NACOGDOCHES — During the past three years, one woman has baked more than 800 cakes as gifts of love.

Founded in 2010 by Debbie Coleman — better known as “the Cake Lady” — the Cake Angels Foundation has impacted the lives of children of East Texas.

On Wednesday, May 8, Coleman paid a visit to a handful of students celebrating birthdays this month at the Martin School of Choice and the Nacogdoches County Alternate Education Center located at 302 Hughes Street.

Smiles lit up the room as the students received their birthday cakes.

According to Coleman, the Cake Angels Foundation provides a birthday cake for children whose parents or guardians are unable to due to lack of sufficient income or other hardship conditions, at no charge.

“We believe that every child deserves a birthday cake made especially for them,” Coleman said.

Martin School of Choice principal Gerrie Lockett also is a strong believer in the work of the Cake Angels Foundation.

“For some student, this was the first birthday cake they’ve ever received,” Lockett said.

She added that she has seen children in tears simply because someone cared enough about them to celebrate their special day with a cake made just for them.

Last year, Coleman baked and decorated more than 440 cakes for East Texas children.

The Cake Angels Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, operating solely on the donations of the general public.

If you know of a child in the East Texas area that would like to have a special cake made for their birthday, contact the Cake Angels Foundation at 936-637-3051 or via email at
