The Perfect Cake for Independence Day

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

How to Send a Cake to a Deployed SoldierSend a cake to somebody in the U.S., and we’ll send a second cake to a soldier serving overseas!

Independence Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than by sending someone you love a deluxe chocolate brownie cake?

That’s a pretty delicious way to enjoy the holiday! But what if part of your order also went toward sending a second gourmet cake overseas to an active service soldier?

Just imagine — you could be celebrating your freedom this year by sending your thanks to a person that’s working to make it possible. You can’t beat that!

How It Works

When you purchase the Freedom Cake for a recipient here in the United States, Bake Me a Wish! in partnership with Soldiers’ Angels will deliver a gourmet cake to a soldier serving overseas.

The Freedom Cake features a decadent layer of deluxe chocolate brownie thickly coated in a smooth and creamy fudge frosting and adorned with sprinkles on top and bittersweet chocolate shavings on the sides.

This gourmet treat also includes a special card informing the recipient that a cake has been sent to a soldier in their name alongside an imprint of the American flag.

Head on over to our Freedom Cakes page to get started.

Know Somebody Serving Overseas?

If there’s a specific person you’d like to thank this Independence Day, you can also send a cake directly to a deployed military service member through our Operation: Birthday Cake program.

The cake doesn’t have to be for their birthday — it can be for any occasion of your choice. However, as an added bonus, 5% of your order will be contributed to the Operation: Birthday Cake program, which donates birthday cakes each month to our valued service men and women overseas.

Every soldier deserves a little something sweet on their special day, and you can help make it happen with your contributions.

Here’s to the men and women that protect our freedom everyday, and happy birthday, America!

Send Your Soldier a Gourmet Cake

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Do you know a soldier serving overseas? Say ‘thank you’ with a scrumptious cake!

Whether it’s a brother, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend, father, mother, cousin, uncle, aunt, or friend, many of us know someone who is deployed overseas.

Being so far from a person you love for an extended period of time is not easy. And it’s especially hard for them, representing our country in a foreign — and often dangerous — place.

In times like these, the smallest gesture can have a huge impact on a soldier’s morale. Just to know someone back home is thinking of them and eagerly awaiting their return can lighten even the darkest days.

You don’t have to wait for a birthday to send a bit of love their way. Why not do something today to let them know how appreciative you are for their service?

A Sweet Surprise From Overseas

If you have a deployed military service member to whom you’d like to send a cake, you can make a selection from the bakery items on this page.

Plus!!!

5% of your order will be contributed to Bake Me A Wish!’s Operation: Birthday Cake program which, with our partner Soldiers’ Angels, donates birthday cakes each month to other service men and women overseas.

Not only will you be treating your soldier to a sweet surprise, you’ll be contributing to the morale of others who are serving overseas.

How to Send a Cake to a Deployed Soldier

Sending a birthday cake to a deployed soldier is a great way to show him or her your love and appreciation for their hard work and sacrifice. And it’s a lot easier to send a birthday cake to a deployed soldier than you might think.

All you have to do is visit this page, choose your soldier’s favorite cake flavor, select your preferred date of delivery and we’ll send the birthday cake to your deployed soldier as quickly as possible.

Each cake is packaged to ensure freshness and includes a card and plaque to mark the occasion. Even if it’s not your deployed soldier’s birthday, you can choose from a number of other occasions like:

  • Father’s Day
  • Happy Anniversary
  • Love
  • Thank You
  • And more!

In addition, 5% of your order will be contributed to Bake Me A Wish!’s Operation: Birthday Cake which donates birthday cakes each month, with our partner Soldiers’ Angels, to deployed military overseas.

Let your deployed son, daughter, husband, wife or friend know that you’re thinking about them on their special day with a gourmet birthday cake from Bake Me A Wish!

What kinds of cakes can I send to a deployed soldier?

Send Cake to Deployed MilitaryBake Me A Wish! offers a variety of gourmet cakes to send to your deployed soldier, including:

  • Cookies and Cream
  • Magic Bar Brownie
  • Chocolate Mint Chip
  • Cinnamon and Walnuts Coffee Cake
  • Raspberry Coffee Cake
  • Apple Coffee Cake
  • Cinnamon Coffee Cake
  • Chocolate Coffee Cake

Our Decadent Delight Brownie Cakes are 7 inches in diameter and our Ultimate Coffee Cakes are 8 inches in diameter.

Unfortunately, frosted cakes cannot be sent to deployed military overseas because of the time required for shipping cakes.

When will my deployed soldier receive his/her birthday cake?

While Bake Me A Wish! does its best to send birthday cakes to deployed soldiers on the date you request, we cannot guarantee it will arrive on a specific date.

Operation: Birthday Cakes are bulk shipped every two weeks via USPS and usually take about 10-14 days to arrive once they are shipped.

If you have any questions about the Operation: Birthday Cake service or process, please call or email us. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

 

Love of Chocolate Event Honors Families of Deployed Soldiers

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

This past weekend, Bake Me A Wish! had the pleasure of honoring families of deployed service members at the “Love of Chocolate” party in North Dakota in coordination with our good friend, Shelle Michaels, National Communications Officer for Soldiers Angels. Shelle has been a great ally in our effort to show deployed service members that they are not forgotten by us at home through our Operation Birthday Cake Program. The event was also brought together with Colonel Michael and was attended by David Sprynczynatyk, Major General and Adjunct General of the North Dakota National Guard as well as Lt. Governor Drew Wrigley.

This year, Bake Me A Wish was able to bring some additional smiles to the Love of Chocolate event as Bake Me A Wish cakes were handed out to family members deployed soldiers. Take a quick look at those faces below – happy to have some chocolate and know that we’re working to support their family members overseas.

Honors from Iraq

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

As you know, 5% of our online sales are attributed to our partnership with Soldiers Angels to provide gourmet birthday cakes to deployed service members overseas as part of our Operation Birthday Cake program.  To date, we’ve sent thousands of cakes either from retail purchases or direct donations made possible by our shoppers who simply sent a cake to a loved one for their birthday.  Each and every day we receive soldier responses about how we’ve helped boost morale while our military personnel are fighting for our freedoms so far from home.

Today, we received a fine honor from Cpt. Dan over at the 14th Trans. Battalion at the Joint Base Balad, Iraq.  There is no greater feeling than to receive recognition for the good works you are doing; this wonderful command team encourages to keep on sending cakes and keep on letting our service members know they are appreciated and valued by their citizens back at home.
