Aucklanders celebrated the SPCA's eighth annual Cupcake Day two weeks early this year by indulging in cupcakes and cuddling puppies at a pop-up dog cafe in the CBD this morning.
About 40 people attended the preview event at The Caker's Karangahape Rd shop between 10am and midday. Money raised from today's sales will go towards the SPCA's fight against animal cruelty.
The SPCA aims to raise $400,000 on Cupcake Day, which will be held on Monday, August 15, this year. The charity is asking Kiwis to contribute by baking and selling their own sweet treats and donating proceeds. To register to participate in SPCA Cupcake Day, click here.
