Bake Sale Helps Woman Make Mortgage Payment


TEANECK, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey woman's bake sale has helped her forestall foreclosure.

Angela Logan raised the $2,559.54 due Sunday under a federal program to help homeowners in financial trouble.

The divorced mother of three sons in Teaneck wanted to sell 100 "mortgage apple cakes" at $40 each. But as of Tuesday, she had more than 500 orders, including one from Hong Kong.

Teaneck's health officer notified Logan that it was against state law to use her house as a commercial kitchen.

But the Hilton Hasbrouck Heights has allowed Logan to cook in the hotel's kitchen, where she can produce up to 10 cakes at a time.

Logan tells The Record of Bergen County she won't stop baking until people stop ordering.
