This cake is inspried by Icing smiles, sugar angels and all the other foundations that provide cakes for critically ill and sick children.
We dont have any of these foundations that service my area in country South Australia but there is me :-)
so here is the story. I hope you enjoy reading it :-) xx
Every cake has a story but this one is a bit Special .
Just under 4 months ago I reached 2000 lovely “Likers” on my page and to celebrate I was going to have a competition but decided against it when I decided some petal cutters or new bakeware etc for someone wasn’t really going to be remembered and I wanted to do something that was remembered . This is when I decided I was going to find someone special to donate a cake to instead. It was just going to be my gift to them on their birthday but who??? Lol. That’s when my mum suggested to get in contact with the Make A Wish foundation, Riverland Branch. So that’s exactly what I did.
A few months past and I thought they forgot about me haha but I finally got a call saying they have found someone for me, Yay!! I was so excited and today I got to deliver the cake I made especially for Little Caity who turned 8. Caity has a disease that I can’t even pronounce let alone comprehend and her disease is ongoing and something she will live with for her whole life but today when she saw her cake she was just like any other excited little girl on her birthday. The look on her face when I came around the corner with her cake was priceless and when she said “How did you know I love P!nk” hehe I just had to smile knowing that her grandparents who were in on the surprise did their homework well. The cake was perfect for this funky gorgeous little girl.
This all would not have happened without the amazing behind scene’s work done by Dalas and Karri at Make A Wish, Riverland branch so a huge thank you for helping me give my gift. Thank you also to Caitie’s Parent’s and Grandparents , friends and family for making us feel so welcome in your home today. Xx Tina and family, Sweet T & Cake
