In August 2004, Gesine Bullock-Prado left behind a high-powered life in Hollywood, where she had run a production company with her sister, actress Sandra Bullock. She began a new chapter in the opposite corner of America, opening a bakery in the smallest state capital in the country: Montpelier, Vermont. Trading her designer suits and imported shoes for sweatpants and mismatched socks, she embraced her true destiny, launching a production company of another sort: a gem called Gesine Confectionary, where each morning at 4 a.m., she was able to revel in the joy of baking.

Celebrating her once-secret hobby, Confections of a Closet Master Baker is the story of a woman who found a new purpose—and new joy—by following her heart. Packed with recipes that have made her a celebrity in her own right, this delectable memoir reminds us of the powerful links between food and memory, especially family memories. In the tradition of the bestselling Tender at the Bone, the ingredients of Gesine's life will delight you at every turn.
