I was asked to make a cake by Amanda (who had requested one of my all time favorite cakes, the Creature Comforts cake) for the organization Seas It, that she runs with her husband, Todd. Seas It is a great non-profit that teaches "cancer recovery through recreation".
You can read the amazing and touching story here, but basically Todd was told was that he had only months to live. Through hard work and the loving support of his wife Amanda, he is working towards recovery and doing great, five years later! The cakes and cupcakes were for a fundraiser for Seas It, and I was lucky enough to be able to attend. The event was inspiring and touching, and the location, their lovely house by the shore, was the perfect setting. Amanda asked me to make a cake commemorating their home, their organization, and Todd's amazing achievement. Congratulations, Todd, Amanda, and Seas It!
