    C’mon cakes! Why don’t you try being a more fun color?

  2. Christopher says:

    It makes me feel bad that this makes me happy. 

    • Ramone says:

      Why? They look delicious and it’s for a great cause. It makes me feel bad that I can’t be eating one already!

  3. OliveGreenapple says:

    Depressingly, I probably can’t eat them.

    My first thought was, “I hope these are licorice-flavored.”

  6. anon0mouse says:

    I’m sad that I’m hungry.

    I suspect that while this is clever, it’s probably not good marketing. People are more likely to buy food if it looks colorful. Maybe they should decorate their cakes to look like anti-depression meds!

    I think this is a wonderful idea.  Beautiful!  I would buy so many of these if they were available in NYC (and I believed in the charity).

  9. James Penrose says:

    I’d want to see just how much money actually got to the place intended and exactly where it went.  There’s a lot of folks out there making a healthy living off of collecting charity money little of which ends up going anyplace useful.

    All cakes are grey in the dark.

  11. The money is going to The Mental Health Foundation in the UK and like charities where hosted abroad. I’m
    hosting the Glasgow Depressed Cake Shop, the cakes are being made by
    professional and hobby bakers alike who have all been affected by mental
    health issues in one way or another. Baking is great therapy and a way for people to express themselves. The cakes will not only highlight the effects depression can have on a person – but hopefully get people talking about it.
