Cake for Icing Smiles

I've created many cakes in my life, big and small ones. Cakes for celebrities and for all sorts of celebrations. But none were as special as the cake I made a few weeks ago for an amazing little girl, Antoinette. I was given the honor of making her 12th birthday cake through the wonderful organization, Icing Smiles. Icing Smiles provides cakes to critically ill children and their siblings.

The party took place at the Ronald McDonald House in NYC. There is a party room decorated with all the characters from the comic book, Archie. Antoinette requested a vanilla cake with vanilla frosting.

I carved the cake from a block of layers (with a support board and dowels inside)

If you'd like to know more about Icing Smiles or if you are a cake designer and want to become part of their network of sugar angels please contact them here.
