Chloe Baker is a focused, independent businesswoman who thrives on the routine of climbing the corporate ladder. She knows where she is going and nothing will stop her. Nothing, that is, except the recession. Made redundant on her birthday, Chloe's life is in free fall, coming to rest at the feet of handsome stranger, Zachary Doyle on a cold, Newcastle Metro platform. With the help of her friends, Geordie WAG Roxy and quirky, caring Heidi, Chloe tries to remember who she was and what dreams she had before she chose what she had thought was a sensible, secure life. As the child of hedonistic artists, Chloe had rebelled against her creative genes and placed her ambitions to be a designer of posh cakes on a shelf. Now desperate times call for desperate measures... and cake. In order to help Heidi's charity that is struggling through times of austerity, Chloe puts her Baker name into action and starts to create indulgent 'coutured' cupcakes. When Zachary Doyle then approaches Chloe to bake the cakes for his company's Christmas party, Chloe reluctantly agrees. Little does Chloe know that, in doing so, she will find her feet and find the perfect recipe for life. CUPCAKE COUTURE... when life has lost its sweetness, become a Baker and watch it rise.
