Cupcake Camp Part II

Woah. Cupcake camp was crazy. I've never seen so many cupcake-crazed people in my life. Overall, it was a fun event that benefited a good cause. I think everyone who brought cupcakes deserves a pat on the back. Or at least a nice, firm handshake. New cupcakes were supposed to be brought out every 15 minutes, but things didn't go as planned. Hundreds of people showed up for this thing. Which is great because that means the Hope Heart Institute made over $5000! Bravo, cupcake-eaters.

After about two hours, the quantity of cupcakes is visually represented by the image below (chocolate cupcake with salted caramel frosting by cupcake royale, the same flavor I brought!):

mostly because people took this amount of cupcakes:

I'm not going to lie, it was pretty frightening. There was a line out the building, around the block. I honestly thought maybe 300 people would show up to this thing over the course of the whole day. Boy was I wrong.

The next couple pictures are of the cupcakes I brought, carrot with spiced cream cheese frosting and chocolate salted caramel. I had to be sneaky taking pictures because I didn't want to get yelled at or be accused of trying to cut in line to steal the cupcakes. Or seem like a stalker for randomly taking pictures of people. The pictures aren't really in focus at all because I had to be so sneaky, but you can see them on people's plates or in the cute pink boxes I brought them in.

In terms of attendance, cupcake camp seattle was a huge success. the event planners (bella cupcake couture) tried to remind people to only take 5-8 cupcakes, but people simply didn't listen. no one could have anticipated how many people would come and the hosts did the best that they could.

This picture is kind of random. I just thought it was cool that someone made a little milk sculpture.

fab photojournalistic report. you captured perfectly the beauty + the terror. ;) i can only imagine the plans for cupcake camp '11: armed guards, video surveillance, swiping of UPC codes to ensure people sample ONLY 7-8 cupcakes, etc... IMWTK when you will be able to look at another cc.
