Thursday, when you pick up an Icing on the Cupcake dessert, $1 from the purchase will go to The Red Cross. The money will go toward helping those affected by the earthquake in Japan and Pacific tsunami. The American Red Cross provides assistance to those affected by the disasters with essential goods such as food, water, blankets and medical aid. International response has been overwhelming, with support coming from thousands of organizations and millions of individuals across the globe, including over $10 million from The Red Cross. Purchase a cupcake from any of Icing on the Cupcake’s three locations March 31 and the shop will donate $1 for each cupcake purchased to The Red Cross. Icing on the Cupcake in Rocklin is located at 5065 Pacific St. For more information, go to or call (916) 315-9500. ~Staff report
