The role of Angela Logan, a woman who was faced with foreclosure and went on a mission to bake 100 cakes in 10 days to prevent it from happening, is being played by Kimberly Elise in the UP Original Movie “Apple Mortgage Cake,” which is currently in the middle of production in Toronto, Canada.

When Logan is five (Millie Davis), her grandmother Nellie (Darlene Cooke) teaches her how to make apple cake and tells her, “Cake makes people happy.  One bowl, one mixer, and the right company, and you’re set free for life.”

Fast-forward 35 years.  Angela (Elise) is a single, working mother with three teenage boys, Marcus (A.J. Saudin), William, (Stephan James) and Nicolas (Lamar Johnson).  Despite juggling several jobs, Angela still has time to help with employment counseling at the local Mission.  And though she is thrilled to bake inside of the home she grew up baking in, the home is falling apart with sections deemed uninhabitable by inspectors after storm and flood damage, as reported by eurweb.com.

Then suddenly the car breaks down.  This happens when the boys are in need of shoes, books and food.  As if all of this was not enough to cause a nervous breakdown, Angela receives the bad news that her lender called in the mortgage loan putting her into foreclosure.   Should Angela fail to come up with $4000 in 10 days, she will lose her home.

Based on a true story, the movie illustrates the struggle of a woman determined to bake 100 apple cakes and sell them at $40 each in order to save her home.  The admirable attempt completely changes Angela and her family forever.

Word of Angela’s “bake sale” spreads rapidly.  Orders begin to come in from all over the world.   The community and local businesses soon offer their support to assist Angela in shipping the initial stacks of orders.

“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,” said Barbara Fisher of original programming at 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,” she continued.
