Ben's pal Harry is a cake decorator extraordinaire, revered for his fabulous creations. Every cake is a work of art; no two are alike. Harry loves every minute of his job. But one day the bakery is sold and the new owners don't want Harry or his unique creations. They want lots and fast, not different and special. Despondant, Harry eventually accepts his forced retirement and sinks into a chair in front of the TV. Ben, however, is not about to see Harry become a couch potato. When a school assignment proves too hard, he seeks out Harry's advice, determined to help his older friend discover another outlet for his amazing talent. Will it work? Will Harry's way with icing lead to another career? A funny and touching tale, Each One Special celebrates the power of friendship to rejuvenate the soul and ignite the creative spirit.
