THERE was a cupcake for every taste at Trevallyn Primary School yesterday thanks to the dedication of four of its pupils.

Socially responsible grade 4 girls Hannah Sutherland, Emma Elliott, Holli Niland and Lily Redburn spent the better part of Sunday baking up a storm for the RSPCA’s Cupcake Day fund-raiser.

Lily, 10, explained she had always planned to bake for the national fund-raiser, but had to shuffle her plans when she realised it fell on a school day.

She advertised, liaised with teachers and borrowed a cookbook from the school library in preparation for yesterday’s event.

‘‘I got some friends on board – it’s a great cause to be working for,’’ she said.

‘‘I’ve always loved animals.’’

About 350 cupcakes were baked in flavours ranging from vanilla with white chocolate sprinkles to raspberry with sprinkles.

Each sweet treat retailed for $2.

Principal Cheryl McFadzean commended the girls on their dedication.

‘‘I’m just so impressed with their initiative and entrepreneurship,’’ she said.
