Do I really need to tell you? If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Why in the world would there be a beautifully decorated cupcake in the woods? It’s a faerie cake, as you well know.
Some of the more… unsavoury fae folk try to lure people into their traps by laying tempting treats in easy reach. The idea seems quite silly to adults and it’s rare to work so directly, but to the often more impulsive familiars of mages, they can work like a charm. The familiar falls under a spell of an undesirable kind, and the mage must bargain or battle to free them.
So use your brain, please, everyone, don’t eat the mysterious forest foods.
