Cupcake Friday!...on Thursday

Today is a very special Cupcake Friday...a little early!  I saw this on Amy Atlas' blog and feel the need to share and spread the word.  Here is a little excerpt from her post:

Icing Smiles is a non profit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by critical illness of a child. For kids with cancer, every birthday is a huge milestone that we may take for granted. Kate did a cake for Ben (see pictures above), who is battling brain cancer and had to be away from home on his 9th birthday. Can you imagine how happy Ben was to see that amazing cake on his birthday?
Right now Icing Smiles is up for a 25K grant from Pepsi, and need people to vote for them so they have more funding to make cakes for these special kids. Would you all take one minute to vote for them? I know we’re all busy, but this is such a great cause and can really make an impact on so many wonderful kids. If you want to learn more about Icing Smiles, you can check out their site here. Also, if you would like to do more, like bake a cake for a child — professional and amateur bakers are welcome — you can do that as well.
 Please take a moment and really give this some thought.  I know I will.
