The only excuse you need to eat more cupcakes!
Something very exciting is happening this month - it's the RSPCA's Cupcake Day!
Basically it's a day to
(B) eat &
(C) support kitties and doggos!
Obviously the true reason is (D) all of the above, so if you love animals and you love food, here's how you can get involved!
You! Also your friends, family, colleagues, classmates, footy team, yoga studio, book club or your local knitting squad. Plus anyone else who loves baked goods and animals.
Get baking! It doesn't have to specifically be cupcakes, truly any yummy treats will do! If you're looking for a delicious cupcake recipe, we can highly recommend our Gingerbread Latte Cupcakes (vegan).
Because you love baking and you care about ending animal cruelty! The RSCPA does fantastic work everyday to provide shelter and care for animals who need love and a home. Not to mention, their fabulous wildlife rehabilitation, domestic animal adoption and animal care education programs. Your cupcakes will help to keep the RSPCA's doors and arms wide open for animals in need.
The RSPCA has recommended selling each cupcakes for $2, which means a batch of just 12 cupcakes can help to provide an orphaned kitten with a bed, litter tray, food and a toy. A batch of 25 cupcakes can provide a sick puppy or kitty with a week of antibiotics. And a batch of 50 cupcakes can desex a floofball so they can find their forever home.
Find somewhere to sell your treats! This could be in the office, your classroom, at a sporting practise sesh, club meeting or a dedicated house party. You could even go retro and hold a lemonade-style stall out the front of your place.
The official day is Monday 21st August, but any time is a good time! You could choose to sell the cupcakes over a few days or bake multiple batches for different groups or events.

- Convince a mate to host a Cupcake Day so you can eat all the cupcakey goodness without the effort of baking.
- Register online and create a Cupcake Day fundraising page, even if you aren't hosting a cupcake day and let everyone know how they can help out.
