Depressed Cake Shop


Sweet Sad Treats for Mental Health Awareness

After a two-year hiatus, NAMI Seattle is so excited to be bringing back our popular event, Depressed Cake Shop, in 2022!

Depressed Cake Shop is a community event where attendees can purchase treats made by dedicated and talented local bakers. These confections are gray and dull on the outside, but on the inside they are brightly colored – and, of course, all around tasty!

Why gray? The treats’ gray, dark outsides represent depression. On the inside, the RAINBOWS and other bright colors symbolize hope. Based on the national Depressed Cake Shop model, all proceeds from this event support NAMI Seattle’s programs.

Thank you for joining us in 2022! Stay tuned for details about 2023.
