Chocolate lovers rejoiced in a day of chocolate filled happiness during this yearâ€™s Chicago Fine Chocolate & DessertÂ Show, a celebration of all things chocolateâ€”and this year, dessert! TheÂ celebration benefited the showâ€™s charity partner, Icing Smiles Inc.
Icing Smiles, a nonprofit organization, is devoted to providing a temporary escape and positive memory for children and their families who are impacted by critical illness with cakes!Â The company provides critically ill children with beautiful custom creations for special occasions, donated by local bakeries and pastry chefs.
Icing Smiles has been baking a difference since 2010. They understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness.Â Their goal is to create a 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.
