Another Satisfied Mom on Blessings Abound!

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

The chocolate cake came in a sophisticated gold gift box and was carefully wrapped in plastic to maintain freshness. When I placed the cake on the table in front of my kids, my oldest daughter exclaimed it was too pretty to eat. It sure didn’t stop them from grabbing forks to dig in though! It was difficult to take only one bite to taste this, but I managed to stop at just one bite before grudgingly handing the rest over to my children. They didn’t seem to mind that I couldn’t have more of the cake and devoured every forkful of cake until it was gone. I was glad it was a personal sized cake so the portions were just right for four small children.

The kids and I were in agreement that the Double Fudge Crunch Cake had a brownie like cake texture. Now, I am not a big brownie person. In fact, brownies don’t appeal to me at all and I usually pass them up at parties and get togethers. However, this cake was also topped with a chocolate chip and cinnamon oat streusel with dark chocolate glaze drizzled over it. To me, that is what made the cake! The streusel was crunchy and chewy and I love dark chocolate… well, almost any kind of chocolate is good, but the dark chocolate glaze was decandent! The cake was adorned with a decorative chocolate plaque imported from Belgium that said thank you and my thoughts were, no, thank you for such a delicious and delectable treat that our family thoroughly enjoyed!

Immaculate Heart of Mary Supports Our Troops!

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

(High Point, NC) – June 11th, 2009 – This past Lent, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic church’s Faith Formation  honored our Operation: Birthday Cake cause by having a charitable drive for the soldiers.  This wonderful group used very special “Easter Eggs” to help involve their congregation and it’s children.   Each egg had a request for the child that day, including “Give someone a hug who needs it today!” and “Clean your room without being asked!” For each task completed, the child dropped the egg into a basket along with a quarter.

No doubt, The Immaculate Heart of Mary received a tremendous response to their outreach, raising hundreds of dollars to ensure that no Soldier would go without a cake on their birthday – no matter where they may be.  Thank you Immaculate Heart of Mary!  You are a role-model on what we should be doing in our own communities for Lent and throughout the year.

You too can get involved in Operation Birthday Cake!  Setup a special event: silent auction, bake sale, whatever it may be!  OR simply order a Freedom Cake from Bake Me A Wish!
