Maddie Bird is fresh out of high school and has a bakery job she loves. She's never had much money, but she is a hard worker. There's just one problem: her flirty co-worker, Drew. All it takes is one of his sly winks, and she's incinerating the cookies.
Maddie's best friend keeps pushing her cousin Hudson as a potential love-puppy. He's clever and has nice brown eyes, but he's so arrogant. Which is ironic, since the guy's hobby is making origami. Come on. Origami?
Maddie tries to focus on her career and stay away from bad-boy Drew, but fate, in the form of a reality show, keeps pushing them together. They spend an evening at his house, working on re-branding for the bakery, and one hot makeout session changes everything.
Everything's about to get way worse.
Chock full of imperfect people behaving badly, Practice Cake is light-hearted and brimming with humor.
