National Pro-Life Cupcake Day is a day dedicated to both a sweet treat and a serious problem facing our world: abortion. Statistics show that 55 million women globally have abortions each year, or over 21% of all pregnancies. Cupcakes For Life, the organization behind National Pro-Life Cupcake Day, aims to raise awareness of the issue and start meaningful conversations with women on the subject.
National Pro-Life Cupcake Day was created by Cupcakes For Life to reach out to women and discuss abortion in a calm, sincere, and friendly manner. Cupcakes are used as a symbol to represent the unborn children that could never have a chance to appear in the world. Cupcakes are a sweet way to start a serious conversation and many women who initially don’t make contact with the organizers eventually open up and share their opinions and stories.
Cupcakes have a long history of their own. Recipes for cupcakes were published as early as 1796 in a cookbook by Amelia Simmons. They were also mentioned in the early 19th century and have since become a popular dessert across different cultures.
- In Romania, cupcakes are seen as a very festive dish and are only served on special occasions.
- In the UK, cupcakes are often decorated with icing or marzipan and served for Christmas.
- Patrick Bertoletti holds the world record for the most cupcakes eaten in 60 seconds – 772!
- American cupcakes are often flavored with cognac, liquor, or candied fruit.
