A little over a week ago, the Cakegirls shop succumbed to a fire. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but the shop is gone, destroyed. Nothing was salvageable. As small business owners ourselves, we know how devastating this must be for Brenda and Mary. While we sympathize, we cannot begin to imagine what they must be going through. Our hearts go out to you. We wish you a speedy recovery through this.
Here's where you come in. Visit the Cakegirls website, where you can purchase a Cakegirls t-shirt for just $20. Proceeds from the shirts will suplement the income of the shop employees while they rebuild.
For those of you not familiar with Cakegirls, if you've ever seen Food Network Challenge, you've probably seen Brenda and Mary. They are a sister team from Chicago and make some amazing cakes. Challenge is one of my favorite shows to watch, and I particularly love when they are competing. Their work is amazing, and they've won a couple times. Their website doesn't have their portfolio on it right now, but check back again soon to see their impressive body of work.
