Thanks to Mercyhurst University’s Quickstarter Initiative, The Workingman’s Cake will hold its launch party 5-7 p.m. on Oct. 11 at 827 State St., where visitors can enjoy cake samples.
In the midst of busy lives, sometimes workers need cake to turn a day around. That’s why The Workingman’s Cake makes cakes for a busy lifestyle. These home-made, shipped cakes are mailed fresh to each customer’s door. Each four-by-four-inch piece of cake is wrapped individually with nine separate pockets of icing.
“That’s right, we put the icing on the inside,” Kathy Fling of Erie, Pennsylvania, creator of the business, said on her Facebook project page. “No mess or bother and icing with every bite -- perfect for the working man or woman who needs the pick-me-up that only a piece of home-made cake can provide.”
Each cake is made with traditional chocolate or vanilla flavors as well as exotic tastes, like caramel and hot cayenne pepper. Before being shipped, each piece of wrapped three times over to guarantee that it is fresh when it arrives.
“I have been baking and selling small batch cookies and cupcakes for local office parties and special events for years,” Fling said. “The experience of getting something home-made is just so special. I really wanted to try to share that with everyone.”
