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.”

I have been the Kansas State sponsor for Icing Smiles for the last 4 years. I will continue to sponsor Icing Smiles as long as I live and then my son will carry on the sponsorship. We do this in honor of my husband who dearly loved kids and thought they should all be have the best cakes to celebrate a special event.

The compassion this organization has is inspiration for all of us. I especially love when the Sugar Angels and followers come together to ensure a "cake emergency" is covered. Icing Smiles will always have a place in my heart.

I recently attended the Icing Smiles Buttercream Ball in Miami, FL and not only did I have an amazing time, I also learned a lot about how to help an amazing organization. Icing Smiles is a god send for those with a child in need. I would encourage everyone to donate, volunteer or just pass on what Icing Smiles is to help those in need.
