Planning an event with friends

Think of the best Sunday session you’ve ever had… now add cake, companion animals and fuzzy fundraising vibes to the mix. That’s what a Cupcake Day event with your mates looks like.

You can hold your event on any weekend or weekday throughout the month of August.




Get Started

1. Prepare

Begin your Cupcake Day journey by signing up as a host. Then use our Cupcake Day tools such as a Cupcake Day host guide, decorative bunting and posters – all the things you need to throw the purrfect party.

Start brainstorming punny ways to share the great news with your friends.

2. Plan

Drop the news in your group chat or set up on event on Facebook to let your mates know when your Cupcake Day event will be held. Tell them why the RSPCA is a cause you’re so passionate about, encouraging them to bring along a plate and a donation!

We’re sure they’ll be as keen as a vanilla bean!

Then the serious stuff begins: what will you bake?!

3. Party

The day has finally arrived! Hang up your bunting, lay out your sweets and tell everyone about all the animals they’re helping!

Remind your friends of all the ways they can contribute – by donating online via your fundraising page or by dropping some cash in your pop-up donation box on the day.

Time to relax, eat, chat… and eat again!
