Cake decorators Trent and Drew Lourie display their latest creations.

On May 8 and 9, Mother Myrick’s Confectionary in Mancheste was turned over to a group of kids, dads and a grandparent or two, to decorate and personalize a special cake to present to mom on Mother’s Day.

Mother Myrick’s provided the freshly baked cakes, decorating supplies and expert guidance. In return, the decorators were asked to donate $10 per cake, or whatever amount they could afford, to Susan G. Komen Vermont-New Hampshire’s Race for the Cure.

When all was said and done, there were quite a few proud sons, daughters and dads, with beaming and grateful moms. The event raised $479 to help fund breast cancer education, screening and treatment throughout the region.

Terry Farkas, Komen VT-NH executive director, said, “Our thanks go out to Jacki and Ron Baker for sponsoring this super-fun, annual cake-a-thon. We, as an organization, and all of the local folks we’re able to help thanks to events like this, are truly fortunate to live and work in such a caring and generous place.”

Visit Mother Myrick’s Facebook page for behind-the-scenes peeks of the kids and their accomplices in action; visit komenvtnh.org for more information on Komen Vermont-New Hampshire and the Komen Vermont Race for the Cure, at Riley Rink at Hunter Park, on July 18.
