Bake Sale by Sara Varon is one clever little graphic novel. The story is about a cupcake, Cupcake, who owns a bakery and bakes creative and delicious treats. Cupcake dreams of meeting his baking idol, Turkish Delight, and with the support of his best friend, Eggplant, works extra hard to try to fund his trip abroad to make his dream come true. But, not everything goes according to Cupcake's plans and he learns a sugary life lesson or two about friendship, priorities, and happiness. The book is complete with real-life recipes to try at home (Cupcake's raspberry squares sound pretty good to me).
