I am feeling so many emotions right now!!! I am finally able to share the news with all of you! It's official!!! I am the State of Iowa Representative for Icing Smiles! I am also now one of their bakers! If you are not sure what Icing Smiles is let me tell you!!!
We are Baking a Difference
Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. We understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness. Our goal is to create a custom cake for the ill child, or their sibling, that provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a positive memory during a difficult time.
Memories have magical powers. Long after the cake is gone, the memories linger-- memories of the kindness of a stranger, of the art of the design, of the sweet smells of a special treat, of the smiles and laughs, of a normal childhood experience so often stolen from these children. These memories are why we say, "It is so much more than a cake."
PLEASE... take just a few minutes of your time to watch this beautiful video about Icing Smiles. I'm immensely honored to work with such an amazing team and to bake for such amazing children and their families. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNDcJfor3Ns
