For those whose love of cupcakes goes beyond the death of the trend years ago, TODAY is National Cupcake Day! In honor of this national day of cupcakery, Susie Cakes is offering a free cupcake in exchange for an unwrapped toy.
Now, today’s holiday is not to be confused with October 9’s National Cupcakes for Life Day, in which you were encouraged to have a candlelit cupcake vigil for all the aborted babies in the world (the thought of all the cupcakes eaten in honor of non-baby babies just warms the heart, doesn’t it?). No, this is a more All-Encompassing Cupcake Day, so go ahead and have a cupcake in honor of all people who made a life-wrenching choice to do what was right for them. Or, if you’re not one of those awful people who must turn the personal into the political every time you eat, sleep, work, or socialize, buy a cupcake for cupcake’s sake.
