Fate Cakes and Athleta team up in May, 2015

Athleta Cupcakes

athleta_cupcakes It may have been almost 3 months since our last post, and boy do we have a ton of updates for you! In April of this year, Athleta ( a sub company to The Gap), contacted our bakery to become an affiliate with their store for some upcoming fundraisers.

We were happy to be a part of 4 different events during the month of May, some of which involved Easters Seals for a Shop For A Cause event, where every shopper who mentions the fundraiser receives 10% off their order and a percentage of then every sale goes to Easter Seals.

There was also a larger planned event which involved The American Lung Association, and in a similar fashion, all transactions made under the Shop For A Cause would be given a discount at the register and The Lung Force would receive a portion of the sales for their organization.

At Fate Cakes, we take pride in our community and love giving back to the Columbus, Ohio and surrounding areas. We make dozens of donations to small and large fundraisers – ranging from a couple cupcakes/desserts, to large events held within the Downtown Columbus area. We are happy to be a part of this community and there is nothing more important than making sure our community knows how much we love and care about them.

If you’re interested in learning more about our fundraisers, and continued affiliation with Athleta, check out our Fate Cakes Facebook Page and Fate Cakes Twitter Account accounts where you can follow our daily and weekly events. If you’re part of an organization looking for some sweet treats at your next event, feel free to contact our Event Coordinator, Marie O’Stroske at 614.219.9429 to set up a time to discuss your organization and the event.

New Treat To Try In Columbus

Read Columbus Underground's Treat To Try Article about Fate Cakes

News is starting to spread that our delicious little cupcakes are featured as a bakery item at Lucky’s Market in Clintonville. Starting in February 2014, our treats have been a daily treat for all shoppers in this local and organic lil’ store, and some editors at Columbus Underground just had to try our sweets for themselves.

As you guessed it, they were a huge hit amongst the writers, and we were pleasantly surprised to read an impromptu visit to the Ohio grown marketplace inspired an article written about yours truly. At Fate Cakes, we do everything for the community and when it reaches back out to us with open arms and a friendly response, we can’t help but to be filled with a warmth in our hearts.

We think Miriam Bowers puts the icing on the cake when she describes our Buckeye Cupcakes as “a down-home peanut butter cookie flavor”, and we couldn’t agree more that this particular cupcake is for the peanut butter lover – but really, can you ever have too much peanut butter. And honestly with a description like, “it’s soft and smooth and equal parts sweet and peanut buttery,” you’d have to be crazy to not get some of your own to try.

Thank you Columbus Underground for the amazing review and support on our first marketplace adventure. If you would like to read the full article about the Fate Cakes’ experience, CLICK HERE to be redirected to the Columbus Underground website.

Local women hit sweet spot riding the cupcake craze

TIFFANY L. PARKS | Daily Reporter Published: 12/20/2013

Marie O’Stroske was working as a full time senior project manager in the Short North and doing freelance web design and web development when she decided to go full throttle with her bakery, Fate Cakes, in March.

Cupcakes are the star at Fate Cakes, a direct delivery company based out of Columbus, which also specializes in cake pops, cakes and will soon unveil a cookie line.

“Our cupcake menu has definitely put us on the map,” O’Stroske said, highlighting her red velvet, chocolate lovers and buckeye-inspired flavors as fan favorites. “We offer a variety of items including specialty cakes but people can’t get enough of the simplicity of cupcakes.”

O’Stroske, who offers delivery services six days a week to the greater Columbus area, said cupcakes make up the lion’s share — 75 percent — of products coming from her bakery.

“I think popular shows like TLC’s Cupcake Wars and other cupcake shows have really helped our industry grow into a fun and creative art which people are excited to embrace,” she said. “You can customize cupcakes and have the option of many flavors per dozen. You don’t have that much flexibility with cakes. Plus, cupcakes are cute.”

….

O’Stroske also expressed optimism about consumer demand for cupcakes.

“I can’t tell the future, that’d be an amazing superpower though, therefore, I can’t speak about if we’re living in a cupcake fad. What I can predict is Columbus will always need a specialty dessert shop and cupcakes will always be tasty,” she said.

“No matter the outcome of the supposed cupcake craze, I am willing to bet on those superpowers that Fate Cakes will continue to deliver our gourmet desserts all around Columbus. We’re not going anywhere.”

OSU Cake Giveaway – Michigan Week

Ohio State vs Michigan Cake Giveaway

Our bakery specializes in custom cake designs and other personalized desserts. When we were contacted for helping ABC 6 / FOX 28 WTTE to surprise a lucky viewer we were happy to come up with a fun OSU vs Michigan cake. Their representative found out Buckeye Block O cake online and on Facebook and thought it would be a fun dessert to feature on their Good Day Columbus Weekend show.

We had so much fun on the set of GDC with Maria Durant and Adam Slinger. It can be a little crazy behind the scenes and we were lucky enough to see the entire Beat Michigan show. Their team works so hard and it’s amazing how much on the spot changes we couldn’t imagine how crazy the their every day schedules are during the week.

The phones were ringing off the hook for our cake and Maria even brought one of our miniature cakes to a tailgate she attended before the Noon game. The two anchors enjoyed the taste of our Buckeye cupcakes while on air and teased the audience with our cake throughout the entire show from 8AM until 9:45AM when the cake was the final giveaway of the day.

We’re making custom cakes every day in the bakery and would love to surprise your guests at your next party or special event. Give us a call (614) 219.9429 to talk to one of our cake designers today. To view our cake menu Click Here or Check Out Our Cake Pricing Here.
