Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe
by Jenny Colgan

Baking is in Issy Randall’s blood. Growing up above her grandfather’s bakery taught Issy that a delicious pastry could make any day better. So when she’s laid off from her desk job—by the man she thought was her boyfriend, no less—Issy knows now is the time to start her own little café.

Armed with her grandfather’s tried and true recipes, as well as her own new dishes, Issy’s new dream job should be a piece-of-cake, right? But managing a café, delivering products on time and trying to have a new love life aren’t exactly going as Issy planned. And when her ex comes back into the picture, perhaps with his own motives, Issy’s search for the perfect pastry and a groundbreaking idea to save her café are much more than she bargained for… 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jenny Colgan was a fussy eater as a child and didn’t even begin to learn to cook until she was 21, when her then boyfriend tried to teach her a few basics purely out of exasperation. While she is now able to make a variety of good, wholesome food for her family, she still can’t make scones. A former columnist for The Guardian, Jenny contributes regularly to national BBC radio and is the bestselling author of more than eleven novels, including The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris (coming out in the US in early 2014). She is married with three children and lives in London and France. For more information, please visit http://www.jennycolgan.com/ and follow her on Twitter, @JennyColgan.

Follow along all month long for a chance to win a copy of this highly-anticipated and deliciously delightful new novel!

Through the years while my 7 kids were growing up Christmas time was and always will be filled with great memories of my 5 girls, sisters and mom baking every weekend until we made all types of the Italian cookies we loved so much. At least we had about half left at the end of the day because we all couldn't stop tasting ad demolishing them. lol
Thanks for being part of the tour and the opportunity to win.

Chocolate chip cookies are a favorite of mine to bake. I remember baking them with my mom when I was a kid.

I like to make a chocolate cake. When my grown kids come over they know what they are getting for dessert. They love it.

I don't make it anymore because I don't eat too many sweets anymore but mom always made us a lemon icebox pie when I was little because my dad, sister and I loved them. She, however, hated them. We would beg her to make them every week. Probably didn't get them that often, though. So yummy.

My favorite baking memories were always around Christmas--helping my mother make cookies, candies, etc. as gifts for all our neighbors, teachers, and other wonderful people!

I just started baking but I LOVE to bake cupcakes! My favorite is Red Velvet with a Raspberry Buttercream!

Carl Scott said...

I'm not the greatest baker but I have a couple of muffin recipes I can pull off. You won't ever see me on Chopped though. Thanks for the giveaway.

Terry said...

My favorite thing to bake is Orange Kiss Me Cake. I have fond memories of being at the kitchen table and helping my mom grind the oranges, raisins and walnuts. I still have that grinder!

This sounds like a fun book-love caramel sea salt cupcakes.
