“I-could-get-a-good-idea” or “I-have-to-find-an-alternative-soon.” Mar
ta’s grandmother is irritated by Euphorbia’s eccentricity, but Marta is
conquered by her and decides to enroll in intensive pastry classes in
the bakery. To her great surprise she is the only one to attend classes,

pastry system. But there is a twist at the end.
