caelacelb The National Cupcake Club was the name of the Duke East Term I Politics in Practice class of 2005. Mark Harvey is the teacher, and "Sexy" was the TA.

The name of the group was coined by Jennifer Good who suggested that they should call themselves the National Cupcake Club because "who doesn't love cupcakes?" To many TIPsters at Duke East, Mark Harvey became known commonly as "The Cupcake Man".

Their shirt offered an image of Che Guevara in conversation with Fidel Castro about cupcakes.
