A Sad Day For Cakes

A big story in Chicago this week is about the massive fire that destroyed the Cakegirls bakery in Roscoe Village. Cakegirls is an upscale bakeshop owned and run by sisters Mary and Brenda Maher. The bakery specializes in special order cakes, and has won the Food Network Challenge three times. The fire started in a residence above the bakery and quickly spread through the entire building, causing the roof to collapse.

Luckily they had insurance, and several area bakeries are offering to help them fill their upcoming orders. But they are giving refunds for orders due this week. Send the Maher sisters your good thoughts!
