Mortgage Apple Cakes
Nothing in season at this time. Check back!
"My grandmother taught me how to bake. I can smell the aroma of nutmeg baking in her cakes right now," says Angela Logan with a big smile.
Raised in Georgia, she came to New York City to pursue acting, and she was "red hot before 2008." Then came a series of setbacks – her agency shuttered overnight, a contractor racked up bad mistakes on her house, and the economy took a dive. In describing the sudden standstill, she says, "In acting, we call it 'crickets'." Soon her home was in foreclosure.
She broke the silence with steady clip, clip sounds in her mixing bowl. "Making the cakes helped me to feel grounded," she explains. She also created an email campaign: "Buy a Cake, Save a Home," and sent it to everyone she knew. The press picked up her story, and within hours, her friends and family set up shop in the living room to respond to all the orders.
They even got orders from American soldiers in Iraq, but Angela worried the cakes wouldn't ship well in the heat. "I told them, 'When you get home, I'll send you a cake'."
And she did. Then one cake at a time, she saved her home.
