Laura's Cakes!

I first Met Laura a few years ago when she began lifeguarding at our local ocean beach in Amagansett. At 18 she was a high school senior, a member of the high school swim team, a volunteer EMT first responder for the Amagansett volunteer ambulance, a teacher of CPR/AED/First Aid courses... Oh, and headed to Cornell to major in Animal Science at Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Did I mention she was 18?? ....You can imagine my surprise when on top of all of this, she shows up at the beach one day with a gorgeous cake for her friend, and fellow lifeguard, Kelly. It turns out she also bakes. And not just bake... she BAKES. And decorates like a pro! Later that day, I called Cassandra to tell her about Laura and her cake and she informed me that she used to babysit for Laura when she was just a baby! Small world!

We are donating some of our favorite tools for her kitchen collection: Stainless Steel Icing SpatulasPastry Decorating Set - 3 pcAssorted Pastry Tube Set - 6 pcPlastic Coated 12" Decorating BagWhite Baking CupsParchment Baking SheetsNielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla ExtractPremium Vanilla Beans. Maybe she will surprise us with another cake or cupcakes or pie or cake or cupcake or cake or cake...




Laura will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro! She has joined Operation Fistula and will climb with Mountains for Moms to raise awareness about Obstetric Fistula, a terrible injury that is effecting women in Africa.
