Sweet Camping

This past weekend my sister convinced me to go to the annual Cupcake Camp that was held at Bar in downtown New Haven.  If you're not sure what Cupcake Camp is, it's where all cupcake bakers - with or without a store front - can bring in cupcakes and "camp out" for two hours to share their sweet concoctions with everyone.  It is also a chance to donate for a great cause.  This year everyone was encouraged to donate to Closer to Free which is for Cancer research and patient care.  People signed up as a baker or taster, and this year my sister, husband, and I were tasters.  Amidst all of the tasting in two hours, tasters had the chance to vote for their favorite cupcake.  However, there were also judges who voted on other several categories.  Nevertheless, all three of us were up to our ears with cupcakes even though we didn't get to taste or even see all of them since we arrived an hour after the start time.  My sister and I shared all of the cupcakes, and it was still way too much for us.  We all definitely got a sugar rush in less than an hour.  It was a nice event for all lovers of cupcakes and sweets, tasters, bakers, on-lookers, and supporters.  My sister, being the baker in the family wants us to join next years camp.  It's a plan!
