CBC Newfoundland and Labrador

Bake it baby

seen has had the privilege of eating some 'Ace of Cakes' style cakes lately (really should take some photos) but it's further evidence that baking has taken off big time in this province.

And then this came into our inbox, and we couldn't resist. Who can resist cupcakes?

"February 5th-7th, a number of local artists will display and offer for sale a visual feast at the St. John's Arts and Culture Centre, in *Get Baked: Art for your Sweet Tooth*, an art event inspired by the cupcake. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Marguerite's Place, a project of the St. John's Status of Women Council and the St. John's Women's Centre.

From paintings, photographs and collages to cupcakes made from recycled sweaters - even a seven-foot-tall cupcake tree - there'll be no shortage of delicious-looking desserts- no oven mitts required.

Artists participating in *Get Baked* include Alicia Simms, Tara Bradbury, Peggy Tremblett, Lori Ann Benson, Helen Davis, Nadine Hodder, Hilary Young-Laite and Cassandra Dodsworth, with contribution from Jared Reid, Jodi Rideout, Andrew Davis, Tval Soap and Skin Care and SGO Designer Glass."
