Bridgewater resident Paula M Surette from Cake By Paula teams up with Icing Smiles

 
After donating several cakes Paula Surette of Cake by Paula decided it was her passion to grant smiles with her custom cakes. Paula is now the state representative for Icing Smiles which consists of locating a baker when a family is in need of a custom cake. She will keep in contact with the family until after the cake is delivered to make sure everything went smoothly. With volunteering the other duties consist of finding bakers willing to donate their time and wonderful creations and providing information to the communities within Massachusetts. This is a completely volunteer position that Paula takes very serious as she strives to provide the biggest smile of all.
 
Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. We understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness. Our goal is to create a custom cake for the ill child, or their sibling, that provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a positive memory during a difficult time.
 
Memories have magical powers. Long after the cake is gone, the memories linger-- memories of the kindness of a stranger, of the art of the design, of the sweet smells of a special treat, of the smiles and laughs, of a normal childhood experience so often stolen from these children. These memories are why we say, "It is so much more than a cake."
