Gardiner Cupcake Festival 

sl_cupcake.jpg

In 1796, Amelia Simmons alluded to the cupcake when she wrote a recipe calling for "a cake to be baked in small cups" in her American Cookery. The earliest known documentation of the use of the word cupcake can be traced back to Eliza Leslie's cookbook written in 1828. Started in 2009, the Gardiner Cupcake Festival offers over 30,000 different cupcakes to choose from. The event, held at Wright's Farm, will begin with the Gardiner 5K Cupcake Classic—a run winding through apple and pear orchards. There will also be food, live music, local vendors, and wine tasting. Cupcake enthusiasts can sign up beforehand to enter the amateur cupcake contest, which holds categories for the best-tasting chocolate cupcake, the best-tasting candy-bar-inspired cupcake, the best animal-decorated cupcake, and the best Star Wars-themed cupcake. Among the vendors will be Woodstock's Peace, Love, and Cupcakes, Deising's Bakery from Kingston, Kupcake Kouture from New Jersey, and many others. This event will take place on Saturday, May 14, from 12 to 6pm at Wright's Farm in Gardiner.
