Fresh from the Sugar* Oven
I didn’t know Noelle Paquette, but had classmates from the University of Ottawa who knew her well. Via Facebook, I stumbled upon this news piece and was both heartbroken to learn of Noelle’s story and inspired by her family and friends, who are able to do something so truly spectacular during such a difficult time with heavy hearts. Just as lucky as her family and friends were to know Noelle, she was equally as lucky to have all of you - ensuring that her spirit and legacy continue to shine on, giving Noelle the opportunity to continue to support a cause she whole heartedly believed in. A friend and fellow entrepreneur once said that being an entrepreneur means being socially responsible. I couldn’t agree more. What good is your talent if you can’t use it to help others and make others happy? That is, after all, the reason why I run Sugar Baking in the first place. While I have contributed to many a fundraiser and events in the past for various causes, this is one cause I will continue to support for as long as I run my business.
One of my most popular custom orders is a set of school/teacher themed cupcakes. They are often gifted to teachers at the end of the school year and are $30 for a set of 6 cupcakes. Starting today, 100% of every order in the future for these cupcakes will be donated to Noelle’s Gift.
I am also offering a set of 6 sugar cookies in the shape of a shiny red apple for $15, all of which will also go to Noelle’s Gift.
Please share with anyone who may be looking for a unique gift for their children’s teachers this year. Share with anyone who likes cupcakes or cookies, or really, with anyone at all. Because every little bit counts. With your help, you are providing at the very least a nutritious meal or classroom supplies to the students in Lambton who need it but more importantly, are ensuring that Noelle’s memory continues to shine brightly in the lives of those she left behind.
