Meet Kathleen Mudge and Betsy Long, Mother and Daughter Bakers!


Hello, everyone! My name is Kathleen Mudge. My daughter, and top-notch creative consultant, Betsy Long, and I will be bakers for our second year at Cupcake Camp Charleston.

We are traveling from Elizabeth City N.C. where Betsy is an English instructor at College of the Albemarle, and I am a freelance baker/candy maker. We recently participated in Cupcake CampDC to benefit the DC Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation. It was a great event. Washington, DC also offers the National Capital Area Cake Show, which is a must see for anyone interested in baking! Check it out at www.cakeshow.org.

Betsy and I love to travel, and aspire to return to Europe for Cupcake Camp Paris one day. We also look for bakeries and pastry shops in or near cities we happen to be visiting.  I'm not sure we'd have ever gone to Hoboken if Carlo's Bake Shop wasn't there...

Our town is small, but who knows, maybe we'll have our own Cupcake Camp EC someday!
