Apple Mortgage Cake is the inspirational, real-life story about how one good idea—and a ton of apples, sugar, flour and butter—can change a family's future for the better," says Barbara Fisher, senior vice president, original programming, Uplifting Entertainment (UP). "We are thrilled to introduce viewers to Angela Logan and her family, who went from foreclosure to overnight success and her own prosperous apple cake bakery in Teaneck, New Jersey."
This is the true story of a woman who decides to bake 100 apple cakes and sell them at $40 each in order to save her home—and how this idea completely changes her and her family. As word of her "bake sale" ripples out through neighbors, friends, her church and even old flames, such as Melvin (Kevin Hanchard), the story soon spreads to the news, locally, nationally and internationally. Orders fly in from all over the world. Angela is taken off guard by the overwhelming support. But soon, this fiercely independent woman learns to depend on the kindness and love of others that comes her way, particularly when the community and local businesses rally around Angela to help her finish and ship the initial stacks of orders.
