CupcakeCamp Boston Recap

The sugar high has finally worn off and I wanted to share a recap of Cupcake Camp Boston. I had a lot of fun checking out all the cupcakes. The final numbers came in that we had ~470 people show up and over 3000 cupcakes! We had a line pretty late in the evening, but everyone did make it in the door and we had enough cupcakes for everyone. We even had a few leftover at the end of the night.


As I mentioned last week, I made my Oreo Cupcakes and my Mini Brownie Cookie Dough cupcakes. I decided to put little flags in the cupcakes so people would know what they were eating. On one side they said “Recipe at www.beantownbaker.com” and on the other side it said what kind of cupcake they were.

As the evening went on, quite a few people commented that it was a good idea. A lot of people were grabbing cupcakes then heading to the bar to share them with friends and it was difficult to remember where they got the cupcakes and what flavor they were. I’ll definitely be sure to do that next time again.


I also got feedback that making mini cupcakes was a great idea. Since people were tasting multiple cupcakes, they were cutting them in half or smaller. With the mini cupcakes, that wasn’t necessary.

I wanted to show this picture of my Oreo cupcakes before they got frosted. You can really see the huge chunks of Oreos in the cupcakes here.


I tried to take some pictures that night so I’d remember the evening. This was the line at around 6:45. By around 8:30 it was a couple blocks to the end.


I tried this Cadbury egg cupcake from Cupcake Fetish. They came all the way from Maine to be at CupcakeCamp! It was a basic vanilla cupcake with a mini Cadbury egg baked right in the middle. The filling in the egg in the middle got hard from the heat (I was expecting that since I’ve baked with Cadbury eggs before), so it was a bit difficult to eat, but the vanilla cupcake and frosting were great.


This guy had a whole tray of cupcakes and spilled them on the floor. It was a sad moment…


This was a chocolate lover cupcakes from Sugar Bakery. We didn’t go there last year on the Cupcake Crawl because they aren’t located near the T. I would have to say this was one of my favs of the night. Very chocolatey and tasty.


Here is the tray of goodies we tried. There were five of us taste sharing these cupcakes. A crowd pleaser was the Almond Joy cupcake shown at the top. It was also from Cupcake Fetish.


This was my last cupcake of the night (from Treat). I popped it in my mouth as I was driving away. It was so cute and I honestly don’t remember much about it except that the frosting was great.

    Hallie – I took half to a holiday potluck and the other have came to my in-laws with us for Christmas. They’re going on the cookie tray. The good thing is they keep well and go fast! And Hubby loves them so I have a hard time keeping his hand out of the bag of these guys.

    Hi, these look great and I want to try them as gifts this year. Thanks! One question, how do you “paint” the red coloring into the bag?

    Ali,

    Using a small paint brush, I dipped it into the food coloring and painted stripes on the inside of the pastry bag prior to filling it with the meringue.

    These as well as your Raspberry Meringue Cookies look wonderful. I wish I had come upon these before the holidays as they would have made a great addition to my cookie plate!
