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
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.
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!
