Every cake I make is somewhat special to me, but recently I had the privilege of making a cake for a very special young lady whose family I have known for some time. As I made each element of the cake, she was on the forefront of my mind. They ordered the cake to celebrate the completion of the young girl's chemo treatments. The bell is symbolic of the one that is rung three times at the end of treatment. The butterflies are symbolic of the transformation she would go through on the journey to wellness. Written in gold are words of inspiration and encouragement that helped her fight and finally, the gold ribbon is to bring awareness to childhood cancer. This young lady is the epitome of strength and courage -- a mighty hero in a small package. And despite her illness, she somehow managed to help raise thousands of dollars for the National Pediatric Foundation. It gives me great joy and pride to say that after a long 2-1/2 year battle, she won. My family and I wish her continued good health.
