I Really Want the Cake on National Cake Day

In honor of National Cake Day, we’re sharing a sneak peek of a delicious new picture book about the all-important themes of impulse control, truth-telling, and making amends (or at least trying to)—I Really Want the Cake by Simon Philip with illustrations by Lucia Gaggiotti, out May 5, 2020.

I Really Want the Cake is the hilarious and all-too-relatable story of one spunky little girl who tries, with all her might, to resist her greatest temptation: cake. Along with her devoted side-kick pup, the temptation mounts and a little lick becomes a bite.

Below, take a look at some of the tasty illustrations from the book, plus a recipe perfect for celebrating National Cake Day! Bon appétit!
