Business is sweet for pastry chef Indira Aguilar. Her indie bakery, Cake Pan, is fast becoming the talk of the wedding circuit for its unique take on cakes and homespun creations for the modern bride, garnering national recognition and drawing in celebrity clients. But while her professional life is blossoming, her personal life is crumbling.
Indira may have a talent for blending buttercream into bliss, but when it comes to relationships, she’s got a lot to learn. Considering that the love of her life, Josh Oliver, is not only married, but also runs the award-winning pastry department of her fiercest competition, Crystal Cove Resort, Indira puts much more at stake than just her heart when she ends her affair with him.
Rumors begin to fly as the small seaside community of Long Beach learns of her secret relationship, and Indira must defend not only her actions, but her wedding business and her reputation while trying to maneuver the choppy heartbreak waters of starting over, finding new love, and facing her past. With the support of friends and family, a fondness for butter, and a determined spirit, Indira may just bake her way back to happiness and possibly into the heart of Crystal Cove’s dishy new chef, Noah. But one thing is certain. Where there’s heartbreak, there must be cake.
I need cake and lots of it. Heartbreak Cake is full of tasty sweet treats that make you want to step into the kitchen and bake, bake and bake! Do you fancy a Victoria Sponge? Yes, me too.
Indira is having a hard time and it’s all because her relationship with Josh has appeared in the limelight. Well, maybe relationship is the wrong word, but she’s still suffering. She’s spent a long time getting the Cake Pan Bakery, a hot spot for sweet treats, the place to be and she’s worried it’ll all come crashing down because of one silly “mistake”.
I was incredibly happy to give ‘Heartbreak Cake’ 5 out of 5 because thankfully for once, it wasn’t overly cliched and there wasn’t too much romance. Indira suffered and she did a lot of crying and sadistic as it sounds, I’m glad you saw just how upset she was. Don’t get me wrong I did feel sorry for her because no one should be treated badly and especially not to be made to feel alone. She was incredibly strong and I value her for that. Destiny’s Childs song Independent Woman sprang into my mind an awful lot.
Josh is an ass and a great big one at that. Yes, it does take two to tango, but Indira shouldn’t have been vindicated. She thought Josh was separated and then all of a sudden he went back to his wife. He was a naughty man!
