A sweet and satisfying novel of how delicious it is to discover your dreams
Issy Randall can bake. No, Issy can create stunning, mouthwateringly divine cakes. After a childhood spent in her beloved Grampa Joe's bakery, she has undoubtedly inherited his talent. She's much better at baking than she is a filing so when she's laid off from her desk job, Issy decides to open her own little café. But she soon learns that her piece-of-cake plan will take all of her courage and confectionary talent to avert disaster.
Funny and sharp, Meet Me at the Cupcake Café is about how life might not always taste like you expect, but there's always room for dessert!

I wish I hadn't taken so long to read it. I also can't wait to get baking after the holidays and try some of these yummy sounding recipes.The vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream are making my mouth water just thinking about them.
Tons of fun raveled into this boo. Love how truly heartwarming it is and know lots of you will love it too!
