Cake has always been a popular way of bringing people together for a celebration. Icing Smiles Inc., a nonprofit organizationÂ that provides custom cakes for critically ill children,Â has partnered with Nielsen-Massey Vanillas to create the perfect recipe for cheer this holiday season.Â Nielsen-Massey recognizes that there are several key ingredients needed in order for Icing Smiles to “Bake a Differenceâ€ and will be assisting through a financial partnership as well as product donations.
Icing Smiles delivers custom cakes and treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child, matching chronically and critically ill children with volunteers who bake and donate fabulously over-the-top cakes. The non-profit was founded in early 2010 by a Tracy Quisenberry, a mom who firmly believes that everyone should use their talents to serve others, and who wanted to give back in a three-dimensional, fondant-covered way.
Today, Icing Smiles has been transforming lives one cake at a time with the help of an amazing group of 4,500 volunteers across the country. For these volunteers, known as Sugar Angels, itâ€™s not just about delivering birthday cakes. Itâ€™s about delivering a sense of hope and a feeling of value to those in need, especially kids.
