In this quirky-looking new tale from this talented artist, you’re invited to catch up with the now love-struck Muffnut (the seamless fusion of muffin & doughnut), pining after the affection of his French fancy the Cruffin (she’s actually a … you can work it out) who,unfortunately, doesn’t seem to be interested at all.

It’s a fresh take on a timeless theme; a tasty tale of unrequited love, made with metaphorical muffins -seasoned with moments of truth -is for anyone whose feelings weren’t reciprocated -or those who really like cake!
