We are inviting you to contribute to an upcoming Depressed Cake Shop event,
and to join the worldwide phenomenon that has raised over $100,000 for mental
health charities around the world! One in four people will live with mental health issues at some
point in their lives. The Depressed Cake Shop sells beautiful baked goods, donated by
local bakers in order to raise awareness of mental health issues and provide a platform
for discussion, community, education and awareness.
When a baker becomes involved with the Depressed Cake Shop, there is
only one requirement; that the baked goods you donate have an element of gray to
signify the gray cloud that can descend over a beautiful world when someone is struggling with mental health issues.
Dr. Andrea Thinnes of Creighton University will be hosting
the Depressed Cake Shop from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday,
April 27, 2019 at Brewability on 12445 E. 39th Avenue #314,
Denver, CO. 80239.
This particular pop-up will be raising funds to support National Alliance on Mental Illness
for our local state (NAMI Colorado).
We welcome any type of donated baked good, and our shops have become a wonderful and curated
collection ranging from professional bakers with store fronts, to licensed home bakers, to people
who bake as a hobby and just want to be involved. We ask that you avoid using nuts as so many
people are seriously allergic to them. Other than that, you can make a cake to be sold in its entirety
or by the slice, cake pops, cupcakes, or cookies. Some people have made custom marshmallows,
‘misfortune cookies,’ pies, chocolate covered Oreos. The only limit is your imagination!
If you’d like some inspiration, please visit our website or Facebook page, www.depressedcakeshop.com ;
fb: @depressedcakeshop. Also, attached is a one-sheet of press coverage and some
baked goods from past pop-ups. It is also very helpful if you provide us with a list of ingredients,
the type and flavor of your item and also, a fun name if you can think of one. We welcome vegan and
gluten free items as well! Our customers often request them, and it is great to be able to offer that option.
We would love for you to partake in our event!
