I love nothing more than lazy weekends that feature crossword puzzles, being near the water, and drinking more coffee than is good for me.
Well, this will not be one of those weekends.
On Friday, I’ll be judging at CupcakeCamp Vancouver. It’s one part sugar-tastic cupcake bonanza and one part fundraiser. Attendees bring, share and eat cupcakes for a suggested donation of $5 at the door. All proceeds go to the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre, which is a safe space for women and children in the downtown eastside.
Once I’ve recovered from sugar shock, I’m heading across the border for Sunday’s Seattle Luxury Chocolate Salon. It’s the second year for the Seattle event (others are held in San Francisco and Chicago). I’m imagining a trade show, but with chocolate. And that, my lovelies, should be awesome.
CupcakeCamp Vancouver sold out in 25 hours. Apparently, there is serious cupcake love in Vancouver.
You can still get advance tickets for the Seattle Luxury Chocolate Salon here, but only until the end of the day. Some tickets will also be available at the door.
