Barrett Patrick won the opportunity to play entrepreneur for a day at Twisted Cookie on May 11. 

Patrick, 5, of Oak Park, said she served up cookies and cupcakes to customers for six hours at the Forest Park bakery. She received the opportunity after her parents won an auction prize at Pilgrim Community Nursery School, which she attends. Twisted Cookie donated 20 percent of sales to Pilgrim. 

"I like it because there was chocolate," Patrick said. Her favorite item, both to serve and eat, was a chocolate brownie dipped in chocolate. She also enjoyed serving pink cupcakes and cookies — since pink is her favorite color. Her main responsibility was fetching customer orders, placing them in bags and then handing them to shoppers. 

Barrett's father, Ryan Patrick, said Mother's Day Cookie baskets were the most popular item ordered. 

"It was a very cool place and [owner Joana Fischer] was very generous with her time," Ryan said. "A lot" of Barrett's friends came in to see her show off her entrepreneurial skills.

After the experience, Ryan said she now dreams of becoming a chef. 

"I learned a lot," she confirmed.
