cupcake-day-logo-2016

Everyone knows of our location on Grand and LaSalle, but have you visited our satellite location in the South Loop? If you haven’t, it is a must!

The Everyday Adoption Center is a state of the art shelter that’s located in the South Loop PetSmart. It’s completely staffed by The Anti-Cruelty Society so you know they know their stuff. The EAC even has a large doggy play group room where you can sit and watch the adoptable dogs frolic for as long as your heart desires. Most importantly, we adopt out an additional thousand animals a year at the Everyday Adoption Center!

More exciting news regarding EAC; Magnolia Bakery will be donating 50 cupcakes to sell for Cupcake Day! If you’ve never had Magnolia’s cupcakes before, like EAC, they are a must. Not only does Magnolia make delicious cupcakes, they are philanthropic to boot. They donate daily to local food pantries and international relief efforts. How sweet!

Now that I’ve added two things to your October bucket list: visiting EAC and tasting the glory that is Magnolia cupcakes, I’ll tell you how you can knock ‘um both out at once. Cupcake day is October 17th, stop by the Everyday Adoption Center at 1101 S. Canal St. from 1-7 pm and get your cupcake/pet fix.

Buttercream Goodness

Oh, cupcakes, the perfect dessert. Individually portioned into the perfect size, ideal icing to cake ratio, perfect for sharing, and when it comes to flavors, the possibilities are endless!

Take buttercream for example, always a crowd pleaser, how could it not be when it marries two dessert champions like butter and cream? But did you know you can make delicious and innovative variations on this classic icing? Not all of us can be Martha Stewarts in the kitchen, but most of us can follow a recipe.

Get inspired and spruce up a classic vanilla cupcake with one of these creative and delicious spins!

Dog-Friendly Cupcakes

We love our pets like family members. I hope I’m not just speaking for myself when I say I buy my dogs Christmas gifts, Starbucks puppuccinos and of course, celebrate their birthdays! My Anti-Cruelty alum has an adoptiversary coming up and she will most definitely getting some sort tasty homemade of treat.

So while you are making your cupcakes to sell for Cupcake Day, might as well make some cakes for your pup. Just make sure you don’t mix up your human treats with your dog treats, although, with these recipes they would probably taste just as good!
