Res­i­dents got to vote for their favourite dec­o­ra­tor and buy cup­cakes for a gold coin do­na­tion. Pro­ceedswent to the SPCA’s ap­peal. Araf­fle was also held.

An­i­mal-in­spired cup­cakes of ev­ery de­scrip­tion­were clev­erly pro­duced in­clud­ing owls, frogs, birds, cows, chick­ens and ele­phants.

Shel­ters, or­gan­i­sa­tions, schools, busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als through­out the country or­gan­ise their own cupcake sell­ing events to help the SPCA. More than $96,000 has been raised na­tion­ally this year so far.
