CupcakeCamp Boston!

Ok, so for anyone who follows me on Twitter and/or Facebook, you know I've been really excited about this one little thing called CupcakeCamp Boston. Well, it was last night and it. was. awesome! I can't even describe the storm of cupcake goodness/mayhem, so I will do what I do best and document my evening with pictures:

(photo thanks to @BostonTweet)
this was the line of like 300+ people waiting to get in,
luckily I registered early & got immediate access :)

people were encouraged to bring their own cupcakes to support the event, so this was my batch: red velvet cupcakes with 1 row of just cream cheese frosting, 1 row w/sprinkles,
& 1 row w/chocolate chips and/or peanut butter chips

everyone was taking their empty trays and filling them w/cupcakes to take home, so I picked out all of my favorites only to have the bouncers deny us all! haha. guess the lesson is that you should ask first before following the trend.
I ended up taking one bite out of each one before having to throw them away, what a waste :(

and so starts the documentation of me being a fatty, up close & personal!

guess what I'm picking off of my cupcake here...

if you guessed "a huge chocolate covered bacon strip" then you are correct my friend!
and hell yes I am excited about it :)

there is nothing that screams fattymess slob more than this pic.
cupcake residue all over my hands. I am truly an 8 year old child...

saving the best for last (technically this was the last cupcake I saw before heading out, but boy was it a sign of amazingness).
mini choco cupcake topped with a plain bacon strip. awesome.

And that, my friends, is just a portion of my recap on CupcakeCamp. Simply put, it was most definitely one of the greatest things that's ever come to this city. I'm just happy I wore a dress to this thing and avoided busting out of my pants. If you want a more professional look/a list of all the local bakeries who provided all the glory of this free event, check out the official blog & an incredible Flickr reel both by the wonderful creator of the event itself, Elizabeth Ginsburg (isn't she adorable?!).

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend, full of delicious eats & treats! :d


  1. Bacon with ... chocolate? Sounds so weird but I bet you my boyfriend would be all over those since he loves bacon!

    That sucks about the bouncer, but you look so adorable try to munch through them all before you left. Looks like a yummy time ... and you're making me hungry haha. Hope you have a great weekend too! :)

  2. Oh man, I missed this awesomeness! That bacon cupcake looks too good to pass up..hehehe!

  3. Whoa, what an event! This would have been close to my version of heaven, though something tells me I'd make myself ill from gorging all the cupcakes and I'd end up unconcious on the floor ;-) That bacon one sounds divine!

  4. That sounds like so much fun!! I would've loved to go to that! I can't believe you couldn't take any with you.. That IS a waste!

  5. holy crap, i can't believe there was bacon on that cupcake. hilarious.

    i'm trying to remember the palahniuk books i've read. i remember liking "choke" and thinking "rant" was really crazy, but good. it's been a while since i've read anything by him... i read like crazy, so will have to put him back into the rotation :)

    can you recommend anything?

  6. bleh. i hate cupcakes. i was gagging thinking about cupcakes and then you mentioned bacon. i'll take that without the frosting. thankyouverymuch. haha.
