Bake Me a Wish

Apparently, I was queen for a day in the middle east, thanks to an idea to send my shipmates over in Afghanistan a cake from Bake Me A Wish. I have a few friends stationed in Kabul for a year as Individual Augmentees (IA) for the U.S. Navy as Public Affairs Officers.

A little birdie told me that my LCDR friend had a thing for oreo cookies. Ok, I cheated and I asked her husband on Facebook. Good thing I did, because I learned she pretty much just likes chocolate cake. They have a special “Freedom Cake” that you can order for yourself, and Bake Me A Wish will send a cake to a soldier serving overseas.

Here’s the cookies and cream one I ordered for my friend. They are very courteous over the phone and the cake got there pretty fast, considering. It was packaged very nicely so it arrived fresh and delicious!

Mortgage apple cakes save Teaneck woman from losing her house

TEANECK — Dressed in white pants and a white button-down shirt, Angela Logan blends in among the kitchen staff at the Hilton in Hasbrouck Heights. As she fetches big bowls of butter-cream cheese frosting from the walk-in cooler and lightly jabs the top of a golden cake in the oven, she seems more like a hotel pastry chef than a woman fighting foreclosure.

But that’s just what this 55-year-old actress and former dancer from Teaneck is doing: turning a much-loved recipe for apple cakes into a moneymaker that can help save her home of nearly 20 years.

In these lean economic times, acting jobs are scarce, and Logan’s usual standby, substitute teaching, has also been hard to find. A string of unforeseeable events, including a botched construction job on her home and the sudden closure of one of her talent agencies, left her struggling to pay her mortgage.

Mortgage Cake Baker Partners with Online Cake Seller

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Angela Logan and her “mortgage apple cake” have hit the big time.

The Teaneck actress, who two weeks ago began baking apples cakes for friends in an effort to stave off foreclosure — and then was overwhelmed with orders for the $40 confection after a Record article ignited a media storm — is now partnering with an online seller of special-occasion cakes.

Logan has signed a contract with BakeMeAWish.com that will allow her to use the company’s baking plant on Long Island to fill her backlog of hundreds of cake orders. BakeMeAWish employees will prepare the cakes under Logan’s direct supervision, and the privately held company will handle shipment, said BakeMeAWish founder and President Josh Kaye.

Logan, who was planning to visit a FedEx office Thursday to send off a crucial $2,559.94 check to her lender, currently is baking at the Hasbrouck Heights Hilton hotel, which offered a corner of its kitchen last weekend. The apple cake operation will move to Long Island as early as next week.

After Logan fills her pending cake orders, which are coming in from around the world, she will continue a business relationship with BakeMeAWish, said Kaye, who founded the company in 2004.

Kaye said mortgage apple cake eventually will become part of the company’s product line — the Web site was taking orders for it Thursday — and that proceeds from its sale will help other homeowners in financial distress.

I love my husband, but sometimes I wonder what he’s thinking.  For my 48th birthday last week he brought home cream puffs. Now don’t get me wrong, I love cream puffs and it was very thoughtful of my hubby.  When I casually asked why he chose cream puffs, he said he thought I didn’t like cake.  Huh?  Who’s he been married to for the last 25 years?  I LOVE cake!

GREAT review and giveaway on “BETTER IN BULK”:

Let me attest that this was totally-worth-the-calories kind of chocolate. Melt-in-your-mouth chocolate. Is-three-pieces-too-much-before-dinner? chocolate. Let me just read you the description to this cake: “The Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake: Moist and fudgy brownie cake goes through three chocolate “passes:” first, it’s enrobed in rich chocolate, then completely blanketed with dark chocolate shaves and, finally, milk and dark chocolate glazes drizzled all over.”

Great review from the Shopping Mama – check it out!

“I was super lucky to receive the Triple Chocolate Enrobed Cake to stuff my face review and it was divine. It arrived in an insulated styrofoam box with ice gel pack thingyss (I’m sure that’s the technical name) to keep the cake cool. The cake itself is contained in a very nice looking box within a box. Really, the presentation is great and anyone would be psyched opening this on a special occasion.”
