Cupcake camp: for adults

Johanna Gerrits gets the baking started in Halifax.

"CupcakeCamp is basically just bringing a city community together with the love of cupcakes!" says Johanna Gerrits, the organizer of this Sunday's cupcake gathering. And who doesn't love cupcakes? If you go to, you'll discover that the CupcakeCamp phenomenon is an international one, and Gerrits is simply getting the Halifax baking started. Email to let Gerrits know you're coming, bring some cupcakes (made or bought) and a suggested donation of $5 or $10 for the Canadian Cancer Society---"in honour of a friend who's duking it out with cancer"---and you're set for CupcakeCamp. Asked what she's going to whip up, Gerrits gives a delicious list. "I'm gonna do my Mexican hot chocolate, and I'm going to try and create a nanaimo bar cupcake," she muses. "I'm making probably five-dozen cupcakes!" There will be gluten-free options for those who want them.
