After last year’s 1st Annual Cupcake Love-in, our team looked back in amazement at all the support we received from our community! This year has been no exception! Once again we have the support from most of last year’s sponsors as well as many new ones!
We can’t think of a better place to throw a party than the Hotel Valley Ho, so we are thrilled to be returning for our 2nd year! Jesse Thompson, Jennifer Rueb, Kristin Heggli and the entire staff have been an absolute dream to work with. We think it’s the coolest place for a Love-in!
Returning sponsors Hickman’s Family Farms, Shamrock Farms, 3 Monkey’s Printing, Yelp Phoenix, Page.ly, Kerrygold Butter, Locals Only Phoenix, ABC Cake Decorating & Supply and Jared Blake Entertainment have been instrumental in the success of our event and didn’t hesitate to give us a YES to sponsoring our 2nd Annual event. A huge thanks to all of you!
