De L’or Cakery Seeks Support to Help Provide a “Sweet”Fellowsh
Local bakery also signs on to be a vendor at BrunchCon, the world’s biggest food and drink festival
CITY ISLAND, N.Y. (March 7, 2018) — Premier specialty bakery De L’or Cakery recently announced plans to begin a fellowship program for local at-risk youth in the New York City area through an iFundWomen crowdfunding campaign. The fun, hands-on learning program will teach participants fundamental skills in baking and cake decorating as well as introduce them to educational institutes that offer two- or four–year degrees in pastry arts.
In addition, De L’or Cakery has signed a contract to be a vendor at this year’s BrunchCon, the world’s biggest food and drink festival. This exciting opportunity will allow the companyto introduce its award–winning, flavor–packed cheesecakes, cake pops, cookies and cakes to eight major cities on the tour. This will also be a chance to help generate support for the company’s crowdfunding campaign. De L’or Cakery strives to connect the community by enhancing their palate one splendid slice of cake at a time while giving back to promote unity and prosperity. Whenever people support the company, they will provide an opportunity for a young person to learn a trade and enhance their survival skills.
De L’or Cakery’s dream-come-true fellowship program is the brainchild of owner Kayisha Thompson—who creatively refers to herself as the CEO, Cake Executive Officer. City Island-based Thompson is an experienced professional in the industry, having spent many years perfecting her craft. After competing in and winning the Count Me In Urban Rebound Program, she beganworking on creating something meaningful for teens ages 15 and older. Her program targets teens who have been placed in foster care and who have a desire to learn sugar artistry and cake decora
