Starting to Love Those Fall Mornings at the Farmer's Market!

Well, it doesn't look like fall yet but the mornings are feeling like it and that means only one more week until soda bread season! Chock full of apricots and currants with a hint of caraway, these loaves are perfect with morning coffee on the verandah (perfect if we have verandahs that is!). In the meantime, just to remind you of the summer that we're still in from the calendar's perspective, we'll have blackberry muffins this week at the Frederick Market. Fresh blackberries from our fair state in a moist, delicious muffin with a crunchy crumb topping that makes mornings that much sweeter. Don't forget to pick up some scones or croissants either. Chef Mark at L'Academie de Cuisine would be pleased to know that his recipe for hand-rolled croissants is so popular here in Frederick. As the holidays approach (let's not be in denial people), please consider having Cakes for Cause provide you with baked goods for your events, meetings or holiday dinners. We can custom-design desserts and pastries that work for you and we appreciate the opportunity.

If you didn't notice them hanging last week, check out the t-shirts that some of our volunteers are sporting this Saturday. We unveiled them officially at our volunteer appreciation picnic last Sunday but you can wear them too! The shirts are 100% cotton, retro designed and with one of our signature taglines on the back, "Everyone Deserves Dessert." These shirts are a great way you can support Cakes for Cause in the community. Hopefully people will ask you about us and you can share your experience with them. Only $20 and they're going fast so pick one up this week in Frederick.

You can get Cakes for Cause t-shirt swag and sweet treats at the Frederick Farmer's Market (Saturdays from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on Baughman's Lane behind the Holiday Inn) in addition to the best selection of artisan fruits/veggies, breads, and other specialties.

We need volunteers for both the Frederick Market and the Thursday Middletown Market. If the prospect of lemonade and baked goods doesn't interest you, we also have volunteer opportunities in several areas of organizational development.
