Baker Jake bakes wonderful homemade cakes, but the day before he is due to take part in a TV baking competition, his special whisk goes missing! Without it, Jake fears he will be beaten by the fiendish Maureen Buttercream, owner of the soulless Cakes-U-Like chain. So who has stolen the whisk? By the time the true culprit is revealed, Jake will have to find out whether he or his whisk is the real secret of his success.
