In Peppermint Cream Die, Kayla makes a variety of cakes, cookies, and pies, both for friends and for clients. Although I am not much of a baker, I experimented a bit to try to mimic what Kayla does in the book. You can see my attempts below of a crab cake (pun intended) and an octopus cake. Kayla makes the crab cake for her new boyfriend, restaurateur Jason Banks. The octopus cake is for a children’s birthday party. For Kayla, a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), baking is her go-to when she’s overstimulated. I’m also an HSP, but baking makes me a little too stressed. Fortunately for everyone, I don’t bake for a living!
