When: Sat., Aug. 15, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. 2009
Organizers have found a sure fire way to coax out the sweet-toothed community for a fun day of cupcake activities, entertainment and an awards ceremony. While guests snack on creatively made little cakes, they enjoy live music and can check out what's happening on the other side of the globe during a live video feed from a CupcakeCamp event held simultaneously in Belfast, Ireland. Other entertainment includes a performance by students from Kids Are Special People daycare, a lesson in the Cupcake Dance, magician Matt McCarter, balloon twisting and lemonade stand. The event is a deliciously creative fundraiser for the Treasure Valley Institute for Children's Arts. Interested bakers can register by Aug. 7 for the chance to present one dozen of their cupcakes for display and to be devoured. Bakers also have the chance to win an award based on presentation and taste with a different categories based on best tasting, best visual, youth and honorary mention cupcakes.
