I’ll be visiting you soon. I’m heading out to the Oregon Coast for some cupcake fun at the beginning of October – right before the book tour gets going.
I’m attending my first cupcake camp. Have you heard of these or been to one before? They sound super fun. It seems like they’re all structured a little different though, so I don’t know what to expect. Lots of cupcakes I hope. But there will be cake, too. No complaints there.
Actually, it’s called the Oregon Coast Cake & Cupcake Camp . Celeste of Celestial Cupcakes in Newport, Oregon is organizing it all. And boy is she ambitious. Lots of events over two days. They’ll be classes and socializing, crafts and book signings. And cakes and cupcakes of course. And the proceeds will go to a good cause. Even better.
Celeste wanted to pick a charity that meant something to the people attending. I told her my vote would be for something related to organ transplants. That clicked for her since a couple of her friends have received transplants and she knows others still waiting. So Donate Life NW  was chosen and I’m thrilled about it.
Live near the Oregon Coast? Want to come? Need more info?
