Las Vegas, NV, February 15, 2016 (Newswire.com) - The Depressed Cake Shop, a pop-up concept that raises money and awareness for mental health, will debut in Las Vegas on February 24th from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the Las Vegas Woman Magazine Spring Cover Premiere Party at Silverton Las Vegas inside the Veil Pavilion. Michelle “ChefMitchie” Curran, Co-conspirator of Depressed Cake Shop Las Vegas (DCSLV) and owner of Mitchies Munchies, will be selling “Grayed” baked goods and treats for customers to enjoy. All proceeds will be donated to Team RWB.
Depressed Cake Shop UK, founded in 2013 by Emma Thomas/Miss CakeHead, has raised $70,000+ for charities worldwide by engaging bakers to donate and sell sweets dressed in gray with a pop of color on the inside. The project’s message has spread through social media and has received press attention around the globe, with mentions from outlets like Time Magazine, the Huffington Post, Vice, and Oprah Magazine.
"Mental health needs support, what we see on the outside doesn't reflect what's on the inside at all. A sad gray colored cupcake reminds me of people who have lost their smiles, but when you cut into the cake and see the pop of color, it reminds me that there is hope, and that all is not lost. This is the sweetest way to help and remind people challenged with making their smiles, this is temporary, help is close by. You matter."
Michelle "ChefMitchie" Curran, Co-Conspirator, Depressed Cake Shop Las Vegas and Owner at Mitchies Munchies

When asked why she chose to bring Depressed Cake Shop to Las Vegas, ChefMitchie responded, “Mental health needs support, what we see on the outside doesn’t reflect what’s on the inside at all. A sad gray colored cupcake reminds me of people who have lost their smiles, but when you cut into the cake and see the pop of color, it reminds me that there is hope, and that all is not lost. This is the sweetest way to help and remind people challenged with making their smiles, this is temporary, help is close by. You matter.”
