ugust, almost regardless of where you live in the world, is a renowned slow-news month, when many vacation or take time off work, and what is called ‘silly season’ appears or comes into force. It’s traditionally a very wild and wacky time.

ou may find yourself away from home, having a staycation or stuck in work, or just winding down a little during August - and maybe coping with the August heat. This is the perfect time to ring the changes and rather than ignoring this period, it is better to just embrace it – let your hair down and join in with some of the fun, wacky, offbeat, unusual and frankly bizarre theme days for the month of August.

hey are a simple way of bringing in a bit of fun and humor to your workplace, everyday life, and social circle.

upcake Day is one such day … and before anyone else grabs this theme and makes it their own declare it as yours! Why? Because you can have some control over it. You can make some bariatric-friendly cupcake treats that you, as well as everyone else, can enjoy (and they seriously won’t know the difference between a wls-friendly option and a regular one). How? Because I bring you a Healthy Chocolate Cupcake recipe that you can take along to your workplace, turn up with to a social gathering, or gift to someone who might well need a treat in August. Made with bariatric-friendly ingredients and substitutions that certainly aren’t wild or wacky!

nd if sweet doesn’t hit that spot then turn the tables and make a savory offering – make small lasagna cupcakes (recipe will be included in the second edition of the July newsletter) for a picnic, savory lunch box for co-workers, for a family meal, or just treat for yourself (so that you don’t miss out on the action). Even post it on your favorite social media platform to show you’re no kill-joy!

 

A LITTLE HISTORY TO SET THE SCENE
& SOME FUN FACTS

Cupcakes have been widely loved in the US since the 19th century and are a common sight at birthday parties, office celebrations, and anywhere else the small baked cake in a paper or aluminum cup is appreciated. They probably originated in the 17th and 18th century and may well be related to English Fairy Cakes.

Most started out as small cakes where the ingredients were measured out using the
standard cup – hence the name cup cake. They often used to be baked in ovenproof
teacups too.

The originals were somewhat plain and were more like a lighter pound cake than a modern cupcake. Most would have been larger in size than the ones we see today too. Many very early cupcakes were also savory and covered in gravy!

Now they come in many flavors, can be plain or frosted to within an inch of their life, and even feature tiered as wedding cake assemblies.

There are many special cupcake days in the National calendar (some associated with
charities) – they are good to give as gifts, to raise money, and to enjoy. It’s important to
have a good time making, sharing and enjoying this American dessert or treat favorite without guilt!
