“Cupcake, you magnificent mare, you!”
Cupcake is Pandora’s much-beloved best friend and much-beleaguered personal assistant/minion. Cupcake is highly inexpressive and almost unfazable, speaking in a flat monotone and hardly ever cracking a smile. Because of these unsettling tendencies, ponies tend to write her off as weird, or plain, or boring. Their loss.
Cupcake’s stoic gaze hides a sharp sense of humor that she normally expresses in a torrent of deadpan snark. She is intelligent, loyal, knowledgeable in a surprising number of fields, and hyper-competent, truly the best minion a girl could want. Pandora values Cupcake’s input and will often use her as a sounding board to cook up new chaotic schemes. If they manage to pull off a plan, it’s usually Cupcake who is responsible. Despite this, Cupcake is perfectly content to simply play the docile assistant to her bombastic boss, and sticks by her through thick and thin, for whatever crazy reason.
