For the past few months we have been featuring a Cake of the Week and each Thursday, we post a photo of this cake on our Instagram page, encouraging our followers to enter a contest to win a free 6” cake voucher.
While online giveaways are great, we also want to give a cake to local difference-makers. So each Thursday, our Bliss bakers bake two cakes: one for you to sample by the slice at our downtown shop, and a second to give to a local non-profit. We love our community partners and our weekly cake giveaway is our small way of thanking them for all they do for this city.
Below are a few of the nonprofits we’ve reached out to so far. If you’d like to get in contact with them or learn more about each of them, give them a follow on social media! (Just check out each organization's website for their social handles).
