Batter Up

cakes for cause!

You find peppermint lattes putrid. And you caught Santa ogling your cleavage at the mall.

Don’t OD on holly jolly sugary sweetness. Volunteer with Cakes for Cause, instead.

The nonprofit gives underserved teens work experience by making them apprentices in the organization’s commercial bakery.

Sign up to mentor a student; share your background with the group (from budget balancing to how you found your career path); or volunteer for one-time, seasonal events. Next up: Roll and bake holiday gingerbread and sugar cookie men at a local cooking school to help raise funds.

If time is short, visit the charity’s new cafe and social enterprise, Moxie Bakery & Cafe. Set inside Frederick’s community center, it’s a darling destination for scones, croissants, locally roasted coffee, cookies, and desserts.

It’s all in good taste.
