Cupcake Camp II was on Sunday. I think I lost count of how many cupackes I consumed. It was certainly a lovely event to throw together to gather all cupcake lovers across the arrondissements of Paris (official Cupcake Lovers in Paris right here). The event definitely was a success, all proceeds were donated to Make A Wish Foundation France! You can read about the final notes right here. It was such a nice afternoon *cough un très beau temps*, and quite an amazing venue, Le Comptoir Générale, in the 10th. P.S. Marie behind Off We Bio won the prize “Best Fall Inspired” for her Apple, Nut & Maple Syrup Bio Cupcakes (see above) DELISH, and cheers for it being such a small small world.

Special thanks to Bryan, Nicolette and Cat for setting up this Sunday filled with delicious perfection!

You can check out more photos from Cupcake Camp on their Flickr. If you went, add yours!

And for side notes:

Have you seen these amazing photos by Andrew B. Myers? (via Design Work Life) I am totally obsessed with the Twister one. Talk about great colors.

I’m also drooling over these boots from Topshop.

Where are you shopping for your coats this season? I’ve seen some great ones at Urban Outfitters & Anthropologie.

Some fun facts about France right here by Lindsey (also the mastermind behind cookie cupcakes above via Lola’s Cookies).

The October summer only lasted through the weekend, now the gray skies are telling me that October is actually here.

    Those are some of the most beautiful cupcakes I have ever seen! And Madewell has a great selection of winter jackets – I just received the Promenade coat and cannot wait for the chilly weather to move into Denver.

    Oh my that was a beautiful day. I wanna go back to that book store too! I got so inspired after buying that book. I spent my afternoon yesterday at Kooka Boora reading it and making 8374897 notes, felt so great! We MUST go there soon btw.

    PS: I ate my last cupcake for breakfast, definitely made my day.

      They were DELICIOUS!

  8. October 6, 2011

    So many beautiful cupcakes *drools* mint icing and oreos are a famous combo and they taste so nice! :Dxx

  9. October 6, 2011

    They all look so incredibly delicious. The last picture looks as if there is some kind of filling around it- I just want to print it out so I can take a big bite of it.

  10. October 6, 2011

    Those are adorable! And they look so tasty too. Nice photos.

  11. October 6, 2011

    Cupcake Camp is the best idea ever. And the fact that it benefits the Make A Wish foundation only makes me love it more.

    • Meg #
      October 6, 2011

      Yes they did! Over 6000€ were made I believe! Check out Sugar Daze’s page on my blogroll for more!

Being a pastry chef, I am always looking for new, innovative ways to involve others in my craft and a Cupcake Camp would be perfect! Your blog is super cute and I love the french influence (check out my blog, Vive La Luxe :) I think we have a lot in common! Check it out and tell us what you think! Keep up the fantastic work.

    What lovely photos!
    Cat / SugarDaze, one of the organisers of Cupcake Camp Paris (yes, I believe there are other such camps elsewhere!) is a friend, and it was a joy to see someone I know mentioned in a Freshly Pressed post. She makes the most fabulous cupcakes in the world – but all of these look pretty delicious…

    • Meg #
      October 7, 2011

  59. October 7, 2011

    Wow, those cupcakes look too amazing – especially to eat but I want to eat them all! They look delicious and I love the mix of colors :) So vibrant! What a great idea this Cupcake Camp (even the name is enticing) and knowing the money goes to Make-A-Wish is even better! Thanks for sharing such lovely goodness with us and congrats on being Fresh! ;)

  60. October 7, 2011

  63. October 7, 2011

    Give me them NOW! I have a friend who makes excellent cupcakes however she’s back in the states and I’m in Germany where I see more Tortes and Cakes rather than cupcakes. I would LOVE to have one of those right about now!! :-)

    • Meg #

    What a brilliant idea and thanks for sharing it through such gorgeous pictures. I loved reading about what you got up to at the Cupcake Camp and I was drooling over those cupcakes.

  75. October 7, 2011

    Great cupcake art shown here, YUMMY! :)

  76. October 7, 2011

    Colors in cupcakes, I love it! Never really thought about all those bright colors before…what an interesting way to look at colors lol.

