In The Cakemaker, young German backer Thomas is having an affair with Oren, a married Israeli who makes frequent business visits to Berlin. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem, seeking answers regarding his lover's death. Under a fabricated identity, Thomas infiltrates into the life of Anat, Oren's newly widowed wife, who owns a small downtown Jerusalem café. Working for her Thomas creates German cakes and cookies that bring life into her café and Thomas finds himself involved in Anat's life in a way far beyond his anticipation. To protect the truth, he will stretch his lie to a point of no return.
