YOU GUYS. I MADE A SHARKNADO CAKE. Regrettably, I did not cut it with a chainsaw.

The Depressed Cake Shop is coming to Nashville! 

Unlike other bake sales, the Depressed Cake Shop is a one-day pop-up shop that sells only gray treats as a way to bring attention to and fight stigmas against mental health issues. 

The first Depressed Cake Shop was hosted in the UK by Emma Cakehead last August, and over 30 bake sales have happened across the world since, raising over $25,000.

Nashville’s Depressed Cake Shop is Saturday, March 15, at the Stone Fox (they serve great brunch, too!), and admission is totally FREE. All proceeds will benefit Centerstone in Nashville. You can learn more about their work at

Happy New Year, friends! While I will definitely keep updating Bake It in a Cake with more cupcake recipes this year (hooray!), I have also started my own personal blog with more non-cake recipes and words about music and life and whatever else my brain’s obsessing over at the moment (hooray again, I think!).
