Icing Smiles – For Superkid Nathen

This past weekend, I made a cake for a super kid through Icing Smiles. Icing Smiles is a wonderful non profit organization that provides cakes for kids and families that have been impacted by a critical illness.

Superhero Cake

Nathen was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma when he was only 2. He has been living at the Ronald McDonald house in NYC, and just celebrated his 6th birthday. Being a nurse at an oncology institution, this cake was extra special to me. Words can’t express how happy and grateful I was to be able to help make his celebration a memorable one.  He had a blast at his Super Hero themed party.  Even Batman showed up!

Here is Nathen with his cake. Isn’t he the cutest?

You can learn more about Nathen and receive status updates on his Facebook page, Prayers 4 Nathen.

If you’d like to donate a cake, or if you know of a family in need, visit the Icing Smiles website.

I’ll be doing a video on how I made this cake later this week, so stay tuned!

    That cake is AMAZING!! I think Icing Smiles does great things for these kids, I had the honor of working with them in June and it was a special experience for me and my 2 daughters, I can’t wait to work with them again!
