I can't believe this is our last

evening together.

Hey, there's nothing

last about this.

You know what I mean.

It'll be a quick four years.

At Duke, maybe while

I'm at culinary school,

but then what?

Well, let's see.

I'll come back here,

I'll come back to Indian Lake,

figure out how to use

my degree and you'll-

Convince Mr. Wilson to sell me

the old creamery?

Once he tries your cupcakes

he won't be able to say no.

That's the hope.

And we'll get married, here,

at the lake.

In the evening?

Have three kids.

I love it.

It's the perfect plan.

Maddie, some people go their

whole lives waiting to find

that one person that they wanna

grow old with.

I just got lucky and found

you now.

Me too.

What's this?

It's my promise.

It's beautiful.

See? You can't get rid of me

that easily.


I slaved over these all day

so you better be hungry.

Chocolate velvet?

And you didn't even let me help.

I had to send you off

with your favorite.

I love you, Maddie.

I always will.

I love you, too.


Mmm, mmm, mmm.


What do you think?

Too sweet?

Not sweet enough?

This one may be my favorite.


Because I wasn't sure if

I should bring it out today

but I really wanna showcase

something new.


You are going to be great.

Well, if not it's back to baking

in my kitchen again.

Thank you, again, for setting up

this meeting with the banker.

I love my little cafe

but it's not gonna make it

if we can't expand.

Especially with everything

starting to break.

Well, my cousin said as far

as investment bankers go

he's a real rising star.

She also said he is

very handsome and single.


Thank you, Emma, but I think

I'll just focus on saving

my business for now,

if that's ok.

Oh, shoot!

I gotta go.

Thank you.


Mmm, mmm.

Ok, cupcakes are out,

business plan is printed,

and why does that

not sound good?

It's choking out a lot of steam.

Is it still making good coffee?

For now.

Let's just focus on that today,


Well, what about the oven?

What about it?

Last night's batch cooked

quicker than usual.

What if things start to burn?

Ok, I know the cafe

needs an overhaul

and hopefully today's meeting

will get us one step

closer to that,

but today let's just focus

on quality.

That's what we're selling.

The rest is just logistics.

What are these?

Our new sugar cookie cake

with brown butter,

rosemary, and pine nut frosting.

You made these last night?



How do you do it?

Do what?

Make me feel better?

Oh, it's not me,

it's the cupcake.

And the fresh rosemary.



Now, let's make a deal.

So originally this was one space

so we won't lose any character

by opening it up.

We're just gonna gain more

seating and catering and just...


Well, from what you told me

on the phone

this is exactly what I pictured.

Small town, charming...

it's a very different feel

from Chicago.

Well, we really appreciate you

coming all the way out here.

It's only an hour away.

And I am glad I came in person.

The space is really unique.

Yeah, I fell in love

with all these details

and I wanted to create cupcakes

that would capture

that same feeling.

And I grew up around here

so I know all the shop owners,

which is always really nice.

Is your family still here?

No, no.

Actually they moved to Florida

a few years ago,

but I- I never really wanted

to live anywhere else.


You know, actually,

this is um...

this is the old creamery

where my grandparents had

their first date.

And since my grandmother taught
