A Yummy Review
The book in one sentence: Kate Pickles, cake addict, has not given up on love.
Serious synopsis of Confessions of a Cake Addict by Emma Kaufmann: Will falling in love be the icing on the cake for Kate? Or will it leave her with indigestion? Londoner Kate Pickles has a problem with cake. Every time she feels down she reaches for the nearest chocolate eclair, until soon she is piling on the pounds. But her life is turned upside down when, on a trip to Vienna with her glamorous pal, Eva, Kate falls for a sexy Austrian and gets sucked into making a Bollywood film. As her life gathers momentum Kate faces a crossroads. Will she continue to use cake as an emotional crutch or enter cake rehab and conquer her fears?
My two cents: I've been lapping up some serious fare lately, so a change of pace was in order. Confessions of a Cake Addict hit the spot and then some. This such a riot of a read! Grab this book and cozy up on the couch in the sunroom and just read! I found myself just laughing like silly. It's funny, improbable, but it's not exactly the fluff I was expecting. There is something very smartalecky about this that I really enjoyed.
Most women will be able to relate to Kate Pickles -- a mishmash of Bridget Jones (hey, knickers play a role in this story too!) gone Becky Bloomwood of Confessions of a Shopaholic fame, cakewise that is. Kate's obsession for cake is a main feature, so be prepared for very detailed mouthwatering descriptions of cake! Kate is a copywriter for an ad agency so that's also why she is so good with her words.
