Mobile, Alabama
1942

Mildred “Rosie” Fairbanks never cared for cake, but it’s hard to escape it when she lives in her family’s bakery in downtown Mobile. Regardless, she was content to spend her days reading, baking, and going on adventures with her best friend Billy Fuji.

Her life falls askew when Japan attacks the United States and Pearl Harbor goes down in 1941. The Japanese-Americans have to suffer for the disaster; before she knows it, her best friend is gone, and she isn’t certain of his fate. All she can do to stay connected to Billy Fuji is write letters he may never read.

To make things worse: the rationing begins, and the bakery flounders. Rosie and her brother must drop out of school to bake and sell cakes, but as time wears on and money grows tighter, the impending threat of homelessness is more prevalent than ever.

The Girl Who Frosts the Cakes is a bittersweet, endearing story of friendship, loss, and love on the homefront of World War II.
