Occasionally Cake will give out one free gingerbread man cookie per person for those that donate a toy. The Firefighters and Friends toy drive was founded in 1995 by Capt.

“We encourage all of our patrons to come out and help support our firefighters and those in need this holiday season,” said Sabrina Campbell, owner of Occasionally Cake in Alexandria and Mount Vernon, Va. stores. “Firefighters give so much of their time and are always there when we need them, it’s great to be able to help give back to the community,” said Campbell.
Both Alexandria cake boutiques offer more than 100 cake and gourmet cupcake flavors. Occasionally Cake is also renowned for their cake truffles. Instead of discarding leftover cake, it became the centerpiece of their cake truffles, and then dipped in Belgian chocolate.
