Shoppers on the hunt for a Fathers Day gift this weekend have a chance to appeal to dad’s sweet tooth, while helping to raise money for cancer research.
Tracycakes Bakery Cafe on Marine Drive is selling ‘Daddy Patty’ cupcakes – in the shape of a miniature hamburgers – with partial proceeds going towards the Prostate Cancer Foundation of BC. Made from vanilla and chocolate cake, the Daddy Patty cupcakes are adorned with coloured icing made to look like ketchup, mustard and lettuce.
The bakery is also selling T-shirts that read ‘Real Men Eat Cupcakes’ for $25. One dollar from the sale of each cupcake and $3 from the sale of each T-shirt is to be donated.
The fundraiser kicked off on Monday and continues through this weekend.
