This book is about a girl named Rosemary Bliss and she loves to bake and should never have trusted her Aunt. Lily Le Fay is Rose's aunt and she kept the book. She said she would protect it but she used it and now has she has her own tv show and magic ingredient that goes with her other baking suplies. She is very evil! 

In the beginning Rose went to her aunt's tv show with her family in disguise. Rose challenged her to the gala in Paris to see who gets the cookbook (if Rose wins she gets the cookbook and if Lily wins Rose's family can not get the book or try to ever again). Next they went to their great-great-great grandfather's house to get a copy of the cook book in a different language that only her great-great-great grandfather can translate. Then they head off to Paris to compete. Then Rose's sister ate one of her aunt's cakes and turned into a 2 year old again. 

In the middle Rose wins a cooking challange by getting magical ingredients. Then she finds another ingredient for the next baking challange and she needs to find Mona Lisa's whisper and moves on to the next challange. Next Lily makes a team go home by switching olive oil with freashly squeezed lemon juice. 

In the end someone wins and doesn't do their part of the cookbook. And the person who does not win says something bad about the other person and gets escorted by security. --Fo
