Add donations through the fundraising page 6. Choose a winner in your own cupcake competition Choose Wisely Eggs – Choose Wisely on Cupcake Week!GSPCA chickens - choose free range When baking cupcakes for GSPCA Cupcake Week it’s important to use eggs that have come from free range or cage-free farming systems. Cupcake Week raises funds to help the GSPCA fight animal cruelty – so by baking cupcakes using cage-free eggs you’re not only raising much needed funds for the GSPCA but helping get hens out of cages at the same time. There is overwhelming scientific evidence to support the GSPCA’s view that hens do not belong in cages. Frustrated from an inability to express natural behaviours as simple as scratching in the dirt, caged hens suffer chronically throughout their short lives, millions around the world exist in less space than an A4 piece of paper! Steps to remember when choosing eggs for your cupcakes Step 1 Avoid buying cage eggs all together. If it doesn’t specify the production system then it’s safe to assume the eggs were produced by hens in cages. Step 2 Look at the label. What you’re looking for are certified barn-laid, free range or organic. Certification means that the standards to which eggs were produced are publicly available and you can then decide whether you find the hen’s living conditions acceptable or not. Step 3 Be discerning. If in doubt, ask your store manager where the eggs have come from and how the hens have been housed. Remember, you have the power to help get hens out of cages! Thanks for supporting Cupcake Week for the GSPCA and thanks for Choosing Wisely. Fairtrade Guernsey The GSPCA would also like to encourage you to use Fairtrade goods where possible. By changing to Fairtrade, you can change the lives of farmers and producers across the developing world. If more people change to Fairtrade, it demonstrates our support for producers and expresses our dissatisfaction with the unfair trade rules that currently keep millions of people in poverty. A simple action like buying Fairtrade can trigger a positive change in peoples’ lives in developing countries as well as sending a message to our own leaders that we want change in global trade rules. Planning your Cupcake Party Planning Your Cupcake Party in 5 easy steps! Step 1 – Mark your calendar Cupcake Week for the GSPCA is officially held between Monday 24th and Sunday 30th May.

You may want to add some food colouring to the icing to get the right colour for fins, feathers, fur or fangs! Things you can use to decorate… Food colouring – Can be used to change the colour of icing and coconut – great for making realistic grass! Tubes of icing for drawing on cakes – Can be found in the cake decorating section of your supermarket.

Lollies – Everything from Smarties to Snakes to marshmallows to liquorice can be used for ears, tails, facial features and scales.

Chocolate is especially toxic to many animals! Here’s a simple recipe for dog ‘pupcakes’ so your canine pal doesn’t feel left out! Pupcakes Here’s a dog-friendly pupcake recipe you can use on Cupcake Week. Remember, pupcakes are special treats and shouldn’t be fed to your dog regularly! This recipe makes around 12-14 pupcakes.GSPCA Cupcake Week Guernsey Ingredients 2 ¾ cups water ¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce ¼ cup oats 4 cups wholemeal flour 1 cup dried apple pieces (you can also use a fresh apple) 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 free range egg, beaten 4 tablespoons honey Method Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Spray muffin tins with cooking oil. Mix all wet ingredients thoroughly. Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients slowly and using a wooden spoon, mix ingredients well to make sure no dry mixture is left. Pour into mixture into muffin tins and bake for 1 ¼ hours. To check if ready, insert a kebab stick into the centre of one of the pupcakes. If the stick comes out dry, the pupcakes are ready to come out of the oven. If not, bake for another 10 minutes and re-check using method described. Place on a cooling rack or wooden board until cool and then serve one to your pup! Store extra pupcakes in a sealed container.
