It has been a month of special moments for Cakes for a Cure!
My grandmother and my cousins, all inspirations for the charities that I support, were here visiting. My grandmother, who inspired me to support The Michael J. Fox Foundation, even helped me deliver two cakes. It was so special. Delivering cakes is very fun because I love to see people's reaction to the cake that I made for them. I was so happy and grateful to experience this with her.
Also, my cousins Kamryn and Kaitlyn, who inspired me to support The Children’s Tumor Foundation, and their family visited from Texas. We baked together and ate lots of cake (and frosting!). I made my first red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, it was amazing. I highly recommend it!
I was in full cake production mode for the Fourth of July this year. A big thank you to Mrs. Mulheran for ordering a special cake for her family. She also included me in their neighborhood’s Fourth of July party which was super fun! I made two half-sheet vanilla cakes for the celebration. It was very fun and everyone was extremely generous and kind. Cakes for a Cure raised money for all three charities at the party.
I also got to make two half sheet cakes for my cousin Sig's graduation party. He's headed off to Nebraska for college this fall. I think the cakes turned out great and everyone enjoyed them. Congratulations Sig, and thank you Uncle Sig and Auntie Karina for ordering the cakes and your continued support!
A big thank you to all of the other wonderful people that supported Cakes for a Cure this last month:
I am within $400 of my $3,000 goal for 2017 -- Cakes for a Cure has raised $2,681 for charities, baking a difference one cake at a time.
