It's Daniel Tiger's birthday and he is excited for his party. He and his mom ride the Trolley to the Neighborhood bakery to pick out his cake. Katerina Kittycat and O the Owl join them along the way.

At Baker Aker's Bakery, Daniel make-believes that the goodies in the bakery are able to sing and dance. From O's book of party cakes, Daniel chooses a tiger cake.

As he helps decorate his cake with black and orange stripes, Daniel accidentally leaves a glop of icing on the tiger's head. His mother reminds him: "When something seems bad, turn it around, and find something good." Katerina helps Daniel to recognize that the glop can be made into a smile on the tiger's face.

Returning home, Daniel is disappointed to find that his cake has been smashed inside its box. His dad reminds him: "When something seems bad, turn it around, and find something good." Together, Daniel and his dad share a bite of cake as Daniel realizes that the cake still tastes good even if it's smashed.

The guests arrive for the birthday party and enjoy what is left of the tiger cake. Together, everyone sings a song about finding something positive in disappointing situations.
