    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Jane Hauth, affectionately known as “the Cake Lady,” has baked and delivered cakes and other pastries to Sumpter Smith Air National Guard Base for the last three years as part of an ongoing charitable effort.
    She has dedicated countless hours to baking for public servants, including the military, police and firefighters. She takes her mission personally, baking around 58 cakes in a given month.
    Last year the base temporarily became operational twenty-four hours a day for an Operational Readiness Inspection. Hauth cooked and delivered enough sandwiches, casseroles and desserts to feed personnel all around the base for four days.
    Hauth is part of Cooks on a Mission, a ministry that cooks for churches, public servants and local charities. They hold “pop up shops” for the Well House, an organization that provides shelter and support for female survivors of human trafficking. They cook with the women from the shelter, and all the money from the sales goes back to the Well House.
    She has never eaten one of her own cakes.
    “I don’t eat anything I cook… I’m diabetic. About six months before I was called, my doctor told me to control it with my diet, and I did. And then I wound up making cakes!” The Mountain Brook police department assists in taste testing her recipes.
