Bake Me A Wish

Hard times bring out the best in us, making the recession a stimulus in disguise.Bill Gates started Microsoft during a recession, and Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol to stave off creditors.God often brings us to our knees before we can soar, passing us through the refiner's fire to bring us out as pure gold.These thoughts came to mind when I heard this morning of Angela Logan, who combined her skills and available resources to keep her home by marketing what she calls her "mortgage apple cake."The 55-year-old struggling actress was facing foreclosure on her Teaneck, N.J.

home, when she approached her three sons with the idea of selling her apple cake, an iced layer creation made with a secret recipe including olive oil and a combination of red delicious and gala apples.That was only three weeks ago.Today, Logan's cake has stirred such an aroma that Bake Me A Wish, Inc., the gourmet cake delivery service, has struck a deal with Logan to bake and deliver her newfound culinary gold mine.Logan's story is reminiscent of the Biblical widow in II Kings 4:1-7, whose sons faced imprisonment to pay the debt left by her husband.

She had nothing but a jar of olive oil and the faith to seek the Lord's help.The widow listened to the Prophet Elisha, who told her to borrow empty jars from her neighbors.

God miraculously multiplied her one jar of oil to fill all of the borrowed vessels, allowing her to sell enough oil to settle her debts, with ample money left for living expenses.Like the widow, Logan had to first admit her need, to herself, and then her family and friends.

Like the widow, she had to ask for help and match it with the skills and resources she already had.Logan began by contacting family, friends and church members, who donated cake supplies and became her first customers.

She sold 100 cakes in 10 days at $40 each, working well into the night in her single-oven kitchen.Then came help from the Hasbrouck Heights Hilton hotel, which let her use a corner of its kitchen for her operation.Josh Kaye, Bake Me a Wish founder and president, has secured the recipe under a confidentiality agreement and is now marketing mortgage layer cake on his website,

His staff will begin producing the cake at his Long Island commercial bakery, with Logan monitoring things to ensure the cake's homemade flavor and goodness.What treasures has God buried within you?Don't be afraid of hard times.

They can lead to unimaginable blessings.
