Cakes for Cause: Go West to the Farmer's Market

Shout Out to Our Customers!
Lots of our Cakes for Cause "regulars" came out to the Farmer's Market last week and it was great to see you. We hope we kept some of your favorites and you also got to try some new products. For those of you who don't know us as well, our retail focus is on small-batch, hand-crafted baked goods. We use whole ingredients (local, when possible) and like to play a little with our food (who doesn't really?). You'll often see us experiment with fresh herbs from our garden and we like to shake things up a little bit in the cookie department. If you've tried something and don't see it every week, take a moment to let us know what you're craving...we'll do our best to accommodate. Don't forget, we also take special orders that we can deliver at the market or anytime during the week.

The West Frederick Farmer's Market will be holding its kick-off event on Saturday May 30th. Come out and join us at Baughman's Lane from 10:00-1:00 for special events, music, and the freshest that the season has to offer. Cakes for Cause will be selling special biscuits that will be perfect for your strawberry shortcakes (and we should start to see strawberries by then). But don't wait until the 30th! Every Saturday, we have our freshly baked cinnamon rolls, hand-rolled butter croissants and danish, and delicious scones and cookies. Our lemonade experts are also available with classic and strawberry to quench your thirst on hot days.

Volunteer with Cakes for Cause
Our farmer's market booth is staffed by volunteers. It's a great way to meet people if you're new in town. It's a fun way for your civic, church, or school group to get involved in the community. If you'd like to volunteer with us at the West Frederick Farmer's Market, link to our volunteer calendar here and sign up with us on a Saturday. You'll get to nosh on pastry, talk about pastry, and let others know about Cakes for Cause (and how our pastry helps youth who have aged out of foster care to gain real job skills).

Cakes for Cause is honored to have been nominated for a CALM PeaceCrafters Award ( this year. If you'd like to join us on Monday May 18th, visit CALM's website for ticket information.

Cakes for Cause in the Community
As part of our ongoing effort to support local non-profit organizations during challenging fundraising times, Cakes for Cause will donate 5% of our farmer's market proceeds to Frederick's United Way on Saturday Mary 30th. The local United Way provides support for non-profit agencies that benefit and strengthen our community in so many ways. It was founded in 1938 and raises more than $1,000,000 annually to address the core issues of education, income, and health for Frederick's most vulnerable residents.

Take Us Out To the Ballgame
Cakes for Cause baseball t-shirts are here and they're moving fast. The hottest accessory in town is available in ladies and men's sizes. Perfect to start up conversations about Cakes for Cause, these shirts are a comfortable and hip alternative to your normal weekend wear. Remember, if you've bought one of our shirts before, they're only $18. We've also heard that sometimes people give special deals to customers if they see them wearing one of our shirts...we're just saying, you never know! Join our team!
