Blog and Tweet Boston is known for putting together unique events and experiences for bloggers in the city. We were thrilled to welcome a small section of their group to the BCAE on Friday, January 24th to join us for our Cupcakes & Cocktails (Part One) class! Led by Instructor Dustin Rennells, we whipped up 3 cupcakes which were paired with 3 delicious drinks. We baked, we drank, took lots of photos, and kicked off the weekend the right way!
