You may have seen this side by side picture of an Elsa cake going around, but it turns out there’s more to the story than people thought. While McGreevy Cakes is listed on the original picture, McGreevy didn’t make the cake on the right. They offer tips and tutorials on cake design. The Elsa cake that came out…different appears to have been made as part of Icing Smiles, “a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child”.
So, this cake was made out of kindness—for no profit. The Internet probably feels so bad right now.
The baker who made the original design even weighed in to remind people that, while the cake wasn’t perfect, someone worked hard to make it.
And this is the little girl that got the cake. Looks like she’s all smiles.
