Della, about to be a contestant on The Great American Baking show, believes the secret to life and good cakes is to simply follow the rules. When her best friend’s daughter asks her to bake her wedding cake, she is overjoyed. That is until she finds out there are two brides and her life is turned upside down. The Culture Wars have never been so delicious in this new comedy from Bekah Brunstetter, Emmy-nominated writer of NBC’s This is Us.
"What's refreshing and heartening about The Cake is its characters' willingness to face their differences and limitations head-on [...] This is us as we could be, if we'd all just try a little harder." - Los Angeles Times
"A singularly savory show that crystallizes a contentious issue and, with empathy for both sides, portrays it in an edifying and insightful way [...] I left the theater feeling moved and enlightened.” - Stage Raw
