NJ Woman Bakes Her Way Out of Foreclosure

NJ Woman Bakes Her Way Out of Foreclosure

Mortgage apple cakes are the tastiest thing on the menu for one New Jersey homeowner. Angela Logan must make a $2,559.54 payment on July 26 if she wants to keep her home of 20 years out of foreclosure, and because of a successful bake sale it looks like she'll meet the deadline.

Logan cooked up the idea to sell apple cakes for $40 each in order to pay her mortgage, and as of Tuesday, she had more than 500 orders, including one from Hong Kong. A health official warned her that it's illegal to use her house as a commercial kitchen, but Hilton Hasbrouck Heights is allowing Logan to use its kitchen, where she's able to bake 10 cakes at a time.

The actress/stand-up comedian blames her financial troubles on a home improvement project that went wrong, and the fact that several of her paychecks were frozen when one of her talent agencies shut down. Logan is now studying to become a nurse to have a more secure career, and says she "won't stop baking until people stop ordering."

That must be one tasty cake! Good for her for using her head to get out of a sticky situation. If I had the money I would be happy to buy one just to see how yummy it is and if it's worth it.
