August 27th 2012 is the date set for the next SPCA cupcake day.  Zhakita Cake Designz has participated in this wonderful event for the last 3 years.  Each year just gets better and better....and busier.

 Last year over $1200 was raised for the SPCA with over 600 cupcakes having been pre-sold for delivery the next day...WOW!!! what a huge effort but with such a worthy cause the effort was certainly worth it.


With generous sponsorship from Gilmores Henderson for the ingredients and Pacific Cartons International for the packaging we were able to bake,decorate and package 5 delicious  handcrafted cupcakes ready for delivery to our excited followers...most being loyal customers from the last 3 years.

We are so very proud to support the SPCA in this worthwhile this space and lets see if this year we can top our own record again..............

We had another fabulous day with our stand proving very popular with brides and grooms alike and plenty of delious cake samples for everyone.

 We had an array of beautiful designer cakes on display and with many couples choosing to book their wedding cakes on the day with us and many following that week after consultations and cake tastings in our beautiful cake studio that week.


We look forward to being apart of this show again next year and supporting out local businesses.  The team at The Lincoln Green do an incredible job with this expo and each year it just gets better and better
