Love of Chocolate Event Honors Families of Deployed Soldiers

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

This past weekend, Bake Me A Wish! had the pleasure of honoring families of deployed service members at the “Love of Chocolate” party in North Dakota in coordination with our good friend, Shelle Michaels, National Communications Officer for Soldiers Angels. Shelle has been a great ally in our effort to show deployed service members that they are not forgotten by us at home through our Operation Birthday Cake Program. The event was also brought together with Colonel Michael and was attended by David Sprynczynatyk, Major General and Adjunct General of the North Dakota National Guard as well as Lt. Governor Drew Wrigley.

This year, Bake Me A Wish was able to bring some additional smiles to the Love of Chocolate event as Bake Me A Wish cakes were handed out to family members deployed soldiers. Take a quick look at those faces below – happy to have some chocolate and know that we’re working to support their family members overseas.

Say Something Sweet! Giveaway

Friday, February 10th, 2012

It’s that time of year again! Time to show your romantic side – an excuse to be mushy, gushy and let our loved ones know that we care about them. You can write a poem, make dinner, give them a massage… there are lots of ways to express your love. Here at Bake Me A Wish!, we’re in love with sending people cake deliveries for their birthday, valentine’s day, anniversary – you name it. It makes us extraordinarily happy to make other people happy.

We want to spread the love even further this Valentine’s Day! We’re giving away 3 of our Freedom Cakes to our fans… they can be for you, or a loved one anywhere in the continental United States. Along with Each Gift, we’re also going to donate a cake in your recipients name to a deployed service member through our Operation: Birthday Cake program with our partner, Soldiers Angels. You feel good, we feel good and one of our dedicated soldiers, far from loved ones and home, will have a happier birthday.

Ooo – a tip of the hat from the Huffington Post for our Operation: Birthday Cake program! :) Lest we forget, our military personnel are still stationed away from loved ones around the world – we’re happy that we can bring a little joy to some of them on their birthday. With your help, we’ve delivered thousands of birthday cakes to soldiers overseas!
