Apple Mortgage Cake

Here's a project we first told you about back in December. The UP Original Movie Apple Mortgage Cake, stars Kimberly Elise in the the inspiring true story of Angela Logan (played by Elise) who, when faced with foreclosure, set a goal to bake 100 cakes in 10 days to save her home. 

Cake, directed by Michael Scott from a script penned by Jamie Pachino (Franklyn & Bash) and produced by Entertainment One (eOne), will make its world television premiere on UP on April 20, 2014 (Easter Sunday) at 7p.m. et.

The ensemble cast also includes Kevin HanchardLamar JohnsonStephan JamesA.J. SaudinGabrielle MillerJoanne BolandPaul De La RosaCatherine Disher, Peter WilliamsSiobhan MurphyBarry Flatman,Darlene Cooke and Millie Davis

The real-life Angela Logan makes a cameo appearance.

More from the press release:

Angela Logan (Kimberly Elise) is a single, working mom with three teenage boys, Marcus (A.J. Saudin), William (Stephan James) and Nicolas (Lamar Johnson) in Teaneck, NJ. She juggles various jobs and helps with employment counseling at the local Mission. While thrilled to be in the family home where she learned to bake, the house is falling apart, with sections deemed uninhabitable by inspectors after storm and flood damage. She has always made due until now -- when her lender calls in the mortgage loan and puts her into foreclosure. Angela has 10 days to come up with $4000 or she loses her home.

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. 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.

"Apple Mortgage Cake is the inspirational, real-life story about how one good idea -- plus several bushels of apples, sugar, flour and butter -- helps a family rise from financial disaster in the worst of the recent recession," said Leslie Glenn Chesloff, executive vice president of programming, UP. "Angela Logan went from home foreclosure to 'overnight' national success as her homemade apple cakes helped her build a prosperous apple cake business. We think this is a perfect movie for our viewers in April, especially on Easter Sunday."

Logan is now the owner of Mortgage Apple Cakes, LLC, based in Teaneck."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, svp, original programming, 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."
