Icing Smiles – A Cake for Jeffrey (7)
I’ve been putting off posting about this topic because frankly it brings me to tears every time I think about it. Back in October we partnered with our favorite organization, Icing Smiles, to do a cake for Bizzie to celebrate her 3 1/2 year old birthday. Bizzie had been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor.
On 1.15.11 Bizzie got her angel wings. Not too long after Bizzie’s passing, the family reached out to us through Icing smiles to see if we could do a cake for Bizzie’s brother Jeffrey who was turning 7 this weekend. We happily obliged and I was again brought to tears after reading this thank-you note from Jeffrey’s mom:
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the “most awesome cake EVER” (direct Jeffrey quote). As you may recall, my daughter Bizzie was the lucky recipient of a pinkalicious bday cake a few months back. Bizzie passed away on 1.15.11. Bizzie talked about her cake all the time, and even the day before she passed away was looking through pictures of that day pointing to the cake. It was a very special memory for her.
Jeffrey’s 7th birthday party was today. We did not want to cancel it, so amid all of the craziness in our house we managed to plan a party. Jeffrey is not easy to impress, but impress him you did. He was SO in awe that all four Hogwart’s houses were represented in detail on the crest. He’s been through a lot these past nine months. Thank you for helping to make this day so special.
The cake was amazing tasting as well…all the parents were raving. Even the party hosts were abuzz that Jeffrey had a Pink Cake Box Cake!
I attached some photos of Jeffrey with his cake. I have some from the party, but there are other kids in there so I did not know if you would want those as well.
Thank you again-
Special thanks to Rose Carvallo the cake coordinator from Icing Smiles for volunteering her time to help coordinate this.
We are so thankful and touched that we could in some small way help make a positive difference for this family in their time of need.
