Cupcake Coma

I didn’t think it was possible.  I love cupcakes.  Perfect little hand-held, sometimes bite-sized, soft, creamy packages of love, flour, butter, and sugar. 

However, when a $5 charitable donation buys you a ticket to cupcake paradise, the only way the story ends is in a frosting induced coma.  But it was worth it…

Cupcake Camp!    Last night numerous professional and amateur cupcake bakers came together for a night of fun and frosting on your fingers (and face).  

Organized by fellow local blogger Elizabeth, Cupcake Camp was a free event open to the public with the hopes of a $5 donation.  Once inside, you could taste and taste until your hearts delight! 

I was so happy to hear that over $2300 was raised for Lovin’ Spoonfuls!!

The event was most definitely a huge success! 

And now onto the goods…

These cupcakes were my favorites of the night!

These little bumble bee bites were my 2nd favorite!  They were from JannaBee’s and had a banana cake and a delicious honey buttercream (if my memory serves me right) IMG_8631 IMG_8633 IMG_8634 IMG_8638 IMG_8639  IMG_8642

The event started at 7pm, and went until 9, but even by 8 there were some tables that looked like this…

I’m glad we got there at 7 ;)

Now I think I’ve had enough cake to last me a month.

Thank goodness for Body Pump tonight!

It was a great event and I think next year I’ll join the bakers…looked like too much fun to miss out!

  2. It's been so fun to hear everyone's recaps of the evening. It was fun planning this with Elizabeth for the second year. I didn't get to try the one with the bee, but I heard it was really good.

  7. Great to see you too and to meet your husband! Your photos are great! The one with the bee was my second favorite after the pink lemonade! But the bee wins for cuteness.
