I cannot *wait* for Cupcake Camp Boston tonight! Aren’t you excited too? There will be tons of cupcakes from local bakeries, tons of additional cupcakes from amateur local bakers, proceeds go to support Lovin Spoonfuls, a local nonprofit that rescues food from restaurants to serve to those who need to eat, AND it’s only $5 to enter. What’s not to love?
TIP: Get there EARLY. The line to enter was quite long last year and there may be a wait to get inside. Plan ahead!
Here are some pics from last year’s well-attended event:
For you planners out there, here are more details:
On Monday, May 21st, 2012, CupcakeCamp Boston, a gathering of cupcake enthusiasts, is bringing sweet cupcake creations back to Somerville, MA at Arts at the Amory for the 3rd Annual CupcakeCamp Boston to benefit Lovin’ Spoonfuls, a food rescue nonprofit dedicated to providing healthy, ready-to-eat food to those in need!
Each year CupcakeCamp gives professional bakers, bakeries and amateur bakers alike the opportunity to showcase their most delicious cupcake creations to hundreds of people. From 7:00PM to 9:00PM, guests can indulge in a cupcake extravaganza featuring thousands of cupcakes for only $5! For those interested in skipping the line, CupcakeCamp Boston has created a new VIP hour held from 6:00PM to 7:00PM which, for only $25 per ticket, will give guests early access to the confectionary creations and swag from Lovin’ Spoonfuls as well as a chance to win prizes from Whole Foods whose co-sponsorship and support along with Boston Cupcake Crawl run by Boston Chocolate Tours makes CupcakeCamp Boston possible.
Proceeds from CupcakeCamp Boston benefit Lovin’ Spoonfuls, a nonprofit organization that recovers and distributes perishable and un-served food to local crisis centers, soup kitchens and other social assistance entities. “CupcakeCamp has always been about food and fun, but also the spirit of giving back. Food access is a widespread problem and we’re thrilled to be able to raise money to benefit local food rescue organization Lovin’ Spoonfuls in their quest to eliminate hunger in the Boston area,” said Elizabeth Ginsburg, founder of CupcakeCamp Boston.
A limited number of tickets for the VIP hour will be pre-sold for $25 and will go on sale during the first week of May, 2012. General admission tickets are $5 and will be available at the door. For more information, please visit www.cupcakecampboston.com/
