Remember Baltimore's Bicentennial Birthday Cake? I didn't want you to miss Frederick N. Rasmussen's story about the "35-ton embarrassment" Baltimore's city fathers whipped up for America's Bicentennial celebration. Am I losing my mind? Was that really 35 years ago.

“You can't help but smile around a good cake!” says Tracy Quisenberry. An “icing smile,” she explains, is the special grin on the face of a child tucking into a big piece of frosted fantasy. Quisenberry is founder and executive director of Icing Smiles, a Howard County-based nonprofit whose purpose is to bring a free customized cake - and a special experience of joy - to kids suffering from life-threatening conditions. The organization's first cake was delivered by a volunteer baker in January 2010; six months later, the effort went viral, expanding yeastlike to today's more than 6,000 bakers across all 50 states, Canada and the Netherlands (with more in at least a dozen countries just waiting for requests)

The summer birthday season in our family began with my husband's birthday, just before July Fourth. He never enjoys celebrating his birthday, but he likes cake and plenty of it. This year I ordered one with fudge icing, as he had enjoyed a friend's fudge cake this spring. I requested a big, 10-inch cake, so he would have plenty to enjoy in the days after. He offered to go with me to pick it up; he pictured me dropping it before it came home. When he lifted it from our car, I saw him put his nose to the box. He likes paper and is fond of smelling pages of books.

HAZARDS OF the trade: In my last column featuring Baltimoreans who have gone on to fame in Hollywood or New York, Peggy Obrecht reminded me that I left out Remak Ramsay: "Remak, the late Carrie Ramsay's oldest son, is usually on Broadway in any given season. He just finished a successful run in 'The Heiress.' He is best known for the TV commercial he did for Noxzema. He's shaving while this Swedish model is whispering, 'Take it off, take it all off.'"Herbert Shofer called to tell me that I left out "Baltimorean Michael Tucker.

The weather report for Saturday morning reminds me that this would be the perfect day for making boiled white icing for birthday cake. My sister Mimi celebrated her birthday this week, and in another 30 days, we'll be celebrating the births of my father, my sister and twin nieces. My grandmother, Lily Rose, who was born in 1886 (or so; age was never mentioned) was a fast worker in that department. She could make any task seem easy. She had mastered her craft and was confident. She was also a generous person by nature and liked nothing better than delivering the goods for a family celebration.

When my server at Clementine in Hamilton asked my sister if she'd like to have the homemade coconut cake topped with boiled, white, seven-minute frosting, I had a vision of a cold winter day in my family's Guilford Avenue kitchen. Let me tell the story. My brother Eddie decided to cheer me up after my kitchen pipes froze and I got a $2,400 plumbing estimate to correct a bunch of ills in an old house. He suggested a fast run to Harford Road and the consolation of a good lunch where we could forget household issues for a couple hours.

Two special fundraisers took place at the Port Deposit VFW Post 8185 last weekend. In the big hall was a "celebration of love and support" for the Kessler Family, featuring several bands, a silent auction, raffles, food and door prizes. The proceeds of that 12-hour fundraising marathon will benefit local wounded veteran, Jeffrey Kessler. Jeffrey will soon move into the home provided for him by Homes for Our Troops, but donations of materials plus private and corporate monetary funding is still necessary to make his home a reality.

Samson, the Maryland Zoo's young elephant, made quick work of his vegetarian cake while a hillside of children and parents serenaded the birthday boy who is turning 4. His arching and nimble trunk first went for the prize, one of four big carrot candles atop a confection crafted of cornbread, mashed potatoes, squash, bananas and grapes, neatly garnished with lettuce. "He was actually smiling. I could have sworn he knew it was his birthday," said Sykesville resident Melissa Rectanus as she picnicked on pasta salad and strawberries with her husband, Michael, and children, Kelsey, Jessica and Abigail.

When the Baltimore Public Works Museum celebrates its 20th birthday on Saturday, there will be no typical party. Instead, the museum is marking the occasion with a Heavy Metal Birthday Bash, offering guests a chance to interact with the machines that keep the city clean. Equipment including a dump truck, a line-painting machine and a fire engine will be on site for guests to climb aboard and operate (in some cases). Kids can wear uniforms, gloves and hard hats and pretend to be workers.
