The local commercial bakery that make the tasty DC Sweet Potato Cakes, Delectable Cakery has launched a special campaign that allows the public to show its appreciation for local healthcare workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. The effort also helps provide financial support to the bakery, which has had to reduce production and layoff staff as a result of the nationwide shutdown.
As part of what it is calling “Cakes for a Cause,” Delectable Cakery is planning to provide free DC Sweet Potato Cakes to healthcare workers at multiple area hospitals. To raise funds for this effort, the public is being asked to visit the bakery’s website and purchase a cake or multiple cakes to be given away. Delectable Cakery’s goal is to raise enough money to be able to donate 5,000 cakes.
Delectable Cakery’s website is dcsweetpotatocake.com.
