Victorian Bushfire Appeal



When my lovely electrician hubby volunteered his services for bushfire victims I felt a bit useless and wracked my brains for something I could do for the Bushfire Appeal. So I hatched an idea to do a fundraising bake-up and sent out the word that I would bake boxes of yummy cupcakes with all the proceeds to be donated to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal. I baked HEAPS and HEAPS of cuppycakes in three flavours

Flourless Orange Cupcakes with Citrus Buttercream Frosting

White Chocolate Mud Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and

Hummingbird Cupcakes with Maple Syrup Buttercream Frosting.

These have all gone down a treat and I have raised around $600 for the appeal.

On a final note, sorry to those waiting to hear about my Iron Cupcake entry, I have had to postpone entering until next month due to all of the frantic baking for the bushfire appeal.
