OUR STORY

Ash_and_cake.jpg

Sweet Blessings' founder, Ashley Boyd Gann, did not always want to be a baker.  It wasn't until she was in her 30s that she decorated her first cake.  Sensing that God brought cakes in her life for a reason, her family prayed for close to five years for His will.  Ashley researched a group that connects professional bakers with critically ill children, but that still wasn't the answer.  One morning during church the pastor was speaking about outreach efforts in downtown Lexington, KY.  It was then that she realized that sick children are not the only ones living in crisis, children in poverty are living in crisis as well.  God had put cakes in her life to use cake to reach out to his children.

OUR CAKES

Sweet Blessings isn't a bakery, it is a non-profit ministry which creates happy birthdays and  unforgettable cakes for 5-14 year olds living in poverty or with a life threatening illness.  All cakes are yellow with white frosting, covered in fondant, and either multiple tiers or three dimensional shapes.  Cakes are made with a specific child in mind and decorated in his or her favorite colors, hobbies, sports teams, etc.  Sweet Blessings accepts referrals from schools, churches and social service providers. If you are an individual who would like to recommend a child for a Sweet Blessings cake, please contact a pastor, social worker or service provider which works with the child.
