In the series premiere episode, "The Sweetest Thing," Leah wishes for the genies' help in making cupcakes for her school bake sale. Through silly misunderstandings, Leah, Shimmer and Shine find themselves stuck with a giant birthday cake, some farm animals and no wishes left. They must work together to fix their magical mistakes without drawing the attention of Leah's curious (and hungry) neighbor, Zac.

"Shimmer and Shine" follows the magical adventures of genie-in-training twin sisters Shimmer and Shine and their human best friend Leah. Whenever Leah has a dilemma she calls upon her secret genies with a special chant and a rub of her pendant necklace. Shimmer and Shine, along with their special pets Nahal a Bengal tiger cub and Tala a playful Gibbon monkey, fly out of their genie world and into Leah's human one helping her by granting her three wishes! But the genies' naiveté about the human world means they accidentally grant wishes Leah didn't intend to make. In the end every wrong wish turns into a crazy adventure!
