Kendall’s Cakes and DC Central Kitchen

February 26, 2010

You all know how much I adore  Kendall Barrett of Kendall’s Cakes. She is one of those people that the more you get to know her, the more wonderful you realize she is…and, not to mention, Kendall is always filling me up with delicious treats when I see her!  I just am delighted by this story…I hope it leads you into a happy weekend…

A few weeks ago, during the first snow storm, Kendall had a wedding cancelled at the Mandarin Oriental.  As some of you may know, in most venue contracts, there is an “Act of God clause” that protects both the property and couple against events outside of human control, like that crazy weather.  So, luckily, the couple was able to reschedule their wedding without any penalty but, regardless, it was a sad situation for everyone involved.

So, what about the cake for 220 guests that was finished and ready to deliver?  Kendall and her son Zack donated and delivered the beautiful wedding cake to DC Central Kitchen where the staff and volunteers there were able to slice it and feed the cold homeless of our city delicious wedding cake (chocolate raspberry and white chocolate raspberry) in the storm.  It was the perfect ending to an otherwise sad weekend wedding.

Kendall teaches pastry classes at DCCK and often brings leftovers to the nonprofit.  It is such a pleasure to work with so many fabulous vendors in the DC wedding industry, especially those like Kendall who not only make weddings such happy occasions but our community a better place!
