Baking Cakes in Kigali

Author(s): Gaile Parkin

General Fiction

Meet Angel Tungaraza - Kigali's very favourite cake baker. Angel bakes cakes for every occasion, giving comfort and good advice to her friends and neighbours; but she also hides a painful secret. Can she finally admit the truth about her children?

Angel Tungaraza is a very special somebody, a business-woman, mother and grandmother, known throughout Kigali for her mouth-watering celebration cakes. Over hot sweet tea and plates of fondant morsels, Angel takes down her customers' orders, listens to their stories - for she is cake maker, confidante and councel - and busies herself around the details of their lives. But Angel hides her own secrets - a darkness clouds her eyes when she thinks about the deaths of her two children, Joseph and Vinas.

Baking Cakes in Kigali is a charming and soulful story of a country in recovery, where heartbreak lives alongside hope for the future.
