A Piece of Cake
Thirty something Penelope Hart feels something needs to change. She is stuck in a dull city job, lives in a studio flat, and has a boyfriend who cheats on her. So when Penelope is suddenly made redundant she seizes the chance to follow her life-long dream - opening a cake shop. Armed with her mother s amazing cake recipes, Penelope buys a run-down commercial property. But, as she soon discovers, running a business is anything but a piece of cake. The plumbing doesn t work properly, there are mice in the walls, and what s more, Penelope hasn t baked for a while! Help is at hand however in the form of Lizzie, a not too bright but good natured assistant, and Peter, an embittered but handsome handyman and divorcee. After a shaky start Penelope s business soon starts to flourish, and surprisingly so do her feelings for Peter. But then to put the icing on the cake, Penelope s sleazy ex-boyfriend arrives to tempt her back to the city and back in to his arms.
