Cupcake celebration - KALB-TV News Channel 5 & CBS 2

Cupcake celebration

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Little Cakes with Big Attitude is celebrating its 100,000th cupcake at its Jackson Street location.

The event includes prizes and an auction for that cupcake.

But the celebration isn't just about cupcakes. The money raised from the auction, along with 20% of total sales, will go to the homeless students of the Rapides Parish School District.

"We wanted to incorporate some way of giving back to the community so we chose the homeless students of Rapides Parish because we didn't realize how much of a need that there is.  That's kind of a department or group of students that somewhat get overlooked.  These are students that are displaced; they're not with their parents.  They kind of are not really the crowd that wants to go out and seek help but we definitely think they are in need of help at this time," said co-owner Robyn Schwartz.
