Gail Yisrael, owner of A Mother's Touch Cakes, extends her motherly affection to the whole world. She bakes with natural and local ingredients, creating 42 flavors of cakes for special occasions. She caters to every special dietary need, as well, whipping up sugar-free, gluten-free, and vegan confections alongside her more traditional treats and pairing them with custom-blended organic coffees and teas. She even crafts cupcakes—in flavors such as root beer float—that are designed to transport customers to their childhoods more effectively than a DeLorean outfitted with a rocket propeller.
And like any motherly person, Gail cares about others. She uses 10% of every purchase to fund her very own charity, Project Mother's Touch. Through this charity, she brings food to hungry people in the local community, including freshly baked muffins, juice, and whole foods such as fruit and vegetables.
