About

To celebrate a good friend of mine's birthday and the Cupcakecamp Seattle Event (and cupcake places around town on April 10th, 2010) sponsored by Bella Cupcake Couture, I'm baking cupcakes! I came across this event flyer while searching to see what was going on around Seattle. Yes, I was looking for a good place to dine. I was so excited especially after I found out this event is raising money for the Hope Heart Institute.
