How We Impact the Community

Has the thought of a child without a birthday cake ever crossed your mind? Unfortunately, it happens all the time.

We bake and deliver birthday cakes for children in foster care, group homes, at domestic violence and human trafficking shelters, in low-income housing with or without a parent, and sometimes to a child experiencing homelessness. We’ve baked 672 custom cakes since 2018.

Cake4Kids is powered by an amazing and compassionate group of 150 volunteers who are mostly home-bakers. They bake the cake at home and deliver it to one of our partner agencies who support the youth. Our volunteers never meet the children we support, but every cake is custom-made for each child and an enormous amount of love is baked into each one.

It may just be a cake, but the child who receives the cake knows that a stranger took the time and effort to do something special just for them.


Angel is a very humble young boy and he wasn’t expecting much on his birthday. We presented the Minion cake (his favorite character) after dinner and he couldn’t contain his excitement, he jumped out of his chair and did a “happy dance” around the room.” … “I’m just happy that people actually care about me”
