Counting Down to Cupcake Camp

There’s less than a week left until Cupcake Camp Boston 2012. This year, there are two options to attend:

  • VIP attendance, $25 per ticket. VIP entrance gets you special entry into the event from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Purchase advance VIP tickets now.
  • General Admission, $5 per ticket. With this option, you are let in after 7 p.m. and this is only available at the door.

Admission is a bit different this year. There are a limited amount of advanced, VIP tickets. But, with this option – you get the first choice of all the cupcakes from the professional and amateur bakers.
