Enid, the baker's daughter, married a lord. All thanks to a very special cake recipe.
Now a widow, she lives alone with her grown son. She runs his household with all the skill she learned as a baker's daughter combined with the grace she learned as a noble lady. She loves it, but nothing lives forever, not even talented mothers who bake special cakes.
Her son needs a wife. And the errant king arrives that very day, his three marriageable daughters in tow.
Time to bake a cake sweet enough to win a princess's heart. It all depends on Enid's skill, and on the potency of her secret ingredient.
"Trifle", a sweet treat of a short story.
