Alzheimer’s Society in Wales created a Euro themed cupcake display to support Wales’ presence in the European Football Championship Finals and to celebrate the UK’s first ever Cupcake Day in association with woman&home on Thursday 16 June, which is also the day that Wales take on England.
Everyone is encouraged to bake, sell or buy cupcakes at events up and down the country. From organising a sale at a school to hosting a get-together at the weekend, it’s easy to get involved. Every cupcake sold will help Alzheimer’s Society find a cure for dementia, fund vital services and campaign for the rights of people with dementia. £60 would pay for a dementia research-focused blood test, £20 would pay for someone to attend an Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Café for a month.
The cakes were designed by Sugar Pop Cakes, a local Cardiff home baker and Wales football fan and themed to celebrate Wales’ presence at the Euros in France.
You can sign up at cupcakeday.org.uk for a free Cupcake Kit and discover how to bring your own unique style to the table. Alzheimer’s Society is encouraging all bakers to share pictures of creations using #CupcakeDay on Twitter and Instagram.
