UPDATE: July 7, 2015, 2:20 p.m. EST -- In a conversation with The Huffington Post, Icing Smiles founder and executive director Tracy Quisenberry discussed the Elsa cake that went viral. "We would love to use this as a blessing to spread the word on what we do," she said. "Perfection is not required to make a difference. The cakes still have an impact, and when they come from the heart, that's what the children who receive our cakes feel."

UPDATE: July 6, 2015, 10:26 p.m. EST -- McGreevy Cakes updated its Facebook page on Monday with more information about the "Frozen" cake. According to another Facebook post, the cake was created as part of a non-profit organization called Icing Smiles, which provides custom cakes to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. The language in the original story below has been updated to reflect this information, and as McGreevy Cakes put it in the Facebook post below, "'Cause at the end of the day, they took a risk, and instead of hiding in their safe little comfy box, they stepped out of it for a second and gave it a go. And THAT'S what I think this life is all about."
I'm being asked by... everyone, what I think about the recent posts/articles about my Elsa cake and another baker's Elsa...
Elsa, the star of Disney's "Frozen," looks much like her "real" self on the left, while it seems a baker took some liberties with her likeness on the right.
Mashable reports the cake design is from an Akron, New York-based company called McGreevy Cakes, though the Daily Mail reports that the cake was not made by the aforementioned bakery, but by an "unnamed baker." McGreevy Cakes' website says the company only posts tutorials for how to make certain cakes online and does not make cakes for the general public. So it looks like someone took this project on themselves.
The Huffington Post reached out to McGreevy Cakes and the Reddit user, and has updated the language in this post to reflect McGreevy Cake's Facebook post. The language in this post has also been updated to reflect the origins of the cake.
