For me baking is all about giving joy. Baking for a critically ill children or a their siblings is something even greater, it brings at least temporary joy, relieve, a moment of escape and normalcy, it creates beautiful memories... For a baker it is humblings and at the same time elating experience. This is why I joined Icing Smiles Inc.
Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. They work is based on donations from both professional and amateur bakers.
This fundraiser is at the same time a cake contest. Each dollar donated is also a vote for a cake ($1 = 1 vote, $20 = 20 votes etc.). It is always nice to win, but honestly, just vote for the cake(s) you like. At the end of the day it will be children and their families that will win, no matter which cake will be considered the best :) And this is what really matters!
