He’ll make you a cake you can’t refuse . . .

Everyone adores Don Cannoli. His pastry is the stuff of legend, and people wait in line for hours for a bite of his cakes. One day, something dramatic- and bright orange-happens, and this means big trouble. Now it’s up to the Don’s children to save the day. With the big Cake-Off competition around the corner, can the kids rally around in time to uphold the family name?
And who can possibly fit into the Don’s oversized apron?

Written entirely in limericks, The Best Baker in the World is a wild and whimsical tale that takes on one of the greatest films ever made-The Godfather.
