Synopsis

A high school crush, a world-class pastry chef, a former middle-weight boxing champion...and a whole lot of cake! Ono has come a long way since the agonizing day in high school when he confessed his love to handsome Tachibana. Now, some 14 years later Ono, a world-class pastry chef and gay playboy has it all. No man can resist Ono's charms (or his cooking skills!), but he has just found a new position under a man named Tachibana. Can this be the only man who resisted his charms, and if so, will the man who once snubbed the "magically gay" Ono get his just desserts? And how in the heck did a former middleweight boxing champion wind up as Ono's cake boy?

Don't be fooled by the description. The selling point may be the found family of cute boys running a bakery together, but there is a darker mystery plot lying just below the surface. The main characters in this group are all charming in their own ways and they each have interesting backstories and unique personality quirks that get a chance to shine in the spotlight, so it's easy to see why their bakery is so successful. They complement each other very well and the largely episodic nature of the story contributes to the fun slice of life atmosphere.

This manga repeatedly sets up expectations through tropes ...
