Cupcake Picnic Coverage
Saturday was the Cupcakes Take the Cake Cupcake Picnic in Central Park. 100 people RSVP'd, but only about 40 showed up. Apparently the forecast of rain after 6PM was enough to scare more than half of the people into not coming out for an event that ended at 4PM. Wusses.
But the people who did show up were awesome, and there were lots of homemade and store bought cupcakes!
There were sangria cupcakes made by Nibbles by Nora. They were very good, with a very unique taste.
Cupcakes by Cupcake Cafe.
To the left: Lemon and blueberry cupcakes by Cupcakes by Joy.
Candy cupcakes! There were Milky Ways and another candy inside the cupcakes.
These are my apple pie cupcakes, in their usual mode of transport: a pizza box. The photo was taken by CTTC and can be found here. Ignore how ugly they look, I promise that they taste great ;)
And then, there was chocolate wine.
And jazz music too! A really nice coincidence. The band is called The Park Foundation, but that name will most likely change soon. The guy on the drums had four of my cupcakes, I was very flattered.
I also met a sweet couple from Long Island, the wife Jamie is a self-described cupcake enthusiast with a website- Creative Cupcake Recipes.
There were lots of extra cupcakes (way more than we had last year), so many of us were wandering around the park, convincing people to take some (how I met the band). One couple who took some of my cupcakes happened to be from London- my first international tasters! I was very happy they liked em.
There are some more pictures up on the CTTC Meetup group and on their Flickr. Sign up so you know about next years picnic!
