Our Inspiration

Cuf Cakes Story

We believe that each day with a child is a gift to be cherished. Every child is special and unique in their own beautiful way. Cuf Cakes was founded to give women everywhere a way to send a message that the time has come to find cures to those diseases and conditions that are life altering and rob our children of their childhood. Throughout the World we see our children face each day with courage and strength. While we are truly grateful for all the advances in care and medicine, we know our kids deserve more. They deserve the innocence of a childhood. They deserve a cure.

Our hope is that Cuf Cakes adds a little happiness, inspiration and hope to everyone who wears them. But most of all, wear your Cuf Cakes with pride knowing that we are coming together for a greater cause and we have the power to make a difference. When you see someone else wearing Cuf Cakes give a little smile or wink and acknowledge that together we will do it – one step at a time!

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest accomplishment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to make a difference in someone’s life and the world.
