In celebrating Mandela Day, Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer built the biggest cupcake mosaic in the Southern Hemisphere.
This took place on the 13th of July 2013 at the Fourways Mall in Johannesburg. Thousands of cupcakes (5000) were iced by
volunteers and cancer patients. This was an opportunity for some of the cancer beneficiaries to give back and do their
67 minutes for Mandela Day. The cancer warriors started packing the cupcakes on a cupcake mosaic which consisted
of 67 rows from left to right, representing Mr Nelson Mandela’s 67 years of service to his country.
It was a very busy and hectic morning, but everyone enjoyed themselves and had so much fun in icing the cupcakes.
The money raised from selling the cupcakes will be donated to The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust.
A big thank you to our ambassadors IFani; Major League Djz and MsCosmo.
