Do you like cupcakes? Ok, stupid question. C’mon, who the heck doesn’t like cupcakes? If you like cupcakes as much as I do, then you’re probably familiar with Cupcake Camp. The first Cupcake Camp was held in 2009 in San Francisco. Since then, there have been dozens of independent Cupcake Camps held in cities all over the world including New York, Toronto, Paris, Orange County and now LONDON!
For those of you not familiar with Cupcake Camp, let me explain: Cupcake Camp is a mass gathering of of people with one common interest – their love of cupcakes. All of the cupcakes are generously donated by cupcake lovers who choose to either bake or buy cupcakes. Then comes the best part – the eating part! For a £1 donation Cupcake Camp will be selling tickets that can be exchanged for cupcakes. £1 = 1 cupcake, so if you really love cupcakes £10 will get you 10 cupcakes! That’s a pretty sweet deal. And you know what else is even sweeter? All proceeds will be donated to the North London Hospice Society. It’s cupcakes for a cause! There will also be a contest element for the cupcake bakers. There will be 6 different cupcake categories including Best Taste, Tastiest Vegan and Halloween Inspired. The contest will be judged by a panel of judges including the founders of London’s own Primrose Bakery. Sounds like fun huh?
But wait! I’ve got another piece of exciting news about Cupcake Camp London.
Made With Pink is an official sponsor of the event!
