What’s going on tonight? The CupcakeCampYVR Field Guide:
Posted July 10, 2009on:
Hey campers! This is the definitive field guide to CupcakeCamp Vancouver. It’ll help you understand some of the process behind C3YVR:
When you arrive at our venue, make sure you head straight to Registration to get that sorted out. If you’ve brought cupcakes, we’ll need to fill out a card so that we can keep track of your cakes throughout the night. We’ll also be taking your tray (or carrier) and putting it into the staging area in the back of Workspace. When you’re ready to leave, please tell a volunteer who will help find your tray or carrier from the staging area.
Our venue is completely accessible to those with wheelchairs and little kids. However, we’d like to point out that we can’t babysit and small children must be supervised at all times. If you need to use the elevator, please tell our volunteer at the door and they will call the elevator for you.
The Big Event! Cupcakes, Contests and More…
After you’ve registered, it’s time to explore the venue! We’ll be bringing out the first round of cupcakes at 7:00 PM, and they’ll come out at set intervals throughout the night. We’ve got a number of fun activities planned, so be ready to volunteer yourself to participate in a contest or two! Even if you haven’t baked cakes, there will be opportunities to compete against your fellow campers.
The cupcake staging area is going to be marked off with tape. Please don’t go into this area. If you are a photographer and want to get a photo of the cupcakes, ask a volunteer to escort you.
We’d like to ask that people be considerate when the cupcakes come out, as we want to make sure that everyone gets a chance to sample cupcakes. Refreshments like milk, soy and water will be available. We only ask that you re-use your cups in consideration to the environment 🙂
Judging and Wrap-Up:
Cupcake Judging will start at 8:20 PM. At registration, you’ll have a chance to tell the volunteers that you want to compete in one of the contests. If you want to compete, we’ll set aside some of your cupcakes for the big event. There are 3 categories for judging- Best tasting, best decorated, and most creative. We have a great panel of judges, and they’ll decide (iron-chef style) who is the best of the best and worthy of our awesome prizes!
9:30 PM is closing time. To keep confusion at bay, we ask that bakers please try to collect your trays from the staging area starting around 9PM just so we don’t have a big rush at closing time.
We hope that everyone has a really good time at CupcakeCamp Vancouver. Be sure to take lots of pictures and tweet lots of tweets!
