A “sweet indulgence for your mind, heart, and tastebuds”—now a major motion picture starring Yara Shahidi, Odessa A’zion, and Bette Midler (Molly Tarlov, MTV’s Awkward).
Meeting Mr. Right is never easy. And in a big city like Los Angeles, it’s even harder. So, after years of fruitless efforts at finding a soul mate, Audrey Shulman decided to take a different route to a man’s heart—through his sweet tooth. Whipping up a variety of sinfully delicious cakes, Audrey invaded the savage singles scene fully armed with butter, sugar, and frosting.
Sitting in Bars with Cake recounts Audrey’s year spent baking, bar-hopping, and offering slices of cake to men in the hope of finding a boyfriend (or, at the very least, a date).
With 35 inventive recipes, this charming book pairs each cake with a short essay and tongue-in-cheek lesson about picking up boys in bars.
“This delectable mix of encouragement, anecdote and cream-filling is more than enough reason to start baking and flirting.” —Winnie Holzman, creator of My So-Called Life
“This is a delightfully humble and enthralling tale about cake and bars and boys, but it’s really about life, and what it takes to get up every day and be the person you have always wanted to be.” —Tracy Moore, Jezebel
