Mortgage Cake Baker Partners with Online Cake Seller

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.

    That is an amazing, very inspiring story!! God has passed this message to me… with perfect timing… today I was a little down… and needed this pick-me-up story… thank you so much! I bet you had no idea that you would do anything more than hopefully pay the bills… :)

  9. joann Says:

    What an inspiration!!! You go girl! I wish you well and hope that others will learn from your lesson. We all need to put our faith in action to see all God wants us to be.

    Blessings be yours(and your family).

    Great story! Hope you sell a million cakes this year!

  11. Dan Says:

    I just purchased a slice of your cake at Zoe’s in Teaneck… it was by far the most delicious cake in the world!!! If I wasn’t unemployed myself I would have bought an entire cake. But great work and good luck!

    Hi,
    We could always use a little advice and help…

    City Girl Cupcake was founded by Catherine Corrente and Isabella Veader, of Providence, Rhode Island. While attending rival Quaker schools Catherine and Isabella became close friends. Their common interest in baking for and helping the less fortunate was the catalyst for the forming of City Girl Cupcake. Inspired by their grandmothers and aunts, they opened City Girl Cupcake in June of 2009 as Providence’s first and only farm fresh and organic mobile cupcakery.

    City Girl Cupcake exists to feed children and families through selling homemade fresh and organic cupcakes. The net proceeds of all sales are donated to the cause, Feeding Americas Hungry Children. Each cupcake not sold is hand delivered to the Ronald McDonald House in Providence, Rhode Island. It is Catherine’s and Isabella’s hope that sick children and their families can hopefully put on a smile for a few minutes and dig into homemade cupcakes while they stay at the Ronald McDonald House while undergoing treatment at Hasbro Children’s Hospital. City Girl Cupcake pledges to help others in need through contributions and a passion for baking. Their belief in baking for a cause makes everyone smile.

    Good Day,

    I too was touched by the plight of Ms. Logan and I was thankful that I had a roof over my head. Hopefully many more people will benefit from the Mortage Apple Cake sales and take advantage of the cakes Bake Me a Wish have to offer as well. I can’t wait to try mine and share it with friends and family.

  14. Joann Says:

    All I have to say is, there is a GOD! Ask, Believe, and Receive abundantly. I was touched when I read about your story, Im happy for you.

  15. Val Waterman Says:

    Hi, I am hoping that you can develop a low- no sugar version of this cake for those of us that need to limit our sugar intake.

    Warm regards to you, Angela, and Mr. Kaye and kudos for such Yankee ingenuity!

    Val Waterman

  16. Stephanie Says:

    Angela- Good for you for trying to find a way out of your difficult situation! We ordered a cake today in support of your efforts and wish you success in your endeavors! :)

  17. jdornoff Says:

    Hi Val – We’re working with Angela on new recipes, new product idea, and our company is working on a sugar free / gluten free line (*fingers crossed!*)… there’s a lot more to come from Angela and Bake Me A Wish, this is just the beginning… Also, as the cake will continue to be sold on our site, we’re going to have a charitable give back to help out others. That will be announced in the coming months. Have a terrific weekend!

    All My Best, Joseph Dornoff, VP of Marketing and Operations

  18. Tiffany Says:

    Love this story!!! I was also happy to learn about bake a wish and other cake options that help charitable causes. I love to bake myself, but I will keep this is mind for my family’s birthdays back on the East Coast (I live in CA). I’ll be sure to order a cake!

  19. Timi Bliss Says:

    What a “feel good” story reminding us in these troubling times that there’s still a lot of good in the world.

  20. Saundra Says:

    Love your story. I love to bake too but my daughter and I will be purchasing a cake soon because we want to support you. Your story is inspirational. I just retired and a friend gave me an idea for my cakes that I plan to pursue shortly. I remember my Mom and her friends doing “rent parties” back in the day which is what your M.A.C. cakes reminded me of. My cakes may become “retirement income” cakes for me. May God continue to bless you. You don’t ever have to worry about your mortgage again.

