Cupcake Camp a Sweet Benefit for Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation

Activities for July 25 event include a baking competition; registration under way

Fess Parker’s Doubletree Resort will open its doors from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 25 to cupcake enthusiasts for an event presented by Cupcakes for Cancer, a nonprofit founded by 13-year-old Blakely Colvin of Solvang.

Cupcake Camp will bring together local cupcake companies and the public to showcase their products as well as raise money for the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara.

Cupcake Camp is designed like a wine tasting — only with cupcakes. Participants bake cupcakes to bring — or just come to eat and help a good cause. Whole Foods Market will host a raffle and provide cold hormone-free milk to all attendees. Activities include cupcake tasting, a baking competition, a frosting bar, a cake auction, a Betsy Johnson fashion show, an amateur “Cute as a Cupcake” fashion and accessory parade, a Cupcake Craft Boutique, a children’s area, a cupcake-eating contest and more!

The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara ensures that children with cancer receive the undivided comfort of their parents during treatment and recovery by providing families with financial and emotional support. All funds raised during the Cupcake Camp will be donated directly to TBCF. The event is all about sharing and celebrating cupcakes, community and creativity. Charity never tasted sweeter!

The cupcake competition will include professional, amateur and youth levels. Categories include Best Santa Barbara Themed, Most Unique Ingredient and Best Tasting Cupcake of Cupcake Camp Santa Barbara 2010. Click here to sign up; baker spaces are limited.

The suggested donation for the event is $10 at the door or online.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
