WOW!  Thanksgiving week already!  I know someone we need to thankful for here at Bake Me a Wish!  YOU!  That’s why we’re going to give away a Thanksgiving cake to one of our lucky readers.  All you have to do is post a thanksgiving memory here on our blog, we’ll choose our favorite one and have a cake arrive to that person on Wednesday!  HURRY THOUGH!  We have to decide on a winner by NOON tomorrow (post your memory by Tues, 11/23 at noon).  You’ll get to select the cake flavor of your choice!

So what’s your favorite memory from Thanksgiving!?  Personally, I’ll never forget the last time my grandmother was with us for Thanksgiving – it was a “nothing special” Thanksgiving that turned out to be very dear to my heart.   I miss you and am thankful to have known you Gran!

Happy Birthday Mickey!

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

82 years ago today, Mickey Mouse appeared on the silver screen for the first time as Steamboat Willie.  I grew up with and am a big fan of Mickey; I’ve probably seen everything that he’s been animated in to.  He will always remain a symbol of fairness, kindheartedness and goodness in this world – an amazing feat for a cartoon!  I think my favorite character he was drawn into was a Bob Crachit in “A Disney Christmas Carol” – true type casting as for this special little mouse who touches millions of people.

So I ask you readers, if you could bake Mickey a cake, what flavor would it be?  I’m thinking…. New York Cheesecake.

Thanks for all the smiles Mickey!

Remember Our Veterans

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Bake Me A Wish! would like to take a moment to remind everyone that the Freedom we enjoy came at a price; a sincere thank you and warmest blessings to our military personnel from yesterday, today and tomorrow. Through them, we have piece of mind and live in the best country in the world.

Our company contributes 5% of it’s online revenue to sending gourmet birthday and holiday cakes to deployed soldiers overseas – we shouldn’t need a single day to remind us of their efforts. To be sure, they are in our thoughts and prayers everyday.

Please view this video about the work we’re doing with Soldiers’ Angels to ensure that our military men and women are remembered and appreciated throughout the year.
