That's what one New Jersey mother of three is whipping up to help keep her home out of foreclosure. Angela Logan of Teaneck, N.J., surpassed a goal of making 100 $40 "Mortgage Apple Cakes" in 10 days to meet her $2,559.94 mortgage payment. The Bergen Record reports the divorced actress has received more than 500 orders for her desserts, which she says fight "foreclosure one cake at a time."
"Purchase our moist delicious Mortgage Apple Cakes (M.A.Cs), made with loads of fresh Gala and Delicious apples and whole grain flour, covered with buttercream cheese frosting, made with vanilla and organic confection," Logan writes on her Web site. "It's a gourmet treat."
The enterprising entrepreneur made two cakes at a time from her home kitchen, but has since moved to a donated space in a local hotel where she's whipping up about 20 cakes a day, the paper said.
That's a good thing, considering on Tuesday city officials dropped by to deliver a cease-and-desist order to Logan's home as New Jersey state law won't allow bakers to use a residential kitchen for commercial use.
"We did not fine her," Wayne Fisher, Teaneck's health officer, told the Record. "That is not our intention. We are happy for her now, and we wish her well."
Logan did not return an interview request from Slashfood, but she told the Record that she'll keep on baking her mortgage cakes for the foreseeable future.
"I won't stop baking until people stop ordering," she told the Record this week. "It's been an outpouring of people wanting to help, and I want them to get their cakes. It'll be awhile, and I'm asking everyone to be patient."
