Cupcake Love-In 2012: So Many Cupcakes, So Little Time

Pie is so last week (no really, check out the photos from last weekend's Pie Social), leaving this weekend's dining schedule open for the biggest cupcake event of the year. Hundreds came out to the third annual Cupcake Love-In at the Hotel Valley Ho to participate in a frosted free-for-all with treats from 16 local vendors.

No tasting tickets this year meant loading up your plate or cup or napkin or just your bare hands with mountains of tiny cakes - it also meant that most bakers ran out long before the event was scheduled to end. Shortage or not, judging by the screaming children and general all-around happiness, this year's event was another success.
