Recap 2013/Bilan 2013 de Cupcake Camp Paris IV

It was a bright and blustery day when Cupcake Camp Paris rolled back into town for its 4th edition.  Inside Café A, the air was filled with scents of chocolate, rose, fleur d’oranger, peanut butter and much more as the bakers showed off their wares.  We are grateful to the 60+ bakers, both professionals and amateurs, who supported the event this year – they baked over 1800 cupcakes and helped us raise around 4,400 euros for the charity Make a Wish France.  Their creations were both tasty and beautiful. We couldn’t help but notice the look of contentment on the faces of many attendees who indulged in their purchases while walking around taking it all in.

We were delighted to see so many familiar faces – both bakers and attendees -- many of whom have been present for the 4 consecutive editions of Cupcake Camp Paris! 

This year, bakers had the choice of 4 different contests to compete in.  By 2PM, when the contests started, the tables were filled with dozens of culinary works of art while the crowd eagerly awaited the judges’ decisions.  Congratulations to the winners:  Caroline for her Roi Soleil cupcakes (Best Cupcake Inspired by a Famous Moment in French History), Sofiane for his Pumpkin cupcakes (Best Autumn-Themed Cupcake), Soria for her Istambul-inspired rose-pistachio cupcakes (Best Cupcake Made with the Most Exotic Ingredient) and Berenice for her ginger-honey-lemon cupcakes (Best Cupcake Made with a Root Vegetable).
