TEANECK, NJ – Adversity does indeed breed creativity. A New Jersey resident has successfully baked her way out of foreclosure!
Angela Logan has lived in her home in Teaneck, New Jersey for 20 years. Like many Americans these days, she has been hit with both employment and mortage troubles. After being tremendously overcharged for work done on her home and then a talent agency gone bust that owed her thousands of dollars in backpay, Logan was in serious debt.
In order to qualify for President Obama’s Making Home Affordable plan, she had to come up with a $2,500 mortgage payment in just 10 days in order to qualify. So she dreamed up the plan of baking her delicious grandmother’s apple cake, with all organic ingredients, and selling them. At $40 a cake, Logan would be able to keep her home.
Little did she know that demand would go through the roof! Within a week she had received orders for 100 cakes, meeting her goal. But after newspapers started publishing her story, she was up to 600 orders! There was no way Logan was going to be able to bake them by herself in her tiny kitchen.
Luckily, Josh Kaye, founder of Bake Me A Wish, a not-for-profit bakery that sells baked goods for charitable causes, stepped in and had his kitchens to take over the bulk of the baking, as well as delivering the cakes.
The program has been so successful, Logan is well on her way to a renegotiated loan and lower mortgage, and will be giving a portion of the sales to other people in need.

  1. Angela,
    I am so happy for you. I am losing my home and my daughter and sister are trying to help me keep[ it. This is all we have. The loan modification person is not calling me back or giving me a status of my application. I was working but my income was cut due to early forced retirement and I think they don''t want to work with me anymore. It all seemed fine when I was working. I really don't know what to do. I try making notes of my strengths to find out what I can do to bring up my income. i have applied for several jobs but nothing has opened up. Thank God you found you niche. Love MizzLavender

    • What a wonderful idea and I am glad that Angela has been sucessful. I have been working with a lawyer to assist me in loan modification.
      So far, things seem to be going well. The mortgage company's do not seem to want to listen to the home owner, but they are forced to abide by an attorney. My attorney ordered a forensic study of my mortgage, so that she could find illegal acts that mortgage companies are using or have used to get us in this mess.

  2. What a creative idea to bake your way out of foreclosure Angel. However my problem is more complicated. I have been working with an attorney to have my mortgage modified. So far, so good. Mortgage companies do not want to listen to the homeowner,but are forced to listen to an attorney. My attorney is doing a forensic study on my mortgage.

  3. I'm really happy for this lady! She faced a dire situation and took it head-on! This should serve as an inspirational message to all about not giving up. Suicide is not the answer as others facing foreclosure have done.

  5. I have been a Chef for the past 25 years, I have made some very fine Gourmet foods, as we did Parties for 2-3-hundred people at a time. one thing I have perfected is a Banana Bread, which we served with Ice Cream.We only use whole eggs, pure butter,fresh bananas, and vanilla.I now offer them for sale.

  6. My Name Judy Josey I am really happy for this lady. She was faced with losing her home and took matters head on. I myself am in the same situatuion. I have been looking for a place to bake my bread puddings. My parents house is now in foreclosure. The mortgage company and lawyers refuse any kind of negotiation. I don'want to lose the home we were raised in.

  7. It"s blog entries like this that make TIPB worthwhile. Anyone can rehash news items. If you feel it s trash or BS, then say why. Otherwise, you appear clueless.UPDATE: This app was updated today to version 1.02 and it works correctly now when I set it to auto lock. It locks a few seconds after you make/receive a call.I am having trouble with slideshows through airplay on my apple tv. I can get just the music to play, or just the pictures, and SOMETIMES both. I don"t get it.

  8. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that it is
    best to write extra on this topic, it won't be a taboo subject but generally individuals are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
