There are quite a few CCers going and I was going to refer you to a couple of different forum threads but they're gone now icon_cry.gif I am going... I'm from AZ and feel like this will be a great opportunity to attend classes by top quality instructors all in one place. I'm a frequent visitor to LV so I'll be staying at a resort that will comp my rooms and allow me to take the family on a mini vacation. I think if you can swing it you should consider going...it's only held every two years.

Does anyone know if you have to be a member of the California Cake Club to go? There are a couple of us that would love to go but are not a member of California. Please let me know.

You do not have to be a member but you get a discounted registration rate if you are.

I joined and am in MI so I cannot attend their meetings but it is nice to get their bi-monthly email newsletter and it is only $20/year. I think you will make that up in your Cake Camp registration discount anyway (or almost do).

www.cacakeclub.org for more details...

You do have to be a member to attend - this is stated on the first page of the site. Its a simple online sign-up.

There is also a $80 registration fee you need to pay.

The process they set up for registration is straightfoward and done on the website.

I have gone to Cake Camp before and it is great. It's a great opportunity to have so many great cake artists in one place and most of the classes are hands on so you really get your money's worth. The best part is being with so many cake people who love to talk about cake. You will gain so much information just chatting with everyone and everyone is so nice.
Being in Vegas does not have to be expensive. Besides camp just visiting all the hotels is great. It's like Disneyland for adults.
Have fun and hope to see you all there,
Lori V.

I went to the last cake camp. All but one of my classes was terrific. The dinner was a lot of fun and I met some great people, who I have remained friends with. Well worth the $$. I'm going this year. Am especially looking forward to taking a painting on cakes class from Norm Davis. (I'm also taking a class from Toba Garrett on brush enbroidery). YAHOO!!!

You gotta be kidding me!!!
I just came back from a week vacation in Vegas!!!

I guess I will have to wait until next year for this camp, I'm very interested in many of the classes and they're so cheap!

And after class there are so many things to do in Vegas! I had the best vacation ever!

Unfortunately you'll have to wait two years. The Cake Camp and Cake Cruise are done every two years, not annually. Maybe you can do the cake cruise in December. That would have been my first choice but since it's so close to the holidays there's no way I can get away. If my DH doesn't see his family, or more precisely, if they don't see him, it's a problem. We actually spent Christmas with my aunt, uncle and cousins two years ago (the first holiday away from his side) and he still heard from his father about how that wasn't right. P.S. We'll be married 15 years this May!!! I only have aunts, uncles and cousins since I'm an only child and my mother and grandparents passed on and I don't know my father - his side is much more important (they think, his parents, brother, sisters and neice and nephew!).

Sorry for the digression, but sometimes it feels good to be able to complain about these things!

Well, you are in luck... Cake Camp will be held in 2009, in Las Vegas again; and yes, this is a first. It was decided not to have Cake Camp in 2010 because of ICES Convention being held in San Diego that year..

Cool! Laura, thanks for that piece of information. So what about the Cruise then? Guess that won't be affected, huh?

By the way, for all those going, are we still doing the pink ribbon as a way to recognize all fellow CCer's?
