Cakes for Cause: We Have A MOTHER!!!!

Yes, we were successful last week at Cakes for Cause and we are noshing on a lovely, chewy, delicious sourdough loaf this morning. You too will be able to experience this yumminess every week now (we have a lot of mother!) at the Farmer’s Markets. As you know, Cakes for Cause is not a bread bakery (and won’t be even when we open the storefront) but we’ll have limited quantities in Middletown and West Frederick every week. If you got a chance to sample the potato rosemary loaf last week, we’ll be making that one as dinner rolls this week. Get there early!

Middletown Farmer’s Market
Thursdays 3-6 on Old Route 40 and Route 17 in Middletown

West Frederick Farmer’s Market
Saturdays 10-1 on Baughman’s Lane behind the Motel 6 on Route 40 in Frederick

Help Others In Frederick
This Saturday is a special one because on the first Saturday of every month, Cakes for Cause highlights another non-profit in the area and we donate 5% of our Farmer’s Market proceeds to them. On August 1st, 5% of our proceeds will go to benefit Hope Alive. Hope Alive, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering transitional housing and support services for homeless women and their children in Frederick County. Follow them on Twitter and Facebook, too! They have an anonymous donor that will match up to $100 of anything we help them raise so come on out, have our friendly volunteers help you stock up on baked goods and make a double difference for two community organizations in Frederick.

Speaking of Baked Goods…
Well, not really baked goods but equally yummy last week was our Arnold Palmer. Half lemonade and half iced tea = totally refreshing! It’s supposed to be hot, hot, hot this week so let our lemonade-istas shake it up for you. Holler, “I’d like an ARNOLD!” when you get to the front of the line and we’ll know what you mean.

**Important Calendar Note**
Next week, both our farmer’s market booths will be closed. We typically close for a week every August and January. Our staff has already taken vacation this year but you know what? We’re opening a bakery in less than TWO MONTHS!!!!!!! And we realized that we have a lot of administrative stuff that needs doing so we’re taking a week off from the baking (no full-scale panic please) to try and get it all done. Please don’t hold it against us…we’ll be back in Middletown on the 13th of August and in West Frederick on the 15th of August. Who knows, it might be possible to actually catch us at our offices next week! We’ll still send out an email to remind you and please read it because it will also have some special information on how to put your own personal stamp on the cafĂ© when we open our doors.
