So I learned this week, as some of you might know that Brenda and Mary Maher owners of Cakegirls Chicago, featured on Amazing Wedding Cakes and many Food Network cake challenges, lost their bakery in a fire! Thankfully no one was hurt. The fire broke out in an upstairs apartment early on March 29th. The building was deemed a total loss later that day and was demolished. From what I understand they lost just about everything! Ohhh How devastating!!!
These Cakegirls do some awesome decorating and have been an inspiration to me not only artisitcally, but as business women. Anyone who owns a small business knows the blood, sweat, and tears that go into gettting your name out there, and building a strong company. Having to rebuild will certainly be a challenge for these very talented confectioners.
If you can go to ther website and purchase a cake girls t-shirt, not only because you’ve always wanted one, but because the proceeds will go to help keep their staff members affloat while they regroup and rebuild. Its good cake kharma.
