Cake for a Good Cause


I was asked to make a cake for a 5k Cake Run/Walk. The 5k was a benefit for Jim Hughes a man in our city (He is 1st Counselor in our Stake Presidency) who has brain cancer. A few months before they found out he had cancer he had started his own business at home and hadn't set up insurance yet. Some women in our Stake set up this 5k and all proceeds will go towards medical bills for President Hughes. I jumped at the chance to volunteer when they asked if I would be willing to make a cake. Since 1st off I'm not anywhere close to inshape enough to run a 5k and 2nd off can't really train being pregnant and all. So I was happy to donate my time and some money to donate this cake for the winner of the women's division. It was actually quite fun to make and everything turned out lovely. It was so easy to decorate and no stress at all! It was so nice to not run into any problems and have everything run quite smoothly. It was the first time I made a bow like the one on the top. It was quick and easy to make and the cake frosted extremely well. Thankfully my fridge is capable to hold a 3 tier cake all put together since I had to go drop it of at 6:45am this morning. I was able to finish it all last night and run it to the race start this morning. I know President Hughes and his family could use prayers. So if you can add them in your prayers I know they would appriciate it. It's been a great testimony builder to see the solid faith they have had throughout this whole ordeal.
