This is a recipe that makes whoever eats it mute. But whoever will add the Cedronian vanilla will not stop talking. Shut 'Em Up Shortcake is a recipe that was cooked in the pilot of Just Add Magic. Kelly Quinn cooked this recipe with the help of Darbie O'Brien and Hannah Parker-Kent for Grandma Quinn's birthday.

History[edit | edit source]

Season 1[edit | edit source]

When the girls found the cookbook, they started going through the recipes and decided to cook Shut 'Em Up Shortcake. When Kelly was about to serve the cake, Buddy interfered with Kelly and the cake fell.

The next day, Buddy could not talk and neither could Hannah. Darbie however, could not stop talking because she added the Cedronian vanilla. Darbie, Hannah and Buddy's spells broke when Kelly apologized to Buddy.

Season 3[edit | edit source]

After asking how was Mr. Morris involved in magic, he tells them. In 1996, Caroline goes to Arthur and tells him about the cookbook and how she cannot stop talking and how RJ was muted. Since Arthur is the smartest kid in the whole school, he asks Caroline if she added the Cedronian vanilla, she replies yes. He tells Caroline to help the new kid (because of the saying: with a noble act from a heart that's true). Then their spells wore off.
