Thanks to the awesome folks at Random House and Ms. Jennifer Ross, I've got two copies of Jennifer's latest book, The Icing on the Cupcake, to give away to the first two cupcake totin' CupcakeCamp NYC attendees on April 9th! To translate, if you are one of the first two people to walk into Happy Ending on April 9th and you bring cupcakes (that you've registered beforehand), you'll get a copy of the book.
Sound good? Be sure to get to the event on time - 7 p.m. on April 9th at Happy Ending!

It's almost April, and you know what that means? It's time for CupcakeCamp NYC!
Now in its second year, CupcakeCamp NYC is bigger and better than ever. Featuring the NYC girls from Cupcakes Take the Cake, Chicago's very own Kathy "Metalcakes" Bejma and Austin's Jennifer Ross, CupcakeCamp NYC is taking over Happy Ending once again for 2.5 hours of cupcake awesomeness. And this year, we'll be featuring a complimentary cupcake inspired cocktail thanks to Happy Ending and our sponsor Buttercup Bake Shop.
To RSVP, it's simple: use the little green Register button to the left of this blog post to register you and your guests. THEN, if you plan on bringing cupcakes, e-mail us at email@example.com for an official baker registration form. You MUST register your cupcakes in order to participate. If you plan on simply showing up with your appetite (sans cupcakes), then all you need to do is RSVP here and you're done. Easy!
This is a 21+ event (it's at a bar, so apologies to the underage ground - this is a grown up shindig), and you will have to face a bouncer asking for your ID, so don't try to pull a fast one.
Any more questions? Shoot us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you on April 9th!

Based on a vintage World's Fair poster, I'd like to present the 2010 poster for CupcakeCamp NYC!
Extra special thanks to Brian Witte for taking on design duties again this year. Your work is always appreciated!

We're stoked to announce that Jennifer Ross, author of the soon to be released book The Icing on the Cupcake, will be attending this year's CupcakeCamp NYC!
The Icing on the Cupcake, is a multi-generational story about a woman builds a new life for herself after a broken engagement by opening a cupcake shop in New York City. Ross was inspired to write the book by her life-long passion for baking, which she developed in her grandmother's kitchen.
Along with her appearance at CupcakeCamp NYC, Ross is embaring on an eight city book tour this spring, hosting events at both bookstores and cupcake shops.
Ross will be signing copies of her new book at CupcakeCamp NYC and we'll have copies available for purchase. Also, we'll have a few to give away as prizes, so keep your eyes peeled for contest announcements!
This year, I'm happy to announce that the great folks over at Buttercup Bake Shop are one of CupcakeCamp NYC's official sponsors. Not only are they donating some of their yummy cupcakes, but they are also paying for an open bar during the first hour of the event (or whenever the tab runs out - whichever comes first). So, be sure to get to CupcakeCamp NYC on time and enjoy a free drink while raising a toast to Buttercup Bake Shop and their generosity.
Also, if you haven't checked it out already, swing on by Buttercup's revamped web site and their brand spanking new cupcake community - My Cupcake Day.
