Paula Deen, Debbi Fields…and now, Angela Logan.

These are the women who have turned bad situations into very lucrative ones with some sugar and flour. And in Angela’s case, it also saved her house.

Here’s the story: Angela Logan was facing foreclosure on her New Jersey home after a series of unfortunate events created the perfect storm for her to fall behind on her mortgage payments (storm damage, an unscrupulous contractor and the collapse of an agency that owed her thousands…and took it with them). But after draining her accounts and those of her son and boyfriend, she still couldn’t make the payments. So, she turned to an old family recipe for apple cake…and it saved the day.

Even Leathernecks love our cakes!

I recently received a delicious chocolate cake from my girlfriend through your company. I was a little apprehensive at first about eating a cake that spent a couple days flying in the belly of an aircraft across the Atlantic. Well, let me tell you, this thing was delicious. I couldn’t believe that it was still moist in the middle. I would like to thank you for taking the time to remember those of us who are serving our grateful Nation abroad. We are truly thankful for your patriotism. The attached pictures were taken on my Birthday on August 24. The Marines in the pictures have been in Al Asad, Iraq since January 2009. Thanks again.

No one has to tell me: I believe in the power of cake. And so does the terrific company called Bake Me A Wish that makes and ships some of the most scrumdidliumptious cakes all around the world.
Last week, I was invited to a Bake Me A Wish cake tasting. Wild horses couldn’t have kept me away – I have an undeniable sweet tooth. And thank goodness I am immune to wild horses, because this tasting was all I could have dreamed it to be. There were cakes of all shapes, sizes, and flavors: chocolate, chocolate and caramel; coconut; carrot with REAL cream cheese frosting; and flour-less chocolate cake (which I always seem to think is low carb, for some hopeful reason). It was like being a kid in a delicious bakery. Give me a mug of Eight O’Clock coffee, and I’d call it a perfect night.

CREATIVE HOMEOWNER BAKES CAKES
August 3, 2009
Posted by Natalie Rodriguez

…But I’m personally most impressed by the hustle of cash-strapped Teaneck, New Jersey resident Angela Logan, who started baking “Mortgage Apple Cakes” or MACs and selling them for $40 a pop to pay her $2,559.54 mortgage payment so she could keep her house.

Angela managed to snag a corner in the kitchen of Hasbrouck Heights Hilton hotel to do her cooking, and now she’s selling her confections nationwide through Bake Me a Wish. She’s already received more than the necessary 100 orders to pay off that month’s due, and she’s planning on continue to bake and sell her cakes for as long as possible. Now that’s some creative D-I-Y if you ask me…

Home Sweet Home: How Angela Logan Saved Her House By Baking

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

POSTED: AUGUST 3, 2009

After a bad storm last December caused serious damage to her home in Teaneck, New Jersey, things for Angela Logan went from bad to worse. The contractor she hired ended up causing even more damage to her house, forcing Logan to pay $50,000 in repairs and leaving her house unfinished. The modeling agency that hired Logan went belly up without paying her several thousands of dollars for jobs she had already completed. That’s when her mortgage payments started to go downhill. Next thing the 55-year-old actress/model knew she was close to losing the house she has lived in for the last 20 years to foreclosure. That’s when she decided to set a goal and bake her way out of her financial problems. Logan was able to raise enough money to make her mortgage payments and may have even found a new calling through this experience. She spoke to ESSENCE.com about how she used her famous Mortgage Apple Cakes to save her from imminent foreclosure, who helped her get the word out and what she hopes other people will learn from her story.

ESSENCE.COM: How did you come up with the idea to sell cakes to help raise the money you needed?
ANGELA LOGAN: I met with a credit counselor who told me about a refinancing program called Making Homes Affordable. I signed up for it but it took at least three months to get a response from them. Once we did, they said, okay, now you have to make the first payment. This program was going to significantly decrease my mortgage but in order to get it I had to pay off all my bills and make three mortgage payments for the rest of the year. I had to find a way to get that money. So, I made a plan. I was going bake and sell 100 cakes at $40 per cake in 10 days.
