Mission: Cakes on Wheels is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization based in Minneapolis, MN that bakes and delivers birthday cakes for kids in need. We believe that every kid is special and deserves to have a cake on his or her Birthday! When parents can’t afford to do so, we bake a cake from scratch and we deliver it to their home so they can have a candle to blow and a chance to make a wish. We use all natural, organic ingredients and make not only a delicious cake but also one that is as nutritious as possible.
Results: We have baked and delivered over 100 cakes this last year to children in need. We look forward to expanding our reach in 2013!
Target demographics: Low-income/At-risk families with children ages 1-18 in the Minneapolis-St.Paul metro area
Geographic areas served: Minneapolis-St.Paul, MN

Urban Ventures has had to priviledge to work with Cake on Wheels over the last year, as Veronica has provided birthday cakes for our youth participant of our low-income families. It has been a blessing to know that a simple cake is bringing together our families and allowing our youth to know someone cares about them and wants to celebrate their BIRTH! Veronica has always been super flexible, understanding, and great to work with. Since we serve a diverse community, it is extremely helpful that she has been able to communicate in English & Spanish. WE LOVE CAKE ON WHEELS! Thank you!

I had the opportunity to see Vero at work this past summer. The task on hand was to make and decorate 800 mini cupcakes for foster kids. Vero managed to have them all baked by the time the decorators arrived!! She was so organized that between the four of us the task was rapidly accomplished. She is a pleasure to work with, friendly, passionate about providing happiness to others, caring, overall an all around wonderful person.

Veronica does excellent work in the community. She brings smiles to kids, and relief to parents. The parents that I have worked with and she has provided cakes for, are extremely grateful to her, because without her wonderful work, their children probably would not have a birthday celebration. Thanks for the work you do!

Vero is very passionate about the work she does. It helps that she has a very supportive family! Vero could not do what she does, without immense compassion and kindness. It is amazing to see her at work. I was humbled that I was able to volunteer with Cakes on Wheels!
