Meet Me at the Cupcake Café by Jenny Cogan
July 2013

Baking is in Issy Randall’s blood. Growing up above her grandfather’s bakery taught Issy that a delicious pastry could make any day better. So when she’s laid off from her desk job—by the man she thought was her boyfriend, no less—Issy knows now is the time to start her own little café.

Armed with her grandfather’s tried and true recipes, as well as her own new dishes, Issy’s new dream job should be a piece-of-cake, right? But managing a café, delivering products on time and trying to have a new love life aren’t exactly going as Issy planned. And when her ex comes back into the picture, perhaps with his own motives, Issy’s search for the perfect pastry and a groundbreaking idea to save her café are much more than she bargained for…



Jenny ColganABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jenny Colgan was a fussy eater as a child and didn’t even begin to learn to cook until she was 21, when her then boyfriend tried to teach her a few basics purely out of exasperation. While she is now able to make a variety of good, wholesome food for her family, she still can’t make scones. A former columnist for The Guardian, Jenny contributes regularly to national BBC radio and is the bestselling author of more than eleven novels, including The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris (coming out in the US in early 2014). She is married with three children and lives in London and France. For more information, please visit and follow her on Twitter, @JennyColgan.

My favorite baked goodie is German Chocolate Cake. Coming in second is Cherry Pie. Actually, I like just about any dessert that is baked. Baking is a fun thing for me to do….I enjoy it more than cooking.

I love a good Pineapple Upside Down Cake-
Once when i was living in Colorado, i attended a meeting and one of the farm ladies had made a dark chocolate angel food cake. That was soooo delicious. I still have yet to find a recipe for that. i wrote Betty Crocker company and they sent me a similar recipe but the chocolate could barely be tasted. Would love to rescue that recipe someplace. Of course, it was made with really fresh eggs (whites) so that could have added to the taste
