Beautiful~! The greatest gift that we can give to others is what we seek for ourselves. Appreciation! Thanks!

Excellent descriptions and message - and I absolutely LOVE your last paragraph! Good stuff.
The title is so appropriate to the MC. I really like how each person is compared to an ingredient in the cake - quite creative.
Good read, and good message!

This is very sweet. (No pun intended.) I love Angela -- you created a great character. You gave her just enough obnoxiousness and tenderness. Good job.
Superb craftsmanship, and a lesson we all need to deeply internalize. I wouldn't be surprised to find it as the "icing" for Masters this week.

It's a stretch to work the "Angela's" into fellowship - but your MC did it in an excellent way. And gave us all a good message. Great story.

Acceptance is important to all of us but especially those with differences from the mainstream. Your illustration here works very well.

This is gorgeous—brought tears to my eyes.
So good! I got a little weepy at the ending.

Wow! Great story. It would also be an awesome illustration to use sometime in a Bible study.

I still don't know if I'm matching the right story to the right hint, but here I go. I read this earlier this week and really liked it. I like the way you re-define "Icing on the cake." Usually it's tongue in cheek, which it was to start and then transformed to a sincere appreciation of the "icing". God always seems to know what He is doing. Excellent story. God bless.
I love this! You brought the characters to life, and the ending is memorable.

This one put a lump in my throat. Written with grace and sensitivity; thank you.

This line brought tears to my eyes, “Angela, I’d like you to help. Come over here by me.” The simple obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit is wonderful! "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40 Thanks for sharing. God bless you!

This is Totally Super (to borrow from the teens). Seeing the inner struggle of the MC really brought it home. The final paragraph was truly 'the icing on the cake'. Loved it.
Oh, this one is really good!!! This one touches the heart and inspires as well as providing some humor...
Oh, this is so convicting. I have a friend I can't wait to share this with. Very moving. WONDERFUL! Congratulations.

I really like your story a lot, really, really, really a lot. Even more, I really like to see it acted out in real life, a lot, really, really, really a lot. Even more, I hope to act it out in my life. People like Angela and MC are sweet. We are a family, indeed. :)
