Cupcake Camp Success!!!

This past Sunday we participated in the second annual Cupcake Camp Seattle, and we had so much fun! The event is put on by our sweet friend Carrie, owner of Bella Cupcake Couture, and all proceeds from the event went to Hope Heart Institute.

 Here are some of the lovely ladies from Bella Cupcake Couture! (Carrie on the right)
The event was held at The Canal in Ballard, and what a perfect day for it! The sun was out, and we even got to sit out on the patio for a bit while we absorbed some rays of sunshine!
Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE cause of death in America, and the people at Hope Heart are working towards making revolutionary medical advances towards treating, beating, and preventing heart disease. They are located in Bellevue, just like us! We were so happy to be a part of this event! Cupcakes AND supporting a good cause?!? Count us in!
 Before the event even started we were also on the news on King 5 for a spot about Cupcake Camp! Here is a link to their site with a spot including the people from Hope Heart. They also had us talking about our new cupcake the 'Papa B's Maple Bacon' cupcake named after my dad!
Cupcake Camp opened its doors at 12pm on Sunday, and a rush of people came through the doors! It was crazy! Lisa and I were both there, and Bella Cupcake Couture was nice enough to have 3 of their sweet interns helping us, and we still didn't have enough hands to help everyone! There were four lines of people coming up to our table, and it was fantastic! Over 800 people made it out to the event!
Here are some photos of our awesome cupcake table! We have so much fun setting these tables up, and this was one of my favorites!!

Jessie, the wonderful artist also known as Cakespy was there at the event, and we made a cake with artwork inspired by her art from the Cupcake Camp Poster! I was so happy that she liked the cake I made for her!!! Here is Jessie with the cake!
We brought hundreds of cupcakes with us to the event, but the show stoppers were our TWO AWARD WINNERS! In the 'Most Unique Ingredient' competition we entered our 'Thai One On' a Mango Sticky Rice cupcake! We got 1st place for it, and the judges were crazy about this cupcake!
We also placed 1st in the 'Best Seattle Themed Cupcake' with our awesome 'A Sweet View' a cupcake mountain with evergreen trees, a flying eagle, a bear, squirrel, and even fish swimming in a stream! How fun! We had the largest cupcake display on the table, and it looked like we had taken over!
 Here is silly me with my gold sugar paste award!
We had so many flavors with us on Sunday, and the ones that went the quickest were the S'mores (which we ran out of in about 15 minutes!) the mini banana splits, and the mini cookie dough cupcakes! We don't normally do those two flavors in minis, but seeing as how they are our favorites here, we had to try it out!
We also saw one of our favorite faces at cupcake camp, Barbie Hull was there photographing all the cupcake madness, and she got some AMAZING photographs! Check her website out HERE.

Well back to cupcake land to go make some fun Easter cupcakes! We are crazy busy for Easter which always makes the holidays so much fun! Its almost like being a kid in school and doing arts & crafts for holidays! LOVE IT!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!
