Have you heard of Bake Me A Wish! before? Bake Me A Wish! provides freshly baked occasional cakes for all seasons and celebrations. They deliver the cakes overnight in an elegant box with a personalized gift card. Now, you cannot leave their site without being hungry. I know that I wouldn't mind a few of those cakes being sent to my house! They all look so good. Granted, I may need to walk on a treadmill after that, but it's all in the name of research, right?
The reason I am including them in my gift guide this year is because of what else they do. When you order a cake from them, they send an identical cake to a soldier in Iraq for their birthday. 5% of all their orders is used to assist their efforts in sending gourmet occasion cakes to soldiers overseas. Now, if you know someone over in Iraq who wouldn't mind a gourmet birthday cake, make sure you forward their name to them. I found myself tearing up just reading all the thank yous from soldiers receiving their cakes.
If you need a birthday cake, make sure you check out Bake Me A Wish! and see if you can help send a soldier a cake!
