What is CupcakeCampLA?
CupcakeCampLA is an event built on the ‘Barcamp’ model, where people come together to share and eat cupcakes, and participate in cupcake tasting shenanigans! You don’t need to bake any cupcakes to participate, but it’s so much more fun when you do!

This event is not-for profit, and we will be donating money eared to our partner charities (see our charities).

How much does it cost to participate?
CupcakeCampLA tickets are $25 in advance for adult general admission and $50 for VIP. There are family discounts (4 tickets for $80). Tickets at the door are $50 for general admission and $100 for VIP.

How many cupcakes does that get me?
General Admission gets 10 tasting tickets
VIP Admission gets 20 tasting tickets

What do I need to bring with me to Cupcake Camp LA?
Just your ticket and your hunger. We will only have cupcakes at the event so if you need something to snack on between tastings (like crackers), stuff a few in your purse. You will not be allowed to bring any beverages into the venue.

How can I participate?
Bake Cupcakes, Volunteer or help spread the word!


I received an e-mail inviting me to participate. What do I do now?
Fill out our quick baker application and start planning your menu. One of our staff will be in touch with you shortly after you sign up!

How many cupcakes do I need to bring?
Amateurs – at least 300 full-sized cupcakes

Can I buy or sell cupcakes at the event?
Nope. CupcakeCamp is for people who want to bring cupcakes and eat them for free at the event. The admission ticket is a donation to our charity partners.

Can I really attend if I don’t bring cupcakes?
Yes! While bringing cupcakes is encouraged we need tasters like you to help us eat the cupcakes! Cupcake consumption is strictly voluntary. You can just come and support our cause!

Do I have to bake cupcakes or can I purchase cupcakes?
We need a large number of cupcakes so homemade or store bought are both accepted! You can only enter the contest with homemade cupcakes though!

Do we bake or decorate our cupcakes at the event?
No – your cupcakes should be ready to go at the event. However, there will be a kids zone for children of all ages (adults too) to decorate cupcakes for fun!

Will there be a Cupcake Competition?
Yes, we’ll have the attendees pick the cupcake they think is the most “LA” at each tasting. We’ll give each attendee a token to drop in your favorite baker’s bowl. The baker with the most tokens for each tasting wins a CupcakeCampLA trophy. You must bring your own “fishbowl” to participate. The two winners will each receive a trophy and prizes from our sponsors.
