Now that National Doughnut Day is over, it's time for cupcakes to get some sweet recognition. Instead of a day, however, these treats are getting an entire weekend devoted to their yummy-ness.

The Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, Florida is hosting the 2nd Annual Cupcake Lovers Weekend from July 15 and 16. That's right, the 2nd one.

The entire extravaganza will be centered around activities and events that are somehow connected to the confections. Those who participate can learn decorating tips, sip on cupcake-themed martinis, and check out the cupcake displays. The adventurous cupcake lover can even try a taste of a savory cupcake, which are "the latest trend"

Just as big of a draw to the area, the hotel is very close to Disney World, though it might not be advisable to fill up on sugar before hitting the rides.

The only question left, of course, is when the world will get a day devoted to the tastiness that is an oatmeal-chocolate-chip cookie. Or perhaps a double-fudge brownie celebration should be next. Maybe a gummybear holiday? Only time will tell.
