August 19 – Cupcake Day

(Third Monday of August)

Posted on August 19, 2013

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Australia is holding a Cupcake Day to raise money for and awareness of the organization. 

You can participate even if you don't live in Australia. Just make and sell cupcakes to friends, neighbors, and relatives, and then donate the earnings to the nearest SPCA or Humane Society.

Any excuse to eat cupcakes, right?

Tip: make the cupcakes in the evening, when it isn't hot outside. Then you can decorate your treats tomorrow morning, when they've cooled off, and sell them all day tomorrow!

Stick with the animal theme by making your cupcakes into animal cupcakes

Use this video to learn some of the techniques, which of course can be used to create many different animals. 

Check out your country's version of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Mine is ASPCA
