Let them eat mortgage cake

It seems a US woman has cooked up a novel solution to avoid defaulting on her mortgage payments.

Angela Logan, a divorced mother of three, resorted to a bake sale to save her home from foreclosure, with the goal of selling 100 homemade “mortgage apple cakes” at AU$48 each.

US news agency The Record reports that within a week she had over 500 orders, as well as the icing on the cake – an invitation from a nearby hotel to use their kitchen over the weekend before the first of three $3075.10 payments was due.

Ms Logan is reportedly confident the first payment won’t be a problem and has said she won’t stop baking until people stop ordering.
