Celebrate National Cupcake Day February 25

Monday, February 25 is National Cupcake Day and proceeds are being used to support SPCA’s and Humane Societies in many parts of the country. I was looking forward to baking dozens of cupcakes with my daughters so we could participate in fundraising. Sadly, my broken wrist has gotten in the way of our plans. Next year, I’ll just have to bake double the amount!

In honor of National Cupcake Day, I’m showcasing some cupcakes that I’ve presented on Life Through the Kitchen Window over the past year or so. I hope they inspire you to do some cupcake baking and worthy fundraising of your own, whether this year or next!

I hope someone brings cupcakes into the office tomorrow; I’ll gladly make a donation for one of these sweet treats in support of preventing cruelty to animals and funding programs that find loving new owners for abandoned pets.

    • I don’t know where to start either! If I could bake today I might start with the twice the vanilla cupcakes, but then again those chocolate cupcakes were really good. The little boy blue cupcakes are definitely the most spectacular but they take the most work, what with the little meringues. But then again, you’d have the meringues too! Actually, today I’d go for the lemon. Maybe …!

  1. That’s a beautiful cupcake round-up, Mar, and for a great cause. What a wonderful way to raise funds and awareness of a worthwhile charity. I hope the day is successful.

  2. I didn’t know there was an official “National Cupcake Day!” It seems that you have made so many wonderful cupcakes that we should celebrate them every single day to the year!!

    • Thank you so much, Judy! I hope next year I’ll be able to participate and get out there to actually raise some funds. It’s a great cause. Thank you for asking about the re-blogging; yes please go ahead. I’m honoured!
