CONCORD, N.C., July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Icing Smiles, a national non-profit, is creating a lot of smiles with the help of caring local bakeries all over the country and supportive corporate partners like PreGel America. It is through their generosity that over 13,580 custom cakes have been delivered to critically ill kids and their siblings.
Delivering their first cake in 2010 to Violet, a beautiful 6-year-old battling brain cancer, Icing Smiles has since provided cakes to thousands of children across the country. "We understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries for a family battling illness," said Tracy Quisenberry, Founder and Executive Director of Icing Smiles. "What we provide is so much more than cake. We serve up a reason to smile." Icing Smiles, with the help of their amazing network of more than 8,600 volunteer cake bakers delivers an average of 230 cakes each month.
Quisenberry knows these numbers would not be possible without the support of corporate partners like PreGel America. "We are thrilled to partner with PreGel and align with their philosophy of combining great passion with amazing ingredients."
