Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Gift Distribution, Human Services

Mission: 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.”

Icing Smiles is a wonderful organization! I feel honored to be able to not only volunteer as a baker but also as state rep. It is such a joy to see smiles of children that benefit from this great group!

I am a hobby baker for my family and friends. I submitted an application to Icing Smiles and was thrilled to be accepted as a sugar angel. These children and families go through so much on a daily basis, if a cake can bring a smile then I am honored to be a part of that. This was my first Icing Smiles cake.

I love being a volunteer baker for this non profit. I love to bake and enjoy seeing the joy it brings to those that receive the cakes. I continue to help spread the word about Icing Smiles by sharing information with local school couselors.

I am a cake decorator and have donated 2 cakes to Icing Smiles kids. The first was for a 10 year old girl who had fought cancer for 2 years and was finally in remission, the other was a 3 year old boy who had hardly ever lived outside the hospital. The families and children were thrilled and grateful for the cakes. I could tell it meant so much to them to have something to celebrate and it changed my life to see these families who struggle and are yet so strong. I love being a volenteer for Icing Smiles.
