Icing Smiles

We were recently introduced to a non-profit organization that is using the incredible talent in the baking industry to improve the lives of critically ill children.

As if Kate Sullivan wasn't already my cake hero. Now there is just one more reason to love Kate, owner and master creator of
Lovin Sullivan Cakes in NYC. She recently made a cake for the organization Icing Smiles.

Cake by Kate Sullivan of Lovin Sullivan Cakes

Tracy Quisenberry is the founder and executive director of this AMAZING organization. Icing Smiles just became operational in January and already has volunteers in 31 states consisting of both professional bakers and hobbyists. They are working hard to expand their network of bakers, volunteers and donors to serve as many families as possible. Please take a minute to check them out and consider how you can help "Bake a Difference" You do not need to be a professional cake designer to help.
Read more about the cake Kate made for Icing smiles here on her blog. You can also stay in touch with Icing Smiles via Facebook. We are on sabbatical until the Fall but Confetti Cakes is looking forward to joining this organization's list of generous and talented cake designers.
