A pastry chef with a promising future is reborn as the son of a poor lord. The boy's name is Pastry, and he will be the next lord of the territory. The struggles of young Pastry's story begin here as he aims to make people smile with his desserts and create a land flourishing with happiness. The best sweet comes with the best tale. This is a sweet fantasy that takes the royal road to change the world!
Pastry Mille Morteln, age 9, is both his father's heir and the reincarnation of an unfulfilled pastry chef. While he dreams of a land filled with sweet treats, there's a lot to be done first! From learning how to fight, to controlling his new magical talents and doing his best to defend his village from bandits, and yet all he really wants to do is bake the perfect apple pie... Pastry Mille Morteln has his work cut out for him in Sweet Reincarnation.
Life in Morteln is many things, but never quiet. After beating back the bandit attack, Pastry and company are now left to handle the aftermath. With increasing money problems, Pas and Casserole start doing the rounds through high society to raise funds for repairs and rebuilding. However, dealing with aristocrats means dealing with political intrigue. Pas’s ingenuity has it covered... until new developments intervene. Pas may wish he could stand in front of the oven all day, but it's still a pretty Sweet Reincarnation.
After resolving the kidnapping incident, Pas next faces the aftermath - with some unexpected outcomes. Are those wedding bells in the distance ringing for him? Meanwhile, Pas and company continue bettering the conditions in Morteln, but their success could catch the attention of certain unfriendly political figures if he's not careful. Pas might be winning over friends with his candy-coated ambitions, but if he isn’t careful the wrong kind of people might become sweet on him.
Like all children his age, Pas has simple wants in life: goats, a wine press, and enough military prestige to claim a prosperous land as his own kingdom of sweets. Unfortunately, his day-to-day-life is interrupted by power struggles amongst higher nobles than himself and losing his new purchases to the needs of marching armies. Can Pas and Casserole bail out Lord Squale and recover their losses in the process - or will this not be such a Sweet Reincarnation after all?
The battle is over, and allies are satisfied. Still, not everything is sugar-crusted in Pas's life: fermentation mishaps and wildlife infestations are not the great baker's friend. Can the Mortelns fend off the fearsome fauna?
With Lord Casserole's status on the rise as the lord of Morteln, Pas has been invited to the prince's birthday celebrations! Meanwhile, the long-standing noble families of the conservative faction who oppose the reformist group begin hatching a plan to stop the dancing boy’s tune. What kinds of countermeasures can Pas cook up in time for the big event?
Pas and Casserole return to the royal capital, where they are approached by a messenger from a noble house. Upon speaking with the messenger's master, they take on a request to deliver a particular missive with great haste, in return for which they receive something they greatly desire. Later, the outcome of their task leads to an uproar revolving around a duel! The second son of Count Aurillon has mistaken Pas for a rival in love and challenges him to see who is worthy of the lovely lady in a battle with betrothal on the line. Will Pas prevail?
As the Tournament of Duels reaches its thrilling conclusion, Pas’s married older sister Vivi returns to Morteln to observe the massive changes that have taken place in her long time away. Pas tries to make himself useful by coming up with special treats to get their people through winter, but his father has only one job for him—to negotiate a banquet held by Viscount Bonbigno, lord of a distant seafaring province.
