Tragedy strikes fellow cake decorators

March 29, 2010

I was just checking my e-mail as I ate a quick lunch and found a posting on one of the many cake decorating sites I subscribe to about a fire at the CakeGirls Bakery in Chicago.  I was so saddened!

Sisters Mary and Brenda Maher are well-known in the cake world for their beautiful cake and prestigious wins on the Food Network Challenge series.  Now the business that they built from nothing about seven years ago is gone.  Here is a link to a news story about the fire.

Our hearts go out to Mary and Brenda.  Their greatest concern, as would be ours, if not only the loss of their bakery but also the upcoming orders they need to fulfill for their customers.  We wish we were close by to lend a hand!  Good luck, ladies!

This is one of the many gorgeous wedding cakes that the CakeGirls have created in their time. Where will they work now? (photo courtesy of
