One of the most rewarding things I've done as a cake artist is participate as a "sugar angel" for Icing Smiles. This organization matches volunteer cake artists with seriously or terminally ill children in their local area, and the baker provides a custom celebration cake for the child. All cakes are donated, and each baker covers the cost of the cake they are making. Icing Smiles is sponsoring a "Best Cake Ever" contest, and I've been invited to participate. I'm sharing a photo of the birthday cake I made for the 50th birthday celebration of one of my closest lifelong friends. If you think this could be the "Best Cake Ever," please show your support by making a contribution to Icing Smiles.
