The official National Cupcake Day for the RSPCA in Australia will take place on Monday, August 17, 2009. Cupcake makers across Australia will try to beat last year’s sales of 250,000 cupcakes. 100% of all proceeds benefit the RSPCA.

Among the events this year is Most Creative Cupcake.’ Some of the cutest cupcake entries are pictured above. You can view more RSPCA cupcake submissions HERE.

A new contest for 2009 is Extreme Cupcake Eating.’ Some cupcake lovers really went to extremes in the spirit of winning. The website disclaimer cracked me up. “Please note: Any injuries sustained in the pursuit of Extreme Cupcake Eating are entirely the responsibility of the participant who thought he or she was impervious to danger!” All in the name of the RSPCA and a $100 prize. Some of the thrill-seekers included:

Two women who took a cupcake break over some of the scenic Tasmanian waterfalls in an old open canoe.

A woman who ate her cupcake while Sky Diving because she got hungry. I imagine the love of cupcakes acted as comfort food to quell her fear of plummeting to earth after jumping out of a airplane.

One man munched on a cupcake before making his descent down a mountain top as part of the Wollongong State Emergency Service (SES) vertical rescue training day.

You can contribute to the RSPCA cause by purchasing the cute cupcake stuff for sale online the website to benefit the organization.
