When bakery owner Bill Hanisch heard traditional high school graduation ceremonies would be cancelled this year, he decided to sweeten the day for disappointed teens. He made a free, personalized, cake for each of the 220 seniors graduating from his alma mater, Red Wing High School in Red Wing, Minnesota. It's about an hour southeast of Minneapolis.
As soon as the owner of Hanisch Bakery and Coffee Shop posted his plan on Facebook, business owners and school administrators and parents in surrounding towns like Cannon Falls, MN and Plum City, WI, asked if they could send him donations to make cakes for graduating seniors at their schools. So far he's filled at least 800 orders.
