Cupcake Camp was today! It was amazing! If you had asked me the night before when I had baked over 100 cupcakes and had to be in work for 7:30am I might have said something different but I am so glad I went. The day was brilliant, so well run and well attended and lots of money was raised for Marie Curie cancer care.
People keep asking me what exactly Cupcake Camp is, well basically it's a day where both pro and amateur bakers (like myself) bring cupcakes, set up a table and open the doors to the public to come and feast for free! Yep, totally free cupcakes all day. There were competitions as well. Now, I never win anything - or I very rarely do. So imagine how chuffed I was to win a prize, the judges decided when looking at the cupcakes entered to add a category for Best Decorated Cupcake and I won for my Cookie Monster Coconuts! I was really embarassed and had to go up and probably looked really silly but it was lovely to win something, and I got £50 in vouchers to spend in my favourite cake shop so I will be stocking up very soon!
It was so lovely to meet and mix with fellow bakers and to meet some of my lovely blog readers. Thanks to Ciaran for running the event, please do another one next year!
Below are some photos of my set up and my cupcakes, thanks to my lovely little sister and her friends for helping me all day!
I made the bunting using paint believe it or now. Yay for limited computer skills!
My niece was on hand to help (i.e. eat lots of frosting).
And some of the other lovely bakers cupcakes below! I can't remember who is who, if you see your cupcakes here and want a link added please contact me!
