Is it ok to stray from the recipe?
Jen and Macy are getting married! Macy comes from a Black progressive liberal New England family, while Jen’s upbringing is from the white conservative south. When Jen returns home to get married locally she wants to hire her mother’s charming best friend and Great American Bake-Off competitor, Della, to make her wedding cake. As a Christian woman, Della makes cakes, not judgment calls – those she leaves to God and her blue-collar husband, Tim. For the first time in her life Della has to think for herself. Her indecision about making a wedding cake for two women leaves Della and Jen at a crossroad covered and smothered in a mess of icing. This funny heartfelt play written by Bekah Brunstetter shows us how we all change when those we love bring us new perspectives.
