The DC/Metro Cupcake Group

I recently combined my love for cupcakes and socializing by starting the DC/Metro Cupcake Group! I was inspired by the success of the NYC Meetup Group hosted by the lovely Nichelle of Cupcakes Take the Cake. The group has only been open for 3 days and so far we’ve got 14 members! 3 days, 14 members…growing pretty fast!

Our first meetup is Sunday, June 22, 2008 at 2:00pm. I thought Baked & Wired in Georgetown would be a great place to go. Realizing DC’s obsession with cupcakes, Baked & Wired went from making a “couple dozen cupcakes a week to 100 a day,” according to owner Teresa Velazquez. In addition to their increased production, Velazquez upgraded the store to include an area with leather lounge chairs for hanging out. This will be a great spot for everyone to have the opportunity to meet eachother while enjoying some delicious cupcakes!

Some of their biggest hit flavors are Strawberry, Chocolate Cake, and Birthday Cake. All cupcakes are $3.25 each.

Check out the group at http://dessert.meetup.com/13/, and check out Baked & Wired at http://www.bakedandwired.com/. Be sure to stay tuned later this month for pictures and details of the meetup! I can't wait to meet everyone!
