It’s a Cake Thing
IT’S A CAKE THING
Imagine spending your birthday in a hospital bed. It’s an unfortunate reality for too many children, which is why Icing Smiles Canada has recruited volunteer bakers to create special cakes for birthday kids in the hospital or with serious illnesses. Eight-year-old Luca Borecca, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2011, had a sweet homecoming on Dec. 1 when he was released from the hospital to celebrate his birthday at home. His mother threw a big bash, complete with an Icing Smiles Canada cake handcrafted by It’s A Cake Thing’s Daniela Pantaleo, who claims it was a joy she won’t soon forget.
