CupcakesThe cupcake craze has swept the world faster than tales of Lyndsay Lohan’s latest rehab relapse.  Who could predict when Carrie and Miranda first visited Magnolia Bakery to indulge in cupcakes and gossip, it would start a petite cake renaissance that would reverberate to distant shores and neighborhood stores.  Even the Food Network is pushing the envelope of cupcake creations, raising them to pop icon status.  And really.. who among us can resist a tempting little cake topped high with sweet creamy goodness?  I mean how many calories could it possibly have????

Now comes word of a new movement in cupcake devotion – Cupcake Camps, a one day social gathering to share, eat and pay homage to these delightful gems. Cupcake Camps are being held across the globe, with most raising significant funds for a charitable cause.  Participants typically enjoy waves and waves of cupcake tastings and competitions.  What a hoot it would be to participate a Cupcake Camp during your travels!

In the spirit of French indulgences, I say, “Let Them Eat Cake” – mini ones!
