Next Monday, February 23, 2015, is National Cupcake Day. On that day, humane societies all over Canada are fundraising with cupcakes. You can visit their website if you'd like to host your own cupcake party.
I thought I'd do things a little differently. Quelle surprise! Since I don't know a lot of people who'd buy my cupcakes (which IS kinda surprising, because I'm a darned good cook!) I decided to revert to my usual childhood MO. I've baked a dozen chocolate cupcakes, and I'm selling them to Mr. Coco. Yup. That's right. You want a cupcake, buster? Where's yer toonie? ($2 per cupcake is the suggested donation, according to the Gananoque Humane Society.) We've decided to support the Gananoque Humane Society and the Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project in equal measure.
But isn't there some way that we could all just toss a toonie in the hat? A toonie! It's nothin'. Not even the cost of a Starbucks coffee. So, I had another idea...
I've been seeing those really cute cupcake wrappers around the internet lately. They jazz up even the simplest cupcake. I thought Cassie cupcake wrappers would be fabulous. So, I made some. And here's the thing: If you'd like to make your own Cassie Cupcakes and help a great cause, you don't have to spend much. Just a toonie will make a difference. You'll find the Cassie Cupcake Wrapper template on Craftsy. Print the .PDF on your home printer on heavy-weight card, and cut on the lines. Just like in kindergarten. Simple. All the proceeds will go to the Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project. How else can you feel so good about yourself for only 2 bucks?
The world will be a better place. I promise.
