Icing Smiles!

I have been meaning to post this for over a month! Shortly after we opened for business, we became a baking partner for the inspiring organization called Icing Smiles. In June, we became the state sponsor for Virginia.

If you haven't heard of it yet, Icing Smiles provides custom cakes to children with critical illnesses and their siblings. Their services are available all across the US, and even in some other countries. It is growing quickly and is finding support all throughout the cake community, with both professionals and amateur decorators.

Storybook Bakery is proud to be a part of this wonderful organization and encourage anyone who is interested in becoming a baking partner, hosting a fundraiser, or making a donation to visit their website at Or visit them on Facebook:

If you or anyone you know are a parent to a brave critically ill child and/or sibling, visit the Icing Smiles website for information on eligibility and how to request a cake. The best advertising for an organization like this is us, so spread the word, and ultimately, spread the Icing Smiles!

Mermaid Cake & Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

This Mermaid cake was made for a lucky little girl's 2nd birthday! Here are a few photos of all sides of the cake, as well as close-ups of the mermaids.
We also tried out a new flavor combo, Strawberry Lemonade, for a relative's Going Away party this week. One of our cousins is deploying with a medical team to the Middle East soon. We wish her safe travels!

Lemon cupcakes filled and frosted with fresh strawberry buttercream. Yum!
