Beard cakes from Baking for the Taking

Eamon Daly's Things My Beard Can Lift is an increasingly harrowing fund-raiser for West Garfield Park's Off the Street Club, for which the hirsute Daly hoists ever larger objects attached to his frighteningly bushy mug. For every $100 donated he adds another pound. His last attempt at a 32-pound Gary Fisher mountain bike brought the total up to $3,243. The goal is to hit $5,000 before the beard gets ripped from his face.

Appetizing? No. But those cupcakes are.

Baking for the Taking owners Marisa Martinez and Table Fifty-Two pastry chef Leslie Morris have created these commemorative beard cupcakes and will donate $10 to the cause for every dozen sold. No actual hair will be used in the their creation, and orders will be taken with the customer's choice of cake and icing--six of each. The offer's good until Saturday, but this Friday the 13th Daly will lift the weight tallied to date in flour and other bakery staples.

Beard cakes are $20 a dozen and can be ordered by calling the bakery at 773-951-5025.
