Cupcake’s life is pretty good. He’s got his bakery, and his band, and his best friend, Eggplant. His days are full of cooking, socializing, and playing music. But lately, Cupcake has been struggling in the kitchen. He’s sure the solution to all his problems is out there somewhere. But maybe that solution is hiding closer to home.Sara Varon returns with an ageless tale as dreamy and evocative as her break-out hit graphic novel Robot Dreams. At once deeply metaphorical and hilariously literal, Bake Sale is a story for anyone who’s ever looked for an easy answer to life’s intractable difficulties. It’s also a cookbook: Varon includes seven delicious recipes, from classic cupcakes to sugared flower petals to marzipan.
Originally from outside Chicago, Sara Varon now resides in Brooklyn, where she likes to bake, and especially eat, baked goods. Fortunately, she is a runner and recreational boxer, so she gets lots of exercise too. Her other books include Robot Dreams, Chicken and Cat, Chicken and Cat Clean Up, and Sweaterweather.
