SPCA Cupcake day 2012 update



This week I received a lovely Christmas card from the SPCA - with a lovely cheeky message from the cat & dog. I was thrilled to see the SPCA raised $267, 993 from cupcake cooks nationwide. Kiwicake's is the SPCA's largest Cake suppliers sponsor. I proudly supply prizes for all categories in the competitions the SPCA run. I also work with the SPCA throughout the year, on other projects for which we supply prizes.


For 2013 we have some great things planned around SPCA Cupcake Day. Here in Whangarei and nationally in conjunction with SPCA. I'll update you more on that in 2013.

New classes listed for 2013

We've posted our new class list for 2013. Click on the classes tab above, under the blog banner to see full details & costing. A new initiative starting January 2013 will be Thursday afternoon classes from 12.30-2.30pm. This will allow any needing to get kids from school time to be at the school gate by 3pm. These Thursday afternoon classes will cost $25 per person and will include everything required to do the class. So you just need to turn up with a container to take your project home in. If you have any suggestions of things you'd like to learn on Thursday afternoons, just let me know.

There also details of a full weekend course, with a Wilton qualified instructor for fondant and gumpaste cakes.

Our Second Operation Scholarship cake



This lovely cake made for Brad (who is a twin) was the second cake Kiwicakes granted a supplies scholarship for. Stephanie Kavanagh from Kavanagh Cakes I included the baseball candles, as a little surprise for stephanie, I love how she put one on a wire and has the figures looking at it in flight. 


Bradley (on right of pic) is undergoing treatment for a brain tumour. The wonderful Stephanie (in the middle) from Kavanagh Cakes made this awesome softball themed cake for Brad to share with his twin brother Adam (on the left) on their 14th birthday!




I love some of the special details Stephanie did, such as the red stitching on the lettering


I think Stephanie made an amazing cake, if you'd like to know more about Operation Sugar and the Kiwicake's scholarships for cake supplies, click on the tab above in this blog


Our first Operation Sugar Scholarship cake



This gorgeous cake was made by Rebecca in Matamata for Kaiya who was turning 5. Beautiful Kaiya has had to cope with cystic fibrosis, diabetes & distal intestinal obstruction syndrome. However, as you can see by this picture that hasn’t dampened her infectious smile!


Rebecca was the first person to receive an Operation Sugar scholarship cake supplies grant from Kiwicakes. I think she did a great job. For more info on Operation Sugar scholarships, click on the Operation Sugar tab above in this blog.
