Getting Ready for Taste of Home

Since our inception, KB Kakes has been honored and privileged to be able to give back to the community. We have participated in a number of events including the Let's Eat Cake Charity Contest to Benefit Shand's Hospital for Children's Cancer, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and Urban Meyer's Scramble for Kids--just to name a few!

This Sunday, we are reaching out to the community by participating in the 3rd Annual Taste of Home Charity Fundraiser, presented by Home Magazine. This is our second year in a row helping out this great cause. Last year's cakes and KB Kake Truffles were so much fun to make!

 KB Kakes is busy in the kitchen whipping up some more fabulous treats for this year. Like last year, the proceeds on Sunday will go to Children’s Home Society of Florida, Child Advocacy Center and Tyler’s Hope for a Dystonia Cure. KB Kakes would like to extend a special thanks to the Taste of Home sponsors, Cox Communications, Liquid Creative Studio, and Quality Design Works, our neighbor at our new location in Alachua, 13570 NW 101 Dr, Ste 400. We are conveniently located just off Highway 441. Check us out in person, at our website or Facebook page, or give us a call at (386) 518-6878.

Tickets to Taste of Home are still available here, so make sure you reserve your spot today!

See you there!

One of the best things about KB is her commitment to doing work for various charities. Above, you can see Kathy and the amazing sculpted cake she created for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Today, we are working on another great cause. We are creating specialty Starry Night Kake Truffles for the sponsors of this events, as well as a yummy red velvet cake and a chocolate cake with our amazing Godiva icing for the Climb for Cancer Foundation's Starry Night Gala!

Two celebrities, Gosia and Ali, will attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, in an effort to raise awareness of the difficulties facing those struggling with cancer. You can see them prepping for their trek below:
