In my opinion, a good romance can be likened to a good cake: sweet, just a little bit fluffy, with some rich flavor and pretty decorations. Just Desserts channels this concept very well. Hayley Goldstein lives a life that, if not completely normal, isn’t too out of the ordinary. She has her own bakery in a small New Jersey town, a 14-year-old daughter who is intelligent beyond her years, and an ex-husband who put Hayley in debt and leaves her constantly concerned that thugs and spine crackers will come to her to pay back her his outstanding loans. However, her mother Jane, a world-renowned oceanographer, has a secret; instead of the sperm donor she told her daughter she used to father her, Hayley is the product of a weekend fling with budding 1970s rock star Tommy Stiles. Tommy is getting married (again) and, while searching for any of his children that might be out there, lawyers find an old, outdated birth certificate for Hayley listing Tommy as her father. Tommy wants to meet his daughter, but his lawyer (and surrogate son) Finn Rafferty oppose the idea of dropping in on Hayley's life, complete with the mayhem that goes along with the Stiles family. So, instead, Tommy decides to break the ice by asking Finn to commission a custom cake from Hayley. It’s her biggest project yet, and one that’s sorely needed. But it’s the rocker’s lawyer who really gets her attention.
