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. 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

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! If you have any further questions, please
do not hesitate to contact me at: SylverlineAgomah@creighton.edu.
