Sweet Blessings hosts bake-a-thon


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – For 24 hours, volunteers in Lexington are custom decorating over 100 cakes from scratch for children in need in Central Kentucky.

Every cake created will go to a kid living in poverty, with a life threatening illness, or with special needs.

Sweet Blessings holds a Bake-A-Thon every year on their anniversary at Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church.

Each year the founder says they are challenged with creating something new.

“These are children who need attention and they need something that makes them know that somebody loves them and is thinking about them,” said Connie Malone, Volunteer.

There were over 100 volunteers at the Bake-A-Thon.

A new group of volunteers will deliver the cakes on Wednesday.
