Let me introduce you all to Brendan, then you can read his story … :)


Me and my VDub dude :D

Last weekend I met this very special little boy who turned 6 that week and his gorgeous mum had applied to Baking A Smile for a birthday cake, a truly wonderful non-profit organisation. Brendan has Intractable epilepsy, quad cp, gastro fed, blind, severe GDD, and 15q2 deletion (a very rare genetic disorder). He’d already had 5 seizures before I got there and was pretty darn tired ! He won’t be able to eat any of this, or even see it, but he WILL be able to touch it with his mum’s help. 30 minutes in the house with them all and I came out happy, relieved, shattered, grateful … and smiling ! They gave me a photo of Brendan with a few words written on his behalf … Such beautiful people, all of them !! A cake full of every kind of emotion, I won’t lie, it was a tough one ! I can’t say I won’t ever moan again, but for now, well …
Here was his cake … I tried to make it quite ‘tactile’ so he would be able to feel his way around it, and later heard back from his Mum that they’d all had a wonderful party … The rain stopped and the sun shone and the cake got eaten and enjoyed (even though ‘Mum’ hadn’t wanted to cut it :D ) … A perfect day for everyone !! <3
