"It's all to help very ill children‚" says Cupcakes of Hope founder Sandy Cipriano.

"Right now‚ we need to raise R600‚000 for stem-cell and bone-marrow transplants. There are desperately ill children in our network whose families need all the help they can get‚" Cipriano says.

"I would like to thank all our Cupcake Angels across South Africa, more than R300,000 was pledged towards Cupcakes of HOPE. The funds raised today will be used to save children's lives."

"This was a well-organised Guinness World Records official attempt which was impressive enough. However, to see the labours of those commendable efforts bring together the wider range of the community and for such a wonderful cause made the success of the attempt all the more special," said Glenn Pollard, the adjudicator from Guinness World Records.
