Cakes for Cause Update

Well, really we're just running behind this week and we apologize. We know that you look forward to your Cakes for Cause email each week almost as much as we enjoy writing it. So here it is, a little late but still in your inbox...enjoy!

Because we like the French…
Or at least we like what the French eat! We’re introducing yet another fun-to-say treat: Palmiers! (say it all together now, “palm-ee-aye”) We’ve now broadened your horizons to TWO French words (Jalousie, anyone?). And they taste good, too. This puff pastry, cardamom-sugared cookie is melt-in-your-mouth delicious (perfect with a cup of coffee)! Stop by all three locations this week to taste them for yourself.

Middletown Farmer’s Market
Thursdays 3-6 on Old Route 40 and Route 17 in Middletown
West Frederick Farmer’s Market
Saturdays 10-1:00 on Baughman’s Lane behind the Motel 6 on Route 40 in Frederick
Chartreuse & Co. Tag Sale
3rd Friday of each month on 85 South towards Buckeystown

Tis the season…
For ice cream sandwiches! And our chocolate chocolate chip cookies work fabulously for making your very own. Just take two of our cookies, a slightly soft scoop of your favorite ice cream (Mint chocolate chip? Cappuccino? Vanilla bean?), gently squish ‘em all together and get your very own homemade ice cream sandwich (after re-freezing them for a bit). We know it works because we’ve tried it ourselves (and shared it with some happy friends). So come buy chocolate chocolate chip cookies in even numbers at all the markets this week.

Since we’ve been easy on you…
We’re now bringing it to you with some t-shirt harassment! Do you have the latest Cakes for Cause shirt? If not, then you’re a slacker. Not really, but we’ve had our newest edition out for a couple of months and you'd better hurry—we only print a certain number so when they’re gone, they’re gone. Because they’re a baseball-style shirt you can also say you’re on our team (but not if you don’t have the gear) and what team isn’t a winner that provides lemonade and cookies at every event? They're available at every market we attend.

Do you know where the barn is?
If not, then you’re missing out. Join us this Friday morning beginning at 8:30 at the Chartreuse & Co. tag sale. We’ll be there with all kinds of breakfast treats to fuel your shopping. And if you’re like us, you’ll still be wandering the grounds looking for amazing deals in the afternoon and will need re-energizing with lemonade and a cookie. Chartreuse is a barn fully stocked with cool things! You will find vintage and modern hip home goods: ranging from new Victorian dressers to old farm benches, to chic accessories. Check out their website for more info.

The Mission of Cakes for Cause is to empower vulnerable youth and develop social enterprises that engage the community in cultivating meaningful employment and educational opportunities to teach work and life skills. In Frederick, Cakes for Cause will open a bakery/café in mid-August that trains youth in the hospitality industry.
