We are very excited to bring you news of the wonderful event ‘Cupcake Camp’ taking place on Saturday April 2nd 2011 2pm-5pm in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support. We were asked a few weeks ago to help with the last stages of planning this event and were happy to donate our services for this gteat cause. This is billed as the UKs second cupcake camp following the first in London last year and the line up looks really exciting for all the family.
Margaret Hitchman of Cake Heaven in Bournemouth has organised a family fun day filled with lots of exciting activities, exhibitors, music, arts and crafts, photography booth and of course plenty of cupcakes!
Dozens of top bakers from Dorset, Somerset and as far as London are coming together on a great big bake off to enter their cupcakes into 1 or 14 different categories which will be judged. There are categories for Royal Wedding cupcake, Best of British, one for the boys and many more – no doubt there will be lots of creative ways of bakers putting their own spin on the categories.
The most exciting news is that award winning cake designer Zoe Clark of The Cake Parlour, London will be coming along to help to judge the competitions and will be on hand during the day with her books which can be purchased and signed personally by Zoe. She will also be showing some of her fantastic cake designs and on hand to speak to with any of your cake questions. What a treat! Thank you to Zoe for agreeing to support this event and take part. For more information on Zoe Clark please see her www.zoeclarkcakes.com or her new shop The Cake Parlour www.thecakeparlour.com
With over 30 cupcake bakers to choose from you really will be spoilt for choice. Entrance to the event is free and you will be able to ‘buy’ vouchers for £1 in order to get your hands on some yummy cupcakes there is no maximum or minimum amount so why not spoil yourself and all the family. Mothers Day is the day after too so this is a great time to select your favourites, get them gift boxed and wrapped in some lovely ribbons all ready to give your Mum on Sunday!
