Hi everybody! I hope your holidays are going well! I had some connection problems when I was at my dorm (for some reason I couldn't connect to the website to edit it), but everything seems to have been sorted out. I will definitely be working on the website these next few days and updating everything. Sorry about the delay!

Hello! For the next 3 days, Groupon's G-Team will be running a donation campaign for the Iced Capades Cakery. If 40 people donate $10 then we can organize parties for 4 children! Please share this with your family, friends and even your neighbors!

We have exciting news! This coming Monday, October 3rd, we are launching a campaign in conjunction with Groupon's G-Team! Please follow the link below or click the image to the side to subscribe. Our campaign will be right below the side deal on Monday!
Just a reminder for all of our supporters outside of Houston, you will need to look at the Groupon offers for Houston and not your local city! Although it's only on Houston's page, it certainly isn't limited to those from Texas. Feel free to share it with those out of the state and country!
We cannot thank you guys enough for your support!

Wow, it has been a hectic month for us. I officially made the move to Baylor so now I am updating from a new location! Anyway, I am pleased to announce that on August 11, 2011 Allison and I were proud recipients of the Jefferson Award!

We would like to give a big thanks to KPRC, Helen Osteen, Bobby Storey, Heather Dunn and ALL of our amazing volunteers. They have done so much to help the children and we cannot thank them enough!

I hope everyone is doing well. During the month of June we had so many volunteers step forward and help us out. Ms. Helen Osteen made 8 dozen cupcakes yet again and we are so grateful. Amber Hicks, Claire Bonasso, Berit, Avery, Daniette Hunter, Maricela Pecina, and Tracy Butler also all donated their time and graciously made cupcakes for the children. Thank you so much!
Crave Cupcakes has been supporting the Iced Capades Cakery since January of 2011 by donating cupcakes to us weekly. They have been fantastic to work with and their generosity is seemingly limitless! Just this week alone they donated nearly 300 cupcakes! Thank you so much!
Please check out their website! It is loaded with so many delicious cupcakes!

Hi everybody! I hope you guys are having a great summer despite the extreme heat! Recently, both Allison and I were featured on the KHOU Channel 11 "What's Right" segment! It was a fantastic experience and we are so thankful for the opportunity. Fortunately, KHOU uploaded the clip on their website. It's embedded below!
Also, although Allison and I are headed off to college, don't worry! The Iced Capades Cakery will still continue to support our shelters with the help of our great volunteers and our supportive family. Have a great summer!
P.S. May's gallery page has been updated!
Hello! I am so sorry for the late update! Allison and I have been swamped with so many events and activities!
This week, we had a blast playing games with the kids. Hopefully the kids enjoyed it as much as we did! Once again, we thank all of our volunteers who helped us during the month of April, even though we pulled it forward a week. We appreciate your time and help so much!

Once again, thank you Ms. Helen Osteen, the treasurer of the Houston Cake Club, for the 8 dozen cupcakes! They are simply astounding! So many generous volunteers have helped us this month, Crave Cupcakes, the Hunters, Ms. Anne Riddick, Ms. Julie Peacock, Ms. Michelle Pope, Michelle Chan, Ms. Claire Bonasso and Amber Hicks, so please be sure to take a look at the Gallery for this month's cupcakes :)

Hello everybody! I wanted to express my feelings of regret towards the volunteers that helped us in February. I apologize that I failed to mention any names and I just wanted clear things up since there was some concern about this. Every month, we receive an enormous amount of help and support from the volunteers and there is NO way that we could possibly support this many children by ourselves. We cannot possibly express our complete gratitude towards the volunteers and we cannot thank you guys enough!
I just wanted to give big thanks to Crave cupcakes, Ms. Helen Osteen, Terri Butler, Ms. Daniette Hunter and her children, Claire Bonasso, Michelle Chan and the Mestepys. We would also like to thank Ms. Retta Pryor, owner of Cakes By Retta, who went through some difficult times last month but still managed to donate 20 dozen cupcakes. I'm sorry that I disappointed you. I also apologize for failing to give proper recognition to all of the volunteers during the month of February and I hope that you guys can forgive me for my mistake.

I would like to start off by thanking everyone that took the time to vote for us in the Kindness Challenge! Your support was amazing and we cannot express our gratitude enough! It was a great run and again, we'd like to send our thanks to the Rachael Ray show and USA Today.
P.S. Happy Birthday Allison! Thank goodness I have complete control over the website and I can do as a wish on it! I hope you have a great birthday and a splendid time studying for exams. You're an amazing friend. If you want, we can go eat some crawfish etouffee later!
Your buddy, Laura.

Hello everyone! We've had quite the hectic month! After Allison's appearance on the Rachael Ray show and the start of the Kindness Challenge, the response from volunteers has been amazing! Not only have we received a spectacular amount of support locally, we have even received messages and offers from other countries such as Canada! Not only that, but we are setting up a new chapter of the Iced Capades Cakery in New York! We appreciate all the love and support that you guys have given us and we hope to continue to expand and grow.
Also, please keep following us on the Kindness Challenge! We have been giving video updates every week and we hope to gain more support so we can inspire more people across the nation to lend a hand to these children in need! Thank you so much for your support! Click the image to the right to go directly to the video blogs!
We also managed to record Allison's appearance on the Rachael Ray Show! Please take a look if you have some time!

Congratulations to Allison on her appearance on the Rachael Ray Show! We are so grateful for this opportunity and we cannot thank you guys enough! This exposure on the Rachael Ray Show could spark the change in the lives of the many children in homeless shelters across the nation! I hope we inspire others to become active in their area and donate to a local shelter. A simple cupcake can change the life of a child!
Also, be sure to follow us along as we attempt to attain our goal for the Kindness Challenge! It officially kicks off today! You can begin voting on February 28th. We hope to garner your support and inspire others to become active in their community! You can visit the USA Today micro site (by clicking the picture) and see Allison representing the Iced Capades Cakery. We thank you for your support and generosity. Thanks a bunch!
