Think pink: pair of Langford cakeries bake for cancer cause

A pair of Goldstream Avenue bakeries are going pink for a month-long dessert craze

Joy Funk of Lighthouse Cake Company shows off the Lighthouse Razipan that will raise some tasty funds for Run for a Cure.

A pair of Langford cakeries are going pink for a month-long dessert craze.

Until Oct. 16, Langford bakeries Lighthouse Cake Company and Ooh La La Cupcakes will be Tickled Pink, the dessert campaign to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.

For each Lighthouse Razipan sold, $5 will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to support breast cancer research, education and awareness programs.

“Being cake artists that type of thing fits with what we do,” said Joy Funk, who owns Lighthouse Cake Company alongside her husband. “We always like to do things in the community, help out where we can.”

At Ooh La La the Pink Lemonade Cupcake will raise funds for the cause.

“This is definitely a cause we are happy to support,” said Sheryl Andrews, owner of Ooh La La.  “We are a business of all women employees and we want to contribute any way we can to rid a disease that has impacted so many women.”

It’s the fourth year of the tasty Tickled Pink addition to Run for a Cure.

 

Both businesses are located in the 700 block of Goldstream Avenue.
