SPOKANE, Wash. - The South Hill's Nothing Bundt Cakes is bringing nothing but smiles to a local family.
It was business as usual for the bakery until they heard some awful news from a client and that's when the bakery decided to help the best way they knew how.
Last week Sharon Wagner received a call no parent wants to receive.
"I got a phone call from the fire department that my two teenage daughters had been in a bad car accident," she said.
She had been on her way to meet with clients, hoping to bring them treats from Nothing Bundt Cake, and felt awful having to cancel the pick up.
"They were very apologetic we said that's okay don't worry about it, and they said we'll pick them up tomorrow," Jolyn Canty with Nothing Bundt Cakes said.
By the time tomorrow rolled around Sharon learned the severity of her 15-year-old daughter's injuries, including lacerations on her liver, spleen and pancreas.
"By far my worst nightmare. I was at such a low point. I hadn't slept in two days and the whole time I was so worried about my daughter, she was touch and go," she said.
So she called the bakery to cancel her nearly $200 order.
"They refused to take payment, I offered my credit card and they said absolutely not they just sent their best wishes," Sharon.
The generosity from owners Jolyn and her son Sam didn't end there.
"We have cake! We'll go give them cake," Jolyn said.
"A few hours later I get a knock on the door and there's a nurse holding one of the cakes and they had redecorated it to be a 'Get well' cake and had a special card personalized to my daughter," Sharon said.
The Cantys also gave cakes to the nurses and doctor taking care of Sharon's daughter, telling them the cakes were from Sharon.
"I had never met them. I had never done business it was going to be my first order and that's what is so amazing," Sharon said.
"We opened the bakery in mind saying if we can be a blessing with our bundt cakes let's just do it, whatever way we can let's just bless the community," Jolyn said.
With her daughter home and on the mend, Sharon says Nothing Bunt cake better get used to seeing her around.
"I'm going to be doing lots of business with them," she said.
