Ichigo Amano adores cakes, and she dreams of sharing her passion with others one day. While stuffing her face at a sweets festival, Ichigo stumbles across a cake that reminds her of a pastry from her past. This intrigues Henri Lucas—the pâtissièr that made the cake. Impressed by her astute sense of taste, he implores Ichigo to enroll at St. Marie Academy, where they train the next generation of pâtissières in all aspects of creating confections.

On her first day as a transfer student, Ichigo prays for her success in front of a "Queen of Sweets Spirits" statue on campus. She is later placed in a group with the school's legendary "Sweets Princes"—three boys at the top of her class, each specializing in a different confectionary discipline. Struggling to keep up with the course material, she faces scrutiny from her classmates for being an amateur despite the praise she received from Henri. Upset that her skills pale in comparison to those of her talented team members, Ichigo vows to use her every waking hour to practice.

Seeing her conviction, a Sweets Spirit named Vanilla answers her wishes and coaches Ichigo through the basics of baking amazing cakes. Vanilla aspires to become one of the Sweets Kingdom's "Royal Pâtissières," but she must first prove her abilities by aiding a human. Using her magic, Vanilla helps elevate Ichigo's techniques and confections to the next level as the two work towards becoming top pâtissières.

Yumeiro Patissiere is arguably one of my favorite manga. This is a manga I would recommend to those who enjoy romance, shoujo, or baking/food themes. When reading this manga you will see delicious looking edible creations and lovely costumes.
Story: 10
I gave Yumeiro Patissiere a 10 because the storyline was well developed and always kept me entertained. The story is filled with dreams, obstacles, and over all many inspirational moments.
Art: 9
Art is a definite 9 to me. The art is impressive and detailed, definitely cute and pleasing on the eyes. Although sometimes I felt as if something was missing. If you like typical shoujo read more

The Yumeiro Patissiere anime is what led me to read the ongoing (at least, awaiting English translation) Yumeiro Patissiere manga. And I have to admit, I find the manga to be quite better.

Story: 9/10

I think that the story of the manga is much more directed in the manga than the anime. This is mostly because the plot seems so much more realistic, while the anime pushed what was possible and basically allowed main character Amano Ichigo anything she wanted.

Not so much in the manga. Ichigo must actually strive to reach what she wants, and sometimes it results in failure, which is only normal. This gives read more

I already watched both seasons of the anime of yumeiro patissiere, and I've got to say, the anime was better in my perspective. The story was so and so because as you know, it's about a clumsy girl who becomes really good at making sweets. I still loved the characters! I also found koshiro a bit more tolerable to handle :D. I pretty much found the art "good" because I can't really see the individual looks of the characters. The 3 sweet princes have the same bangs and hairstyles, with just colour to differ. As the story caught on, I was more and more entertained read more
