MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2010) - Cupcake Camp Montreal 2010 presented by ARES accessoires de cuisine has moved to Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth to accommodate the over 18,000 cupcakes pledged by Montrealers!! With over 18,000 cupcakes, we also need a lot of people to eat the cupcakes, so mark your calendars - on Sunday November 21, 2010 from 1-5 p.m. a $10 ticket at the door gets you three cupcakes, a gourmet coffee and lots of fun, all while you help raise funds for La Tablée des Chefs and Kids Help Phone,

"Montreal is showing some serious love for Cupcake Camp Montreal 2010. Not only did we change to a new venue to host our 18,000 cupcakes, but ARES accessoires de cuisine has become our new title sponsor," explained Organizer Eva Blue."We also have some new judges on our panel and a cool new FREE iPhone app from Innobec Technologies that will keep cupcake fans up to date on the camp."
