Having surrendered your waistline and thighs to the cupcake phenomenon a long time ago, you can spend all day getting intimate with frosting at Cupcake Camp Los Angeles, organized by local website Bakespace.com. Similar cupcake camps have popped up all over the country in the past two years. So now, it's every Angeleno's turn to sample such creative concoctions as chocolate Reese's peanut butter, pumpkin pie, pink velvet, strawberry lemonade and even vegan flavors courtesy of 10 pro and amateur bakers. The fundraiser — benefitingthe Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, American Tortoise Rescue and the homeless nonprofit InvisiblePeople.tv — includes two individual tastings, as well as a children's decorating section. These charities are counting on your calories.
