On the 28th of July Cupcakes of HOPE created the World’s Largest Mandela Cake to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s centennial as well as to celebrate the lives of our little cancer warriors. This 3m tall cake was created by the International Cake Master Winner Dot Klerck and her amazing team of Cupcake Angels… Angelique, Crystal, Jack, Quinzelle, Charmonique as well as 10 year old cancer warrior, Khyla Korb.
This cake weighed more than 750kg and consisted of the following: 1200 eggs, 100kg buttercream, 290kg chocolate, 60kg fondant, 175kg flour and nearly one ton of LOVE… And it took 5 days to complete!
Sandy Cipriano, the founder of Cupcakes of HOPE, says “This has been a very special event today and what made it even more special is that we had Mandela’s Grandchildren here to help celebrate this special day. Mandela said it is in our hands to make a difference in the community, and what we are doing at Cupcakes of HOPE is using our hand to “Bake” a difference in the community. We hope that this event will inspire more people to become Cupcake Angels, this is by far the SWEETEST way to SAVE a life”.

Being a Mom is probably the biggest blessing in the world but being a Onco Mom is something that most of us will never experience but a true test to motherhood, but in our experience Onco Mom’s have super powers that not even they knew they had.
This year we asked our for Cupcake Angel’s to assist us in making Mother’s Day special for our Onco Mom’s, although their kiddo’s are in hospital they still want their mom’s to feel special. We asked our Cupcake Angels to assist us in making Mother’s Day special by donating hand cream, nail polish, biscuits and mugs.
Blessed beyond measure and as we started collecting donated gifts it was evident that so much time and love was put into each donation, it’s with the support of our amazing network that Mother’s Day was special …. THANK YOU CUPCAKE ANGEL’S our Onco Mom’s felt special and loved their special spoil.
Nursing is by far not for sissies, but being an Onco Nurse is a true calling and a job that only a selected few can take on. From our small glimpse into their world, they take on a massive responsibility and give the best care to many Warrior’s. They are part of a very important journey and face daily challenges that many of us think is impossible, they love as we do, they feel loss as we do, but every morning they get up and do it all over again. Yes the loss is hard yet there are many happy endings and that gives them so much purpose.
This year Nurse’s Day was on the 12th of May and in conjunction with our Mother’s Day visit we thought they deserved a spoil too. With the assistance of GlitzyGlam we arranged lip balm and gloss for each nurse, although something small it was just a little gesture to say thank you for everything that they do!
A big thank you to our Onco Nurses and for treating warriors as their own, always with a smile and for taking on such a special calling.
Last week Cupcake Angels spent the morning visiting Charlotte Maxeke and Donald Gordan Hospitals, it was time to spread some cupcake blessings over the Easter Holidays. It is always such a treat for the Warrior’s to do activity … a welcomed break from their reality! A big thank you to the staff at both hospitals who always make us feel welcome!
Of course, none of this is possible without to our Cupcake Angel’s who continuously support us through the year …. THANK YOU! We hope that you had a wonderful Easter.
