The Army’s 237th Birthday Cake

Monday, June 18th, 2012

HAPPY 237th BIRTHDAY TO THE ARMY!

We hope that everyone had a great Father’s Day with Dad and  is ready for a wonderful summer!  As always, we’ll continue to celebrate birthdays all year round by delivering gourmet birthday cakes for your loved ones.  As part of our regular offering, we also deliver cakes to deployed soldiers through our Operation Birthday Cake program – we full support our military personnel overseas with donations and birthday cake delivery online.

That said, we couldn’t resist sharing this wonderful article on the Army’s 237th birthday. Mr. Buddy Valestro, of Cake Boss fame, created a tank of a cake! Literally!   They celebrated their birthday right here in NYC.  You can read the full article over at the Daily Mail, but you’ll find a picture of his creation below. That a great cake… but I doubt we could ship it! :)

Honors from Iraq

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

As you know, 5% of our online sales are attributed to our partnership with Soldiers Angels to provide gourmet birthday cakes to deployed service members overseas as part of our Operation Birthday Cake program.  To date, we’ve sent thousands of cakes either from retail purchases or direct donations made possible by our shoppers who simply sent a cake to a loved one for their birthday.  Each and every day we receive soldier responses about how we’ve helped boost morale while our military personnel are fighting for our freedoms so far from home.

Today, we received a fine honor from Cpt. Dan over at the 14th Trans. Battalion at the Joint Base Balad, Iraq.  There is no greater feeling than to receive recognition for the good works you are doing; this wonderful command team encourages to keep on sending cakes and keep on letting our service members know they are appreciated and valued by their citizens back at home.

An Honor From Afghanistan

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Earlier this week Bake Me A Wish! received a true gift from the 772nd Expeditionary Airlift Squadron – an U.S. flag flown on their mission this past December over the skies of Afghanistan!  Thank you so very much!  We are more than flattered by the thoughts of these good men and women and will cherish this token of their appreciation.  We’re just trying to decide where to hang it in our office!  :o )

We continue to work to hard through our Operation: Birthday Cake program to show our service men and women overseas that we have not forgotten they are in harms way – that we remember their efforts.  5% of each cake sold on our site helps us donate more birthday cakes overseas to troops with our partner Soldiers’ Angels. This honor belongs to all our readers and customers – a big thanks to you to for visiting and shopping with us.
