MONTREAL, Nov. 19 /CNW/ - Kids Help Phone is the charity of choice for the first ever Cupcake Camp Montreal on Sunday, November 22. This fun-fill event has some unique flavours that will surely please visitors' sweet tooth while also raising important funds for a children's charity.
Professional and amateur bakers from across the city will have cupcakes ready to sell with proceeds going to Kids Help Phone - Canada's only free, confidential and anonymous counselling and information service for kids and teens. Admission is $10 and attendees will receive three cupcakes and a coffee. Additional cupcakes are on sale for only $2 and there will be lots of different flavours and designs to choose from.
To inspire bakers and add to the fun, there will also be competitions to judge the best design and the best tasting cupcakes. Bakers have also been asked to show their pride in Montreal and create a cupcake that celebrates our great city. The most unique and silliest category is called "FailCake", which encourages participants to present their interpretation of 'the worse cupcake ever'!
