Now that all the upstate New York ramp festivals are over, it’s time for dessert. The New Paltz Times has the skinny on this weekend’s celebration of cupcakes — apparently some 30,000 of them will be available, about 25,000 more than the population of the town!  Here are the details: “In addition to cupcakes from Wright’s Farms, the festival will showcase creations from Deising’s Bakery in Kingston, Sweet Maresa’s Upstate Cupcake and Moxie Cupcakes both from New Paltz, Bread Alone from Boiceville and Bettie’s Cakes from Saratoga Springs, who will be returning with its popular double-decker bus. Other food vendors include Full Moon Farms, Meadow View Farms, Pasquale Pizza, Twisted Pretzels and Aba’s Falafels. There will even be cupcake-flavored ice cream from Lazy Crazy Acres.”

There’s also a cupcake-eating contest, and an amateur cupcake-baking contest.

Wright’s Farm: 699 State Road 208, Gardiner. More info on their facebook page.
