Have you ever asked yourself, what is A Proper Baker? You may have your own view and opinion. Surely anyone who has picked up a wooden spoon, a bowl and mixed some ingredients together has earned that title, at least they have given it a go? It seems that people like Douglas Newsome may disagree, however...

Follow Carlos as he deals with daily teasing from boys at his school and find out if he is able to earn their respect through baking. After Class 3 decide to have a Home Baking Stall at The School Fete, Carlos knows what he has to do, all that matters is who has the best cake. Will he be able to conjure up some magic under the old plum tree?

Perhaps with some unexpected help from his late great-grandma, Carlos will be able to win over the whole school. After all, her wooden spoon supposedly works like magic...
