Chip is just like you or me. A blue, frosty complexion. He had chocolate drop eyes and a vanilla wafer tongue. But something made Chip different.
This is the incredible story of a pastry chef with an uncanny and innate ability to cook the perfect cupcake. “I feel the cupcake. I am the cupcake” Chip says in the opening sentence of this novel that explores the dark underbelly of pastry cooking.
With a sell by date only days away and nothing left to lose, the sweet, endearing, and psychotic Chip does whatever it takes to corner the market on gourmet cupcakes. Capping out-of-line rivals and dumping their bodies in a giant mixer. Dosing pastries with super pure sugar. It’s all part of the cut-throat and immoral world of pastry cooking.
“Author Unpublished Guy much-lauded literary skills and exquisite fiction craft makes the impossible possible. The unbelievable becomes believable. The unleavened becomes leavened.”
Bon Appetit Magazine
“For those who prefer a bittersweet desert, revenge is served warm and moist.”
“Chip is unquestionably one of the greatest pastry-based crime novels in literary history.”
