sprinkles in her freckles! What do you say, bakers? Oh I am so sorry, Mulia.
But Pinkie made your mousse moose sound très magnifique.
And Pinkie's description of your éclairs really did make 'em sound scrumptious.
And the way she spoke of your Doughnutopia, it was too delectable to resist.
Well everypony, we finally have the mystery solved.
Yes, but now we don't have any desserts to enter into the contest! I think we can fix that.
Come on! Dear Princess Celestia, today I learned that it's not good to jump to conclusions.
You have to find out all the facts before saying somepony did something.
If you don't, you could end up blaming somepony for something they never did.
This could hurt their feelings, and it can make you look really foolish.
So from now on, I'll always make sure to get all the facts.
How's that for a lesson, Princess Celestia? Care for a bite? I don't mind if I do.
