Cupcake carnage in Paris

Well, Cat, I’d say your Cupcake Camp was a success down to the very last crumb, n’est pas??

At 4:30, the line was already creeping down the block.

It wasn’t much better inside.

Why? Ten euros and for a drink and as many! cupcakes! as! you! want! (Mercy. How many stomachaches out there tonight??)

The flavors ran the gamut: cookies and cream, fig, rose champagne, peanut butter, strawberry, chocolate fudge, watermelon wasabi (you heard me)…

Served up by the pros—Little Miss Cupcake, of course, plus Synie’s, Berko, Chloé S, Cupcakes & Co., Il Gelatario—as well as a gazillion amateurs.

Everyone could help themselves and then “camped” out in the Passage Vivienne.

Yep. That’s what I’d call cupcake carnage—bravo, Cat!

Amy, I am soooo sorry we didn't have a chance to meet! I was tied up upstairs while the contest judging was going on and missed out on a lot of the comings and goings of various folk. It sure was mayhem but glad to hear you enjoyed it.

I have to mention that the day would not have been as successful without the help of my amazing co-organizer, Bryan, and all of the talented bakers who prepared over 1600 cupcakes for the crowd!

The good news, besides all those cupcakes, was we raised just over 1000 euros for our charity. So thank you and everyone else for coming out and showing your support!

It was craziness, Cannoli - craziness!

Cat, I'm so sorry we didn't meet either. I kept making the rounds and didn't see you, but after awhile, I figured it would be better to meet another time.

Anyway - felicitations (to Bryan as well) on such a fun and successful event! xo
