Lilo & Stitch manga

The eminent Lilo & Stitch collector, tikistitch, has come into possession of the first chapter of a Lilo & Stitch manga that has begun being serialized in Shougaku Yonensei (4th Grader) magazine.

So I'm slowly working my way through it. I've translated the first two pages thus far:

The title is a bit of a pun, I guess, in that they write "yaku" in hiragana, so it isn't just the "role" suffix; it also suggests the root for "to bake" given that the story is about baking a cake.

The scans she has provided are that size, so reading furigana is out of the question, and even the kanji are a bit of a blur, but of course they're not terribly complicated kanji, so it hasn't been a problem to look them up thus far.
