Description
From DMP:

A high school crush, a world-class pastry chef, a former middle-weight boxing champion...and a whole lot of cake!
Ono has come a long way since the agonizing day in high school when he confessed his love to handsome Tachibana. Now, some 14 years later Ono, a world-class pastry chef and gay playboy has it all. No man can resist Ono's charms (or his cooking skills!) but he has just found a new position under a man named Tachibana. Can this be the only man who resisted his charms, and if so, will the man who once snubbed the "magically gay" Ono get his just desserts? And how in the heck did a former middleweight boxing champion wind up as Ono's cake boy?

Recipient of 26th Kodansha Manga Award in the shoujo manga category for 2002.

If you're a food-lover or a lover of shounen ai, this manga's for you. Beautifully illustrated desserts and beautifully drawn men are both plentiful in this story. But it isn't just a superficial charm -- there are depths to these men that are explored with each consecutive volume. Secrets, failed romances and hidden hopes are all brought to light as our patissiers bumble their way through life.

The only reason I'm not giving this manga a 9 or a 10 is because the romantic tension built up throughout the series isn't clearly resolved at the end. In my opinion, Yoshinaga-sensei should do a sequel, in which Tachibana finally gets his head out of his ass and admits his feelings to himself. smile It would also be good to follow Chikage and Kanda as they pursue their goals.
