This was a very special order for a very special little girl’s 2nd birthday.
I was connected with this family through Icing Smiles, a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. You can see their cakes and some of the many children and families they have blessed so far on their facebook page here.
The little girl I created this cake for, Jaylah, has a rare genetic disorder of the nervous system (KRABBE). Being able to use my “gift” to bring joy to this family was so special. It was wonderful working with her grandmother to come up with a fun cake – and it was such a blessing to be able to meet Jaylah when I delivered the cake. She is so sweet.
Here is a picture of me and Jaylah with the cake…
Jaylah loves Spongebob so he had to be the focal point of the cake, of course! Her grandmother told me she also loves butterflies, sunglasses, and chapstick so I incorporated all of those things into a cute and fun cake designed to represent all of Jaylah’s favorite things. Here are some pictures I took of the cake before I delivered it…
Happy Birthday, sweet Jaylah
Please join me in praying for Jaylah and her family.
