Important Prerequisite

  • You must be a good baker with reasonable decorating skills
    • Take a look at our Cake4Kids Facebook page to see the different levels of baking and decorating skills.
    • The photos of cakes in our website gallery are mostly those from our cake contests and do not represent the average cake baked by our volunteers...in case they make you feel intimidated!!
  • You also must be able to deliver the cake to one of our agencies during office hours Monday thru Friday
    • We are currently operating in the following counties:
      • Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Fresno, San Diego, and Sacramento.
  • You must be 18 years of age to volunteer as a baker.  Youth between 16-18 years old may volunteer as part of a parent / child team.  Please provide parent / guardian details on volunteer registration form.

It's easy and very rewarding to volunteer with Cake4Kids. Just follow this simple recipe!

      1.  Complete our volunteer registration form
      2.  Attend a 1-1.5 hour in-person orientation session (mandatory)
      3.  Log into the Baker Portal and decide which cake you fancy baking for a child
        • You decide how many cakes you'd like to bake...we have no minimum requirements
      4.  Once you have chosen the cake you want to bake, you buy the ingredients and set about baking and decorating the  cake in your own home
      5.  When your cake is ready, you deliver it to the agency and email us a photo of the cake
        • When you complete the volunteer registration we will ask you for your driver's license # and auto insurance, because delivery of the cake is a requirement of volunteering for Cake4Kids
        • Cake deliveries only take place Monday - Friday and are generally office hours

      Please note: We are very serious about the quality of the cakes we bake for the children we serve. For that reason, if a child would like to volunteer, they must be at least 16. We also require a proof of age and will ask to see proof at the orientation session. If under 18 years of age, when you sign up with us, please supply your parent/guardian's name (and your first name), their email, phone number, driver's license, and auto insurance details.
