I was late to Cupcake Camp NYC because (DUH) I forgot to print out my tickets! >_< After a not so quick printing session at Staples, I got to “Happy Ending” (I know, right?) about a half hour late (7:30) to find a line that went around the block! I was SO disappointed, because there were no cupcakes by the time I got inside! BUT, it was free, and I was late. I can’t really complain, but I think the people on line would’ve appreciated an announcement that the cupcakes were gone. (From what I heard, all those delicious cupcakes were gone by around 8:30!) T_T I saw people leaving with BOXES of cupcakes. No fair! and… can I have one? Haha.
But enough of my sob story!
I still walked around inside to snap some pictures, and it looked like everyone was having a good time, and everyone I talked to was SUPER friendly. People that bake, in my experience, are always so super nice! Guess it’s the innate hospitality!
A happy ending to this story is that Everything Cupcakes’ Audrey Criss won BEST IN SHOW! GOOOOO NJ! She baked about 60 regular size cupcakes and 120 minis of Red Velvet, Sweety Pie (Sweet Potato), and Tiramisu. She said all of her cupcakes were gone in about 15 minutes; devoured before she had time to arrange them to her liking on her table! Her winning cupcake was her Sweety Pie Cupcake with Whipped Cream Cheese frosting. Mouthwatering, huh? Also in Best in Design was awarded to Anny from Anny Cakes with her Asian designed green tea cupcakes!
