Syd, a baker at the Proud Muffin, is perplexed after couples who eat Syd's brownies immediately split up, but when the owners of the bakery eat the brownies, Syd is afraid the bakery may close and it is only Harley, a delivery person, who convinces Syd that baking can actually fix things.

Teenage baker Syd sends ripples of heartbreak through Austinâs queer community when a batch of post-being-dumped brownies turns out to be magicalâand makes everyone who eats them break up.
âWhatâs done is done.â
Unless, of course, it was done by my brownies. Then itâs getting undone.
Syd (no pronouns, please) has always dealt with big, hard-to-talk-about things by baking. Being dumped is no different, except now Syd is baking at the Proud Muffin, a queer bakery and community space in Austin. And everyone who eats Sydâs breakup brownies . . . breaks up. Even Vin and Alec, who own the Proud Muffin. And their breakup might take the bakery down with it. Being dumped is one thing; causing ripples of queer heartbreak through the community is another. But the cute bike delivery person, Harley (he or they, check the pronoun pin, itâs probably on the messenger bag), believes Syd about the magic baking. And Harley believes Sydâs magical baking can fix things, tooâone recipe at a time.
