Chocolate Cupcake Day was established to celebrate that most perfect form of the Cupcake, the Chocolate Cupcake. Cupcakes are called by many names throughout the world, our personal favorite would have to be the term “Fairy Cake” from the British. The origin of the cupcake seems to go back as far as 1796, where cakes cooked in small cups were first mentioned, and the actual term cupcake was first seen in Eliza Leslie’s cookbook.

South Carroll celebrated this holiday by selling all kinds of chocolate cupcakes for $1 and putting the money earned towards charity. Students were very excited about this holiday, some buying entire trays of cupcakes.

This holiday was beneficial for students and for the charities that will get the money earned.
