The great thing about the internet is that you get access to a wealth of knowledge and get to know a whole bunch of people you would have otherwise never have met.
A while ago, Lilia from My Sweethearts Bakery contacted me about doing a joint activity for RSPCA cupcake day (Aug 17th) after seeing the post on my blog. In the middle of planning something, we got contacted by the RSPCA to make cupcakes for their media kits they will be sending out a week before the actual Cupcake Day. So instead we channeled or efforts into baking 300 cupcakes each for the RSPCA media kits.
The RSPCA Cupcake Set
So exactly how long do 300 cupcakes take to bake? Waaaay too long considering that my humble oven can only take 24 at a time! But luckily I had the boyfriend to help out with some of the baking. About 300 little figurines were also created for the cupcakes which took a good 10 - 12 hours to do. Then another 9 hours to cover the cupcakes and put it all together! Thank goodness I had my cousin over who helped me with some of the decorations!
I didn't have time to take good photos so please excuse the bad lighting :)
At the end of this RSPCA baking journey I was exhausted but also made a great new friend, Lilia :) It's always nice to meet people who share the same passion and hobbies as you do :)
There's still more to come but for now I'll leave you all with more pictures of the RSPCA cupcakes :)
