A Wish To Be Thankful For…

Monday, November 30th, 2009

This past Wednesday, Bake Me A Wish! honored the Friends of Island Academy by providing them with a delicious Thanksgivingtable Dinner for their staff and students.  At the event, each member of the organization went around to say what they are thankful for – which was quite an experience.  Many of us take for granted the support we receive from friends, teachers, and family, but we all can learn something from these young adults.  Few of us know what it is like to have the challenges these teenagers face, and with the help of FOIA, they are rebuilding their lives and moving in a positive direction.

You too can help support FRIENDS by ordering a Change Your Life Cake from Bake Me A Wish!

FRIENDS OF ISLAND ACADEMY

studentsFriends of Island Academy (FOIA) reaches out to youth prior to their release from Rikers Island. Our name reflects the Board of Education school located on Rikers-Island Academy, which is attended by many of the youth while incarcerated. Upon discharge, FOIA provides job training, counseling, education, mentoring, and youth leadership development. In return, participants are expected to stay out of trouble, take responsibility for themselves, and work to rebuild their lives.

Who is the King of Cakes?

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Naturally, we think Bake Me A Wish! is… but AOL has a great article posted that discusses the strengths of the Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss.  The team here in the office loves both shows (how do they make those amazing wedding and party cakes!??), but we’d have to go with Cake Boss.

Take a moment out of your busy Holiday schedule to read the write-ups on both shows and then vote at the end of the article for you favorite!  Who will win!?

“In this corner: Champ Duff Goldman, star of the Food Network’s custom cake show ‘Ace of Cakes.’ Every week at Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Md., Duff and his team of hipster bakers build confections that defy both imagination and gravity for events such as weddings, movie premieres and the Super Bowl.

And in this corner: Contender Buddy Valastro, star of TLC’s ‘Cake Boss.’ Each week at Carlo’s Bake Shop in Hoboken, NJ, Buddy and his crew (most of whom are family members) create equally elaborate cakes for customers ranging from Sweet Sixteens to the American Museum of Natural History.”

We’ve launched our season greetings occasion on the site (www.bakemeawish.com) as well as our festive Chocolate Mint Chip cake – back by popular demand. In coordination with our friends over at Fabulous Fun Finds, you can win a delicious mint chip cake this year! Check out their blog for our wonderful review and your chance to win!

“Looking for a festive decadent treat to send to a family, friends or employees this holiday season? Bake Me a Wish has a large variety of premium gourmet birthday and occasion cakes that are available for delivery nationwide. Many of you follow my blog daily and are well aware that I have been in serious need of comfort food the last couple of weeks and let me tell you the Chocolate Mint Chip Cake by Bake Me a Wish is definitely comfort food that will satisfy. I will admit I ate this entire cake by myself. No, not in one sitting, but there was a couple days in October where I was on a chocolate diet. Mint was my mother’s favorite flavor, so I grew up with a chocolate and mint combination in desserts frequently.”
