Baking a Difference

“Charity isn’t about pity, it is about love.  Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love.  So don’t just give money, but reach out your hand instead.” – Mother Teresa

 

Dorian was our first Sugar Angel assignment back in September of 2012.  She was born with Tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart defect.  It was extremely moving for us to be able to spend a few hours meeting Dorian and her parents, Joe and Kim, getting a brief glimpse not only of their struggle, but also of their immense joy.  Three stronger people we've never met.

Here at Cozy Cub Cakes, giving back out of the resources and talents we have been blessed with is extremely important.  It’s why we not only give 10% of all sales proceeds to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, but we are also volunteer Sugar Angels with Icing Smiles.

Icing Smiles is a non-profit organization based in Maryland started by Tracy Quisenberry that partners with hospitals and other non-profits across the United States to provide a variety of celebration cakes free-of-charge through a nationwide volunteer network to families with children age 19 and under suffering from a critical illness that is either life-threatening or requires frequent or extended hospitalizations.  They also provide cakes for healthy siblings, who consistently put their own lives on hold and sacrifice the attention of their parents who are dealing with the ill child.

To request a cake, become a volunteer, or make a donation, please visit their website at IcingSmiles.org.  Help them bake a difference today!

 

 

 

Dorian’s 5th Birthday Cake

Imagine our delight when the family contacted us, requesting us specifically to make the cake for Dorian's 5th birthday! It was our honor to make this Little Mermaid cake for her, and we were so pleased to see that Dorian was active and thriving, just like a normal 5-year-old should!
