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 gave my daughter a birthday she will never forget. After 4 years of waiting at home in bed and 4 months in intensive care, my daughter received her heart transplant and wanted to CELEBRATE! Icing Smiles stepped in and gave her an over the top 15th birthday cake that made her feel SO special. What a gift...

The amazing people at Icing Smiles and the incredible volunteers who dedicate their time and talent to them have brought so many smiles to my children's faces! When presented with cancer as a child, it's the little things, like a gorgeous cake, that really make an impact!

Icing Smiles provided my family with the opportunity to have a wonderful birthday cake on my son's first birthday! The baker, Tutu Cute Cakes that they coordinated with did an over the top job and the cake tasted delicious! Everyone I talked to through during the process at Icing Smiles was incredibly helpful & so uplifting!! My son has never left the hospital, and Icing Smiles helped us have the best first birthday possible! Our nurses were incredibly appreciative as well.

We received a beautiful cake for our son who has cystic fibrosis a couple years ago. It was his first Birthday that he wasn't in the hospital so we wanted to make his party very special he is feeding tube dependant but loved the cake and even tasted it even though he doesn't like to eat( a big deal). It was lovely and meeting the person who baked it. They are so awesome!

Icing Smiles is an amazing organization that puts families first! My family has been through thick and thin; when I say thick, I mean it has been like molasses. Nonetheless, Icing Smiles has been there to put a smile on my families face! Thank you all for what you do! We are blessed by a service that makes our day, every time we ask!
