LISTEN: WCBS 880′s Sean Adams reports
When WCBS 880′s Sean Adams first met Angela Logan, she was covered in flour and sleep-deprived. In the summer of 2009, she was about to lose her Teaneck home, so she baked 100 cakes in 10 days.
“I saved my house thanks to many many wonderful people, who bought the Mortgage Apple Cakes,” says Logan.
Adams asked, “What’s happened since then?”
Logan said, “Since then, I’m with Bake Me A Wish. It’s a gift cake company that sells my cakes overnight, online, you know. They sell them overnight like flowers.”

That’s not all. She’s at several farmers’ markets too.
“It has indeed become a full-time thing. I have brand managers, who are in the process of branding me. We’ve been donating time to Greenpath, where five percent of the sales of my cakes go to Greenpath to help others who are having trouble with their mortgage,” says Logan.
Orders for Logan’s Mortgage Apple Cakes came from around the globe.
People in trouble ask for her advice.
Logan says, “The first thing you have to do is get over the embarrassment and say ‘I have a problem.’”
The experience has been life-altering.
“I’m very very content. I’m doing something that I feel is making a difference, not only in my life, but in the life of a lot of other people and I just feel honored for the privilege to be able to have that happen,” says Logan
There’s even talk about her cakes in Hollywood.
Logan says, “It looks very very positive that a movie will be done about Mortgage Apple Cakes.”
