Icing Smiles: Baking Cakes for Ill Children

1 comment

You can almost always guarantee a smile on a child’s face when you present them with a cake. Icing Smiles works to bring simple joys to critically ill children by giving them custom cakes on their birthdays. Chaffin Luhana LLP is proud to donate to Icing Smiles on behalf of RaeAnn Daly, who works as an intake specialist with the firm.

This non-profit organization was founded by a woman named Tracy Quisenberry. On the Icing Smiles website, Tracy explains how her career took a turn after both of her children were born prematurely and struggled with health issues early in their lives. Her idea for Icing Smiles was sparked by what she describes as an “ugly” cake for her son’s birthday. She was “determined to create cakes that transported kids to a sugary world of fantasy and imagination.” Icing Smiles creates wonderful memories for children and their families.

To help Icing Smiles you can either donate or become a baker. RaeAnn has been baking cakes over the past year for this organization. She said that the family you are paired up with chooses a theme and you then have free reign over the design of the cake. “The family then comes and picks up the cake. They always cry, they always hug you a bunch of times and the child goes crazy for their cake. It is a very, very emotional transaction. Most of these families could never afford a cake like this for their child’s birthday because of their extensive medical bills. They are very humbled to have such great cakes to celebrate birthdays or other occasions,” she said.
