Bake your way to making a difference!

At Cake4Kids we bake and deliver homemade birthday cakes, cupcakes, cookies, bars, and brownies to foster children and at-risk youth -- and all of the baking and decorating is done by you, the volunteers! We aim to raise their self-esteem with this seemingly simple gift on their special day. Cake4Kids supports as many at-risk youth as possible in the communities we serve, including youth experiencing homelessness, victims of human trafficking and domestic violence, those in foster care, and more. We are proud to bring our service to the Greater Madison area and bring hope to the at-risk youth in the community!

If you like to bake and decorate cakes, you will love to volunteer with Cake4Kids.

  • Bake as often as you'd like... it's up to you how often you volunteer
  • You choose which requests to sign up for (based on theme, dessert type, delivery time and location)
  • Bake and decorate in your own kitchen
  • Deliver the finished sweets to the local social services agency that placed the request

It's fun and rewarding and truly the "sweetest" volunteer opportunity you can participate in.

**Volunteer orientations are currently being held online**

Mission Statement

What We Do: We deliver smiles to underserved youth, one birthday cake at a time. Our volunteer bakers, like you, bake and deliver homemade custom birthday cakes, cupcakes and cookies for those who are in foster care, victims of violence or human trafficking, experiencing homeless, LGBTQ+, refugees, or living at or below the poverty line. The seemingly simple gift of a homemade, custom sweet gives the youth joy and helps to build their self-esteem. It's amazing the impact a single cake can make!


Cake4Kids is a National 501c3, started in 2010, providing free custom birthday cakes, cupcakes or cookies to underserved youth. What began as the grassroots effort of our founder and some friends delivering cakes to a handful of cakes to foster children in the San Francisco Bay Area, has grown into a nationwide organization that serves at-risk youth in 17 states (and counting!). To date, Cake4Kids has provided over 50,000 cakes.

There are still thousands and thousands more youth who need our support, so let's make an impact, together!
