LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-A birthday party isn't complete without cake especially as a kid, but some families aren't always capable of providing the sweet treat for their little one. One lafayette couple is doing their part to make sure no kids in our area go without cake on their special day.
"I enjoy it and I like spreading the joy to other children as well," said Caressa Oorloff-Golding who started making cakes for kids in need.
Caressa noticed the need through her work in the community. So, she announced on a Facebook post that she would make a cake for anyone who couldn't purchase one for their child or loved one's birthday.
"Growing up we didn't have a lot but my mom always made sure that we had a cake on our birthday," said Caressa. "So, I think it's sweet and nice for a parent to be able to provide their child with a cake and we are doing everything we can to make sure we can do that."
If someone is unable to provide a birthday cake for their child, all they have to do is reach out to Caressa and she will make sure their child has a special treat on their special day.
"We have had stranger drop of cake mixes and butter and ingredients and flour and all kinds of random acts of kindness that can help us facilitate this," added Caressa.
Even without the donations, Caressa and her husband say they will continue to fulfill any requests that they have.
"We've only been doing this a short time and there has really been a lot of interest it's been really surprising and heartwarming," said Todd Golding Caressa's Husband.
While life may not be a piece of cake for everyone. The Goldings hope they can create layers of service with their acts of kindness.
"I think if everyone does something to help everyone then everyone is helped," said Caressa.
"I hope that people tell their friends about this and maybe spread the volunteer spirit around I know it's been inspiring for me," said Todd.
If you are in need of a cake for your child or loved one you can contact Caressa on her Facebook page Golding's Kitchen Facebook.
