Napa Valley Mustard Festival

The incredible weather coupled with the surplus of wine and food make Napa Valley a great place to live.  I experienced my first Mustard Festival over the weekend.  While this blog details my love for sweets, I love food of all kinds and it was no different here.   Local restaurants and wineries offered samples of delicious food and wine.  All in all, it was a perfect March day in Napa.  I hope I can attend this event next year too.

The festival took place in downtown Napa along the riverfront.

My favorite Bay Area cupcake shop, Kara’s Cupcakes, had their “KaraVan” at the event.  I had a meyer lemon mini cupcake, my new favorite flavor.  It pairs surprisingly well with Sauvignon Blanc.

I love the display case in the van.  The KaraVan had a constant line that day.

Cupcake Camp!

Cupcake Camp, really?!

Forget the horse camp I went to when I was 8.  Or French language immersion camp.  This sounds like my kind of camp!

The purpose of the camp is for cupcake lovers everywhere to unite and discuss recipes, new flavor ideas, and anything cupcake-related.  “Campers” can bring cupcakes to share or just show up and eat!  So far there are about 30 events planned worldwide.  Check the list and see if there’s a camp near you.  If not, you can plan one.   Don’t forget to invite me!
