Local resident bakes cakes for free during pandemic

CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A foster parent herself, Cassie Malone has always baked cakes for foster children. As the pandemic made its way into the Casper community, she was not baking as many cakes for foster children and spoke to her husband about offering free cakes to the community.

One of almost 100 free cakes Cassie Malone has baked since April.

Malone originally planned on making 10 cakes a month.

"This week I'll actually be making my 100th free quarantine cake," said Sugar Mama Cakery Owner, Cassie Malone.

At first, Malone only had enough supplies to make 10 cakes. That was until the orders started coming in.

"People just started donating all kinds of supplies and money when they come pick up the cakes. We just kept putting that to keeping the supplies up, to everything that I need to do this and it's been awesome," said Malone.

Malone admits these are no traditional cakes she's making and it's been a challenge. But spreading cheer and joy makes it all worth it.

"It's been pretty amazing. Not only have I gotten people donating to this cause, but I've had some families send me flowers, tons of thank you notes, pictures with their kids with their cakes," said Malone.

But it's not just Malone making the cakes, it's become a family project, which she said has brought her family closer during the pandemic.

Malone will continue making the cakes through June but orders will require a donation of some kind.
