CUPCAKE is a flirty love-letter to Summertown, a free-spirited seaside resort where every mouth waters for Tom (Grant MacDermott) and his irresistible cupcakes. But rookie Officer Stone (Mark Linehan), looking hot in his spotless uniform, is on the prowl: the law clearly states that street sales of food are taboo. The locals, especially the hunky Lifeguard (Max Sangerman) and the sexy-nerdy Librarian (Hallie Brevetti), relish Tom’s contraband cupcakes and help their adored baker boy avoid arrest. Meanwhile the ruthless Real Estate Agent (Karen MacDonald) intends to seal her own sweet deal. If anyone is going to get their hunger satisfied, they’d better hurry: this is Summertown, and the short, short season is almost at an end.
