The Icing on the Cake by Janice Thompson

About the Book
Scarlet Lindsey's aunt Wilhelmina may be Texas's most popular cake baker extraordinaire, but she's also getting on in years. When Scarlet decides to take on the role of cake decorator at her cranky aunt's bidding, it's just the beginning of a series of misunderstandings and mishaps that will lead her to compete in a cake challenge on national television--and might even lead her to finding true love.
Fan favorite Janice Thompson is back with more wit, more weddings, and more of what her readers love best--bridal business drama. Bella and the gang are all here and readers will fall in love with the newest quirky characters straight from the creative mind of a fantastic storyteller.

My Thoughts
 I loved this book! Scarlet was fantastic and I felt I really could relate to her!It was great to see her become comfortable in her own skin! Having grown up on old TV show reruns I loved all of her I Love Lucy references and she just generally amused me.
Armando was great too. I hadn't had a very high opinion of him in all of the other books but he won me over in this one! It was awesome to get a look into what made him the way he was and I loved watching as he matured through the course of the book.
The baking aspect was fun and it was cool to get a behind the scenes look at all that goes into making a wedding cake!
I again thoroughly enjoyed having the characters from the Weddings by Bella series and Picture Perfect show-up and Scarlet's family was fun including her Auntie Willy!
All in all a great second book in a fun series!
