Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss article from

Thought this was a really interesting article in USA Today about the Show, Cake Boss on TLC. Buddy Valestro is the "boss" and they air on Monday evenings at 10pm on TLC (in my area). On the side (to the left) is a smaller article about Charm City Cakes.

Amazing what they are able to charge for these works of art! You'll notice the minimum charge for Duff's cakes is $1000.00 and the minimum for a cake from Carlo's Bakery is $11 - $15 PER SERVING!!!! WOWZA! Imagine... you want a cake to feed 25 people for a Birthday Party. You order it from Carlo's Bakery in NJ. You are charged at least $275.00!!! If you get a cake that looks like the cakes I do with the detail, you are looking at $375.00. Wrap your head around that one for a minute!! HOLY COW!

So... when the bakery tells you a cake to feed 50 people is going to run you in the vicinity of two hundred with the detail you want, you can do a happy dance at the huge bargain you are getting! And make sure you laugh at those people that ordered a similar cake and paid 5-6 times as much! And you had no idea you were a bargain shopper! ha ha

Do you know if you died today that you would go to Heaven?
What do you base that on? Jesus Christ is the only door/way that you can go to Heaven. By believing that God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross to take away our sins and save us from our sins because we are sinners, we can have assurance that we are going to Heaven. You can NOT go to Heaven by works! It is only by faith through God‘s grace that we can go to Heaven. To know for sure contact Emmanuel Baptist Church If you have any questions you can call 419-473-3280 or go to the website
Or you can contact Monroe Missionary Baptist Church by going to the website or call 734-241-6860

Religion is about getting to heaven and not paying the consequences for your actions. Relationship with Jesus is about the God of the Universe without fault taking the consequences for your actions because He created you and loves you and just like a Father/ Mother would die a horrible death to save the life of their child. God loves you and if you take time to notice, you'll see that He has been chasing after you, looking for you relentlessly. There is already someone in your life you can trust and confide in, you dont need a stranger. God loves you even when you ignore and deny Him. Talk to Him, He is listening.
