Jackie and I really appreciate the desire for people to donate.
Unfortunately we are not set up to take donations. As Cake Central has grown, we have had to turn it into a Company and therefore it would not be appropriate to accept straight donations.
The very best way you can ensure the future of Cake Central is to do your shopping for cake supplies here. The Store is what allows us to pay the server costs and keep this community free. Also the more successful the store does, the more new and interesting products we can add to the selection.
We have just expanded the store's offerings this month, and by the end of the month it will all be in-stock. We strive to give excellent pricing and top notch customer service, and I don't think you will often get a better shipping price on the net than what we charge.
Cake Central will never ever charge a membership fee, that would be completely against our purpose when Jackie set out to create this place.
Thanks again everyone for how much you care about CC, it makes all the work so worthwhile for Jackie and I when we see how much you all care about each other, and about this community
