Cupcake Camp Paris 2011 is COMING

Our official poster...
I am proud to announce that we are hosting the second annual Cupcake Camp Paris on October 2nd, 2011 in the City of Light.  The event will take place at Le Comptoir Général in the 10th arrondissement, along the Canal St-Martin.

Now the question follows, what IS Cupcake Camp?  The childish little cakes have quickly become the new food trend over the past few years and Ariel Waldman decided to host an event a few years ago in California to celebrate the now-famous cupcake.  The event sparked Cupcake Camps around the world, from Bombay and London to New York and now Paris.  People get together to share recipes, hold contests, and enjoy the baking prowess of other cupcake fanatics. 

Along with Cat Beurnier, I helped launch Paris’s first Cupcake Camp July 4, 2010 and this year with Nicollete van der Doe we’re happy to bring the second edition to cupcake-hungry Parisians.

The event is a day where amateur bakers can bring their cupcakes to the table to share with other cupcake enthusiasts.  Participants who attend the event can purchase the cupcakes as well as enter raffles for various baking-themed prizes that have been graciously donated by our many sponsors.  All proceeds from the event will be donated to a charity that is very near to us, the Make a Wish Foundation, which offers sick children the chance to fulfill their dreams.

Cupcakes, cupcakes everywhere...

We are still hungry for more bakers, so spread the word and get your whisks ready.  You can register your cupcakes on our blog here and you can RSVP for the event on Facebook here.  The public can enter freely but the cupcakes are what will raise the money for our charity.

I hope to see you all there on October 2nd, and come hungry!
