Zinnia Jakes makes the most delicious cakes on earth - but no one knows who she is! What the world certainly doesn’t know is that Zinnia Jakes is really nine-year-old Zoe Jones.

Zoe makes all her cakes in secret but when she gets an order to make a medieval cake she is not sure if she is going to have it ready in time.

With her best friend Addie and her Aunty Jam to help, not to mention her amazing cat Coco, they race against time to deliver Zoe’s best cake yet.

This book will appeal to those in Year 4 and up, particularly girls who love cooking and creating.

Zoe and her family and friends are lovely characters, and I’m sure this series will be a very popular one.
