I recently discovered graphic novelist Sara Varon through this endearing story of friendship, hard work and creative struggles. I was enjoying it so much, I had to put it down. I wanted to savor the good feeling I was getting from reading and watching the lives of these adorable characters.
Cupcake has a balanced life. He happily goes about his daily tasks running the bakery while enjoying the company of friends and the community. He’s the drummer in a band with his best friend and his life is pretty good. When he hits a baking rut, his friend invites him to meet his culinary idol, Turkish Delight. He is sure this will be a solution to his creative lag. Alas, there’s no easy answer to life’s challenges. Relatable emotions are illustrated throughout the story and I love the attitude Cupcake exudes throughout it all.
The book is also a cookbook with recipes from the story included, making this a fun dual purpose read!
