Paris has gone cupcake crazy, and I, for one, say ,”What took them so long?”. As the recent post on HiP Paris Blog shows, cupcake joints are popping up all over Paris. It seems like everyone and their maman is showing off their recipe for les cupcakes. And what better arena to strut their stuff than Cupcake Camp? CupcakeCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and eat cupcakes in an open environment. Over the past year or so, the camps have crisscrossed the globe, and finally is pitching its’ tent au bord de la Seine this summer. Spearheaded by American-Cupcakes-in-Paris Trailblazer Little Miss Cupcake, CupcakeCamp Paris will take place on Sunday, July 4 at Bistro Vivienne in the 2nd arrondissement. Bakers of every level are welcome — from the first-time baker to the weekend enthusiast, from the cupcake aficionado to the cupcakery owner — to bring their own cupcakes to share or just show up and eat! Plus, all proceeds (less expenses) from the 10€ entry fee will go to the charity Rebuilding Haiti Now. I have been an outspoken supporter of the cupcake since I was a child, and literally jumped at the opportunity to sponsor this event. It’s a great way to show off, pig out, and raise money and awareness for a good cause. Visit CupcakeCamp Paris’ Facebook page to register, and I hope to see you on July 4th!
