The Cake Guru Cares

As small business owners we are passionate about everything we do! Supporting the community is our passion and we donate thousands of dollars worth of in-kind donations every month. Unfortunately we can not accommodate every request but we do our best to do all that we can. If you would like to Apply for an in-kind donation please stop at either shop an absolute minimum of a month before your event and fill out a donation request form. The forms must be dropped off in person, we do not accept them via e-mail. We donate literally hundreds of cupcakes, gift certificates and other desserts every month. We love to give back to communities that show so much love to us!

The Ladybug Liberty Cupcake libery2ladybug

On June 30, 2004 our lives changed forever as we became parents to an amazing child born an ocean away. At this moment we became parents and at that moment our passion for helping every child find the love of a family became a major focus of our lives.

The Ladybug Liberty- This strawberry swirl cupcake is filled with strawberry iced in pink buttercream with a sweet handmade sugar ladybug and glitter on top.

As part of our Cake Guru Cares initiative we are donating all profits from purchases of this cupcake to Holt international. Holt is the organization we worked with in the process of adopting our oldest daughter Liberty from China. Holt is passionately working to address the plight of orphans both in the US and throughout the world. We are also matching all donations placed in the donation pails as part of our initiative.

The Cake Guru Cares for Kids

Added in 2018 is our newest initiative. Cake Guru cares for kids, this program is something Tamara holds very close to her heart. This program provides every Foster Child in Winnebago County with a cake, a dozen cupcakes, or cookie cake for their birthday from Tamara’s. Our hope is that every child knows love and knows that they are important, although it is just a small gesture our hope is that these children are reminded with this gesture that their lives matter and that they are valuable.

We truly believe that any little bit makes a difference and that we need to do our part as business owners to share our gifts & talents.

Every Child Deserves the Love of a Family
