Cupcake Camp LA: Count Me In

My name is Mollie, and I have a problem. I’m addicted to frosting. My favorite is cream cheese, but really, any frosting will do. I love the texture, the taste, the way it melts in your mouth…man, I’m getting cravings just thinking about it. Of course, my status as a frosting fiend also translates to a deep and abiding love of cupcakes. And, when you combine those things with the opportunity to help raise money for charity and support Bakespace — a website I absolutely adore — you get one tasty treat indeed.

Which is why I’ll be attending Cupcake Camp LA, a charity event sponsored by the aforementioned Bakespace to raise money for organizations like Angel Acres Horse Rescue, InvisiblePeople.TV and American Tortoise Rescue. For just $15 (and $5 for any kids under 5 I want to commandeer to come with me), I’ll get to taste unique cupcake creations from LA’s best bakers. And, I’ll get to do it knowing the calories don’t count, because the proceeds are going to charity. Or at least, that’s what I’ll be telling myself.

Join me at Cupcake Camp LA on November 20 by purchasing tickets here. See you there! (Just don’t try to get in the way of me + my cream cheese frosting).

  1. Mollie – thanks so much for the awesome write up! You rock! We’ll be adding this to our “in the news” section in the next day or two. Thanks…

    Maryannewendt – We hear you… We attended the Boston and IE Cupcake Camps and learned a lot. Cupcake Camp IE did a very smart and thoughtful thing.. they supplied donated cupcake carriers for everyone (4 packs!) so you didn’t have to worry about carrying your cupcakes around as you selected. Also, they weren’t very bulky & very easy to hold.

    I literally just got off the phone with Lindar Corp, the company that donated the carriers – what a awesome company. They are donating to our event too! If there was a way to reach through the phone and hug someone… I would have done it. πŸ™‚

    But I agree.. it’s no fun when others bring carriers and you don’t. We’re not allowing any outside containers and will be supplying each person with one. πŸ™‚

    I hope that helps! πŸ™‚ Come to the LA event! We’d love to have you!

  2. Mollie when I went to Cupcake Camp OC I saw people showing up with big plastic containers, even cupcake carrying cases with handles. These were some serious cupcake fans in attendance. That was my first cupcake event, so I showed up empty handed. I really regret not having a container to take some goodies home in. Instead, I stuffed my face and enjoyed as many cupcakes as I could while I was there. Ha ha!! Have fun!!!
