What little girl doesn't like cake? Shirley Walker, that's who! No cake has ever made her happy. At birthday parties and other events she would drive everyone crazy with her silly reasons for passing on a moist piece of cake — too dry, too sweet, too this or that. The only way she was ever going to find a cake she enjoyed was to make it herself! Join Shirley as she takes her future into her own hands, tries something new, and bakes a cake from scratch. Will she actually like it? Beautifully illustrated and containing recipes for cake and frosting, this amusing tale will satisfy your sweet tooth and have you rooting for Shirley.
