2015 Cupcakes for Conservation
Valentine's Day is right around the corner which means its cupcake season!! Every year we choose 2 conservation projects and develop a fun fondant animal representing the species to top your cupcakes. The cupcakes are hand delivered on Valentines Day to your special someone. They are delivered in decorative boxes containing a photo keepsake of the animal and information on the conservation project supported by your purchase. 100% of proceeds from each cupcake sale go to the conservation project supporting that species.

California condors are a rare and distinctive species that play a big part in America's natural heritage and history. In 1982, only 22 individuals remained alive in the wild, but through extensive legislation, conservation and captive breeding programs, their numbers have increased. However, these magnificent birds still face threats that impede their survival and recovery including lead poisoning, ingestion of trash, and habitat loss, among others.
All proceeds from the purchase of the California Concord cupcake benefit the Ventana Wildlife Society, the only non-profit organization releasing and monitoring condors in California. Their goal is to establish a viable population of condors with 150 birds and at least 15 breeding pairs.

Pangolins, also known as the spiny anteater, are heavily hunted in both Asia and Africa for food, for use in traditional medicines and as fashion accessories. Their populations are crashing as a result of the huge demand for their meat and scales. They are also threatened by habitat destruction and degradation resulting from human activities. Immediately halting illegal trade and broadening conservation efforts is critical to the survival of this remarkable group of mammals.
All proceeds from the purchase of the pangolin cupcake benefit the IUCN Pangolin Specialist Group. They serve as leaders in global pangolin conservation efforts and act as a catalyst for pangolin related research and conservation fundraising.
