Free Cupcakes: Cupcake Camp Boston 2011

12 Apr
 One of my best friends/roommates has to do this huge project on bakeries. Sounds weird, I know, but there is a lot more that goes into it than we all know. Anyway, she (well her group because she has class) is going to this thing that she stumbled upon a few weeks ago. It is called Cupcake Camp Boston 2011. How freakin’ cool does that sounds?!

Cupcake Camp Boston is April 13th, so tomorrow. It is at 7 p.m. at The Center for Arts at the Armory at 191 Highland Ave. in Somerville. So what is Cupcake Camp you ask? Basically, it is a gathering of bakers, chefs, wannabe bakers and wannabe chefs all giving out cupcakes to you. For free. Yup, that’s right, for free. Honestly, you show up, you can give a suggested donation but you don’t have to and you eat cupcakes. As many as you want.

Also, if you are one of those people who love baking and want to participate, or you want to get noticed, you can fill out a registration form and bring your own cupcakes to give away. That form, and a lot of other information including interviews with bakers and a list of bakeries participating, can be found on Cupcake Camp Boston’s blog.

I have never been and won’t be able to go this year (stupid class) but this sounds amazing. And yummy. Let me know if any of you check it out, and make sure you eat a cupcake for me!

How to get to Cupcake Camp, The Center for Arts at the Armory: This truly depends on where you are coming from. It looks like the easiest way would be to take the Red Line to Davis Square. From there you can take the 90 bus or the 88 bus toward Lechemere (about 4 minute ride) or you could walk if it is nice out. Also, you could take the Green Line to Lechemere and then the 88 bus. I would Google Map it.
