Caring Cakes fundraiser helps build playground

A bakery in Danvers, Mass. is raising money for a playground being built in the memory of a 5-year-old girl by selling dainty cupcakes with princess themes. This is a really sweet idea for a fundraiser, especially for a playground being built to honor such a special child.

The table is set for tea and the guests, a friendly stuffed white bear and a lovely little doll, seem ready to take a sip out of a dainty cup and nibble on one of the pastel frosted cupcakes decorated with an adorable princess ring or a beautiful butterfly.

They’re just waiting for that special little girl to start the party.

Though her tricycle stands ready to whisk its owner to this magical place in the window of Cakes for Occasions, little Shiyanne Thornell will never see this tribute to her memory. She will never know that she is the impetus for a fundraiser to help recreate her favorite spot at Endicott Park, the children’s playground her mom and dad hope to see Shiyanne’s name somehow permanently connected to.
