Cupcakes to raise $$ for cats, cows, chooks, canines & more
Cupcakes have grown up. Once only seen at children's parties, they now appear at gourmet food markets and have dedicated cake shops. If it's been some time since you indulged, the RSPCA Cupcake Day on 18 August offers the perfect opportunity to rediscover these delicious treats. It's also a great way to raise funds to support the RSPCA and the thousands of animals in their care.

Cupcake Day is not one event but rather hundreds of mini-events throughout Australia. Teams or individuals register, supply the cupcakes and a venue and then invite family, colleagues, classmates, and friends. Donations can be made in cash on the day or on a fundraising page.

Get Started

Pick a date. Though 18 August is the official day, anytime in August is fine. Decide on a location (your office, school, club, maybe a stall at the shops) and then register and start creating your fundraising page. The page offers the option of cash, cheque, or payment by credit card and Paypal. The RSPCA website is full of great fundraising tips. Here are a few ideas:

Nominate a goal amount

Personalise your page with photos and messages
Invite your friends – think Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, text messages – and use the free resources like posters, invites and digital images

Get Cooking
Basic maths shows why a team will come in handy: you want 120 cupcakes? Get 9 other people on your team making one dozen each, and think of the variety. Don't have a favourite recipe? The RSPCA has that covered too. Go here for recipes including chocolate, vegan, gluten-free and even "pupcakes" for your canine friends.

On the day
Decorate your table with animal pictures, hang banners; play the Baby Elephant Walk and maybe even wear a cow onesie, but most of all have fun!