    Hi,

    I saw your story on CNN and was extremely moved and inspired! My husband and I lost our business and income due to the recession. We are struggling to make it. We have lost everything that we worked for over the last eighteen years. My husband did find a new job, but it’s tough to make it on his new salary. I am looking for ways to supplement our income while still staying home with our youngest son. I have three wonderful, delicious, family cake recipes that I would like to share. Can you give me some advice on how to start in my area? What did you do exactly? My cake recipes are for a Lazy Daisy Oatmeal cake, Applesauce cake and a Butterscotch bundt cake. Any help would be appreciated. We are trying to stay in our home too and not uproot our children. Thank you in advance for any advice. Good luck to you! I will be buying one your cakes!

  22. JoAnn Says:

    What a heart warming story! There are now other families attempting the same to save their homes. This will probably be written about in the history books that my grandchildren will read in 15 years, a rough economic time, and how people baked their way out of it. I was thrilled to find the website for Bake a Wish, and I was touched how the owner reached out to help. The cakes look wonderful, and with 24 immediate family members, I will definitely be ordering cakes for loved ones far away. How about a “dairy free” cake? I have a granddaughter severely allergic, and so far, angel food cake is the only store bought one with no milk.

  23. Tonya Says:

    Ms. Angela, He may not come when you call him, but he’ll be right there on time. GOD is a good all the time.
    Now go and get you a couple of interns to decorate the cakes to cut back on hiring a staff.

    I wish you SWEET SUCESS!!!!

  24. Paula Says:

    My 9 yr old son and I had just started selling salsa at a local farmers market when your story was on CNN. My husband said that I was nuts. Although we live in a very rural area in Cal, our salsa is selling well.
    We still have more hoops to jump through, and will do so as the money comes in ! We started Diego’s (my sons name ) Awesome Salsa, and the confidance it has given him is fantastic! He can now count back change, speak and promote to anyone and it has been a great bonding experience for us. We only hope and pray that we will be as successful as you!
    Best Wishes and Rock on!

    Hi there, I wish you all the best and luck in saving your home! I myself is going threw the same thing, we had companies take money from us and then tell us they couldn’t help, our mortage company didn’t want to help us either! We hired a lawyer to do a loan modification and behold they screwed up and our payments are more than what we had! So long story short, I was forced to leave my home( which I love) move in with my husband’s parents, and do a short sale on my home ( which we just listed) before we foreclose!! We’ve tried everything to stay there but the system didn’t help us, so we gave up! I wish you all the best and I will order a cake from you ( for my girlfriend’s bday) to help you! Please keep us posted on how this all turns out for you!! All the best! —Jennifer

    I received your cake and it is delicious. To me, it tasted even better because I was soooo excited to be able to help in some way. I read the article in today’s paper that you were able to take care of your mortgage issues and you have a new career on the horizon. Wonderful news!!!! I’m very happy for you. Keep up the good work. Have a blessed life!!

  27. joanne Says:

    I’ve reread the e-mail I sent earlier today. How odd it is that the piece discussing the new price of the cake is missing. I hope the management consideres the comment. Originally, I planned on purchasing one for the holiday season while sharing Angela’s story. Sadly, I will not be able to purchase another at that price.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  28. You are Says:

    I DVR the Wendy Williams Show and listened to your story regarding the Mortgage Apple Cake. I too was in the same boat and I learned from you that with action and faith anything is possible. I too was in the same position wringing my hands wondering what could I do to help myself. What I did was attend my court sessions and finally my mortgage was modified. My brain went from hot to cold because I was thinking about what I could do to bring money into the house.n

    You are my inspiratio

  29. Lauren Says:

    I work for Greenpath, and it is an honor to read your story. I deal with people losing their homes everyday..What a great idea:) I will be putting in my order soon.

I’m in a bit of a rush in this instance to totally browse your website but I have bookmarked it and also signed up for your RSS feeds. I will be back in a day or two. Thanks for a great website.

  31. J. Alfred Says:

    God is An Awesome God!!! I just want you to know,that I am going through a similar situation and just how you and BakeMeaWish Bakery has inspired me to find a way to get my product to the masses. Reading your article could not have come at a better time in my life and the most difficult time in my life as well. But,because of your story,I have faith that someone will have the same reaction to my product and make my dream a reality and more. Thank you for helping me see that I can turn my passion into profit and really start to enjoy what I have always wanted in life and that is peace and contentment!! May God continue to bless you!!!!
