AIt's been years and years since I signed up, and I finally got my first call for an Icing Smiles cake! I'm so excited! Just wanted to share my excitement. :-) I know many many MANY people have already had this wonderful experience, some more than once.
I have just Googled them as I had no idea what this was. How very humbling. A lovely, thing to be a part of. I can't think of anywhere here in the UK that does something similar.
Jamie, that is awesome! The same thing happened to me yesterday, I got my first call to action from them and I have been up all night thinking about a design. This is so exciting.
AI think we do have something similar actually Kathy, not sure tho and it was a while ago I was reading about it. Wow AZ and Rosie! You must be so excited. :-)
AKathy, it's called little angels.
Hi Maisie - thank you. I just Googled them. It's inspiring. I will hopefully get good enough to contribute one day.
That is very exciting! I just read up on it too and I think it would be an honor for anyone to do! I think I'm going to sign up too, even though my cakes are nothing like yours! My sister just got a call today as a match for a bone marrow donor. Making a cake is nowhere near as painful as that but you can still feel really great about it. Please post more about what you're going to be doing and what the cake will be like.
It is exciting! I just talked to the mother of the child and her theme is "Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails".... I will definitely have some planning to do
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all sign up. There are so many out there who need us......
AOh congratulations AZ! I would be a total mess with too many ideas!! What are you thinking of making??!
AI second theresaf, please keep us posted both and show us the finished cakes. Sonic, you'll have fun with that Rosie, I've seen amazing Sonic cakes! :-)
Here's the link to sign up. It would be great if everyone did it! Thanks for the inspiration AZ and Rosie!
We could start a campaign and share our finished cakes on this thread!
AI think there's already a thread here with Icing Smile cakes, but I could be wrong. What are my ideas? Based on what was given by the little girl, I'm going sparkly and princessy!
AAnd a Sonic cake sounds fuuuuuuun!
AJust had a look, loads of threads! Fabulous cakes. Sparkly and princessy, that'll be fun. :-)
can't wait to see what you come up with.
AI'm definitely planning on making a tiara, I love making those.
We have the Make A Wish foundation here and last year we were asked to make cupcakes for a little girl. They requested 12 cupcakes puppy themed and we had staff ask if they could volunteer their time just so they could be a part of it. It was truly a wonderful/sad/happy/amazing experience for us all. You will get so much more out of it than you put in. Congratulations on being selected, can't wait to see what you come up with, I'm sure your cakes will be amazing.
That's fantastic! What a great program. I recently helped a friend with a cake for them. It was a really good feeling..
