I received another call to action from Icing Smiles, the nonprofit group that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. If you are a baker and haven't signed up to be a partner, I highly recommend doing so! They are always in need of fun cakes, dream cakes, cookies and delivery helpers. And of course donations are accepted too.
The best present I got this holiday was receiving this picture of Mari and her princess castle cake. Her mom told me her favorite color is yellow and was recently granted a trip to Disneyland from Make-A-Wish. Mari got sick on her birthday and had to spend time in the hospital, which makes me so sad, but I'm so glad to know that I contributed to the beautiful smile on her face.
