The first day of autumn is here and boy, are we ready for cool, crisp evenings, changing colors and dark mornings. Wait...rewind, it's harder to wake up when it's dark outside! Unless you have a cup of hot coffee and a scone to help you get going in the morning. Saturdays at the Frederick Farmer's Market (10:00-1:00 on Baughman's Lane behind the Quality Inn) and the Cakes for Cause booth can help. Fresh croissants, scones, and breads each week to get you energized for the coming cold months...shoot us an email if you're going to be late to the market and we'll hold your treats for you. If you haven't yet tried the soda bread, it's a winner for breakfast or for dinner. Our shortbread bites are a favorite as well-melt in your mouth deliciousness. They're also perfect for a holiday cookie tray and we take orders for your parties, office functions, and holiday dinners.

 Our holiday fundraiser started early and is going strong so far but we do still have boxes of cookies available to order. If you're of the cookie-decorating bent, we can help with that. Our holiday fundraiser is sales of pre-rolled and cut gingerbread and sugar cookie boys and girls. All you have to do is slide them in the oven and bake them off...decorating is up to you. These are mouthwatering gingerbread and sugar cookies, created in small batches, just like all our pastries. They make great gifts...just tie a ribbon around the box. Each box contains 2 ½ dozen raw, frozen cookies and will be delivered at several sites in the area in the first weeks of December. Just $ us to help you make the holidays less stressful this year.

There's lots of ways you can support Cakes for Cause. We are always looking for volunteers and we have several opportunities available. Click here if you're interested in volunteering. We'd like to remind you that all the proceeds from our retail sales, from donations, and from our fundraising events go to support the mission of our organization. Your financial contributions help us to provide job training, community development, and life skills training to youth who have been in the foster care system. We will teach these youth practical vocational skills and critical life skills that will help them obtain and maintain employment into adulthood. If you'd like to make a tax-deductible contribution, you may mail it to Cakes for Cause, PO Box 3452, Frederick, MD 21705 (please be patient with us, we're setting up our online donations site now). Thank you for your generous support to our organization.
