(pic above: a view of Charm City Cakes, Melrose, CA)Being an Elite Yelper definitely has it's perks! For those who don't know yet, "Yelp" is a popular website dedicated to everyday people to freely post reviews of restaurants, stores, and other places for others to read up. So being an Elite (had reviewed several places and was chosen to become part of this exclusive team), I was invited to attend a wonderful event hosted by Katie B., one of the Yelp Ambassador, to a private cupcake decorating session with her and a few other Yelpers. I'm very happy that one of my high school friends who is an Elite Yelper was invited too! We were provided cupcakes, coffee, and...DUFF GOLDMAN!
