This upoming Feb. 2018 will be 25 years since the death of my sister at the young age of 24. For most of her life she battled with anxiety, low self esteem and a host of other issues that manifested itself in drug abuse, alcohol abuse and what ultimately took her life; an eating disorder.
Being in the cake community I have been blessed to meet so many people and some of those wonderful people got me interested in Depressed Cake Shop.
“Where there is cake, there is hope…and there is always cake.”
As a sibling and 25 years ago, there were not many outlets I could turn to for help much less information. Yes many things have changed in 25 years but I still feel so much more can be done. The term mental illness needs to lose its stigma and so much more needs to be offered to help these individuals.
I am honored to be hosting the FIRST EVER New York, Tri State Depressed cake Shop Pop Up Event! The event, coinciding with with World Mental Health Day on October 10th, 2017 will also have sister pop-ups around the US and the world!

What’s a pop up event?
Well I like to think of it like a PTA bake sale. Lots of delicious baked goodies all done in the grey color scheme to signify mental health!
Brownies, cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, anything and everything! And the best part is 100 % of the proceeds go to charity!
Here’s a great post from SweatPantsandCoffee.com that details the organization and event!
We’ll be holding the event at Cohens Childrens Medical center on October 7th, from 11:00 – 5:00 pm.
So come on down, help support an amazing cause and we look forward to seeing you there!!
