I was given the opportunity to create another outstanding over the top kind of cake for a sweet little girl through the organization Icing Smiles.
Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. We understand that the simple things, like a cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness. Their goal is to create custom cake for the ill child, or their sibling, that provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a positive memory during a difficult time.
This cake was made for beautiful little girl celebrating her 9th birthday with several family and friends at their neighborhood club house. Her younger brother is battling Mitochondrial Disease, and she too has the gene for the same disease but has not had a severe attack yet as her brother did a few years ago. Both siblings have birthdays close together, so mom wanted to celebrate a big birthday this year after battling so many health obstacles, so Icing Smiles came to action!
Icing Smiles contacted my close friend and cake artitist Angela Sinnet with Angela's Sugar Shack and asked her to do both, but with such a busy weekend for her she asked if I could help with the weekend as well. I was thrilled she thought of me and thrilled Icing Smiles contacted us both!
Hadley's cake was themed after a rock princess party. Zebra stripes, hot pink and an awesome edible guitar cake topper!
Both Hadley and her brother are on a gluten free diet. So mom asked me to create a special gluten free cake special for Hadley to enjoy. Not only was her cake gluten free, the guitar was made with gluten free Rice Krispies! (And they are not that bad, my kids have enjoyed eating them!)
Now here is my friends AMAZING Star Wars Lego theme cake. All I can say is WOW!
Hadley and her cake and yes I was super excited to see how her outfit coordinated with the cake and that was definitely NOT planned!
Happy Birthday Hadley and Zander!
