Camp is tomorrow!

Hey all! We can't wait to see you all tomorrow at Camp! It's going to be our best, and busiest, year yet. Please be courteous to others as you move through the crowd. Bakers--please be mindful of all the bakers who'd like to display their cupcakes. Bakers, you can taste too! In fact, we hope you do!

The doors open to the public at 11. We're raffling off a $25 gift card to BAR, so make sure you get an admission ticket when you walk through. Also, CARRY-OUTS are NOT permitted. Please inform tasters of that if you see them loading up containers (or even carrying them around). They will be stopped at the door and be asked to leave the cupcakes or stay to eat them while they are at camp. (Our police will be out in full force!)

We want everyone to have an opportunity to enjoy cupcakes in a free and open environment. The event is from 11-1. We encourage you to stay and have some tasty pizza at BAR, they will be open for lunch! Please know that there is a maximum capacity on the rooms where cupcakecamp will be held, so we may hold a line at the door so we don't get too packed. Crowd control is a good thing!

Thanks for joining us at camp this year. Please consider donating to the Closer to Free campaign, say 'hi' to Susan from Yale, as well as Meghan-- our ticket Goddess, Alexa the donation jar princess, Kevin--our studly t-shirt sales hunk, and Kelli & Jodie, the crazy women behind the scenes who brought this event to New Haven three years ago!

Camp is only a month away!

We are really looking forward to all of the cupcake craziness.
We've closed logo submissions for sponsors and bakers bringing more than 4 dozen cupcakes, but we will still list your name, so email us! If you're bringing 4 dozen or more cupcakes, we're considering you a sponsor. It's up to you to tell us if you prefer we list your business name or your individual name. ALSO--remember that no carry-outs are allowed, regardless of whether you're a baker or a taster. Please be courteous and leave with only leftover cupcakes you brought (should there be any, but we doubt it!) This allows everyone opportunity to sample cupcakes without bakers running out before the end of the event. AND while you're at BAR--you should stay for lunch! Their brews are exceptional and their pizza is amazing!

The Cupcake Tower

THANK YOU to  Joy and Jennifer from The Cupcake Tower for their generous donation of a small square cupcake tower. We are so thankful to The Cupcake Tower. Each year they have donated a tower, which is the top prize for the amateur baker at the cupcake contest. Please stop by their website and facebook page and let them know how great they are!!