    Autumn + cupcakes–sign me up!

  77. October 7, 2011

    There’s a Cupcake Camp? That’s the best thing I’ve heard so far today!
    All of those look amazing!

  78. October 7, 2011

    These are exciting photos — I mean who doesn’t like a cupcake. But they all seem hazy somehow. Almost dirty. You might want to consider adding contrast to them when you edit your photos. Bringing up the black at the bottom a bit and bringing down the top ends of each color spectrum so that there are some actual highlights in the pictures. They will come out looking cleaner and more vibrant instead of looking a bit like dusty old slides. And food especially looks better with crisper contrast.

    Loved your blog. Currently in college and my professor said we had to leave a blog comment about any blog. I chose yours, hope you don’t mind! I like photography and baking so two intrest in one. Love the pictures. I want a cup cake now!! Thanks. Sara :)

  81. October 7, 2011

    this is the loveliest camp i’ve ever heard! hehe
    nice photos here ;))

  82. October 7, 2011

    I’m not sure which is better the cupcakes or the pictures of the cupcakes! Great work… I am envious.

  83. October 7, 2011

    AMAZING cupcakes! I’ve got to make 135 for my sister’s wedding next year. *Ohh the pressure. Wonderful inspiration thank you!

  84. October 7, 2011

    congratulations and great photos! i wonder if Cupcake Camp existed when i lived in Paris briefly? if so i definitely missed out! you have a new fan- keep up the good work : )

  85. October 7, 2011

    Not a cake fan (pie is my thing), but those all looked so beautiful! Passed the link on to a friend who also has a cupcake blog!

  86. October 7, 2011

    I looooove the photos, they are so sweet (and show how sweet the cupcakes will probably be!). And I also like how you edited your pics! :)

  92. October 7, 2011

    very pretty cupcakes you’ve got there! The colors and ultimately, the design is so appealing to the eye. Kudos!

  93. October 7, 2011

    As my sister said when she lent me the link to this post “This sounds like the kind of camp I’d want to attend.” I agree, what fab photos, and it looks like you guys had a great time!

  94. October 7, 2011

      October 9, 2011

      Unfortunately I don’t – they were made by tons of different shops and people- all together in one space to raise money for Make a Wish. Everyone has their own spice up for cupcakes. I did put a few links to come other sites which may have recipes.

  99. October 8, 2011

    Wonderful site! Thank you so much. I was just with my 93-year-old mother in southeast Kansas. We had celebration cupcakes, just the two of us, and just typical grocery store bakery cupcakes. I spruced them up with things from her assisted living apartment: toothpicks holding an earring, crayons like candles, and arranged them on colorful leaves from the lawn.
    It didn’t matter except to me–Mom can’t really see–but she loved eating cupcakes, licking the icing off her fingers, and laughing together. And that’s the true beauty of cupcakes.

  100. October 9, 2011

    Colours, decorations and cupcakes, oh my! They look so pretty and cute but too cute to eat :)

  101. October 9, 2011

    I love your photos!! Congrats!!

  102. October 10, 2011

    these cupcakes look so amazing! I need to go buy some for myself now….

  103. October 10, 2011

    makes me hungry!

    October 11, 2011

    love it! great work :D

  105. October 11, 2011

    I don’t even think I could eat them. Too pretty.

  106. October 12, 2011

    Beautiful! Pity I wasn’t there… But it is good (for the cupcakes) that I was not there! :D

  107. October 12, 2011

    It’s a good thing they don’t have Cupcake Camp in the United States or I’d weigh ten thousand pounds! It looks like a lot of delicious, mouthwatering fun. And for such a great cause, too. Now I think I’m going to have to run out to my kitchen and see what I have on hand to make something yummy! :)

  108. kat #
    October 19, 2011

    These are some of the beautiful gorgeous cupcakes I’ve ever seen in my life! I had no idea cupcakes had such a big following in Paris…I thought it was all about the macarons :). I remember when I was in Germany, the only place that sold cupcakes was inside a McDonalds in the Deutsche Bahn :)

  109. October 24, 2011

    sounds like a great event. wished there was cupcake camp here!
