June Cupcake Book Club

This month’s book is The Bakery Girls by Florence Ditlow. The book is set in Pennsylvania and follows a family of sisters through The Great Depression and WWII at their father’s bakery. Buy the book on Amazon UK paperback and Kindle, US Paperback and US Kindle. I maybe perhaps see some retro baking in my future!

Refresher to those that want to join in this month. The concept is simple. Each month I’ll chose a novel with a cupcake (or baking/food theme) and post my review here. In addition, I’m going to bake something delicious inspired by the book.

I would also like to invite everyone to read, discuss and bake along with me. I also want to share! I’ll post a round up of any entries I receive. There are only a few loose guidelines stated below.

Guidelines
1. Make a good faith effort to start reading the chosen novel
2. Bake (or create) anything inspired by the chosen novel
3. Link to this post. Feel free to use the book club logo.
3. Email me your name, link to your blog post (if you have a blog) and photo (1MB or less in size) of your creation, where you’re from, and 1-2 sentences of what you thought of the book or what in the book inspired your creation by the stated deadline.
4. No spoilers please

Start reading now and join the discussion (#cupcakebookclub, facebook, or comments on this post)! Send your inspired treat to me by July 15th and I’ll write a blog post featuring all submissions.
