Obama's Mystery Birthday Cupcakes

aaHA! Looks like the cupcakes that Obama gave to long-time White House Journalist Helen Thomas yesterday came from none other than Georgetown's Baked & Wired!

To celebrate their mutual birthday, Obama surprised Thomas with a plate of cupcakes from Baked & Wired while leading the press in singing “Happy Birthday." Obama also reportedly ordered one of B&W's famous pies (Pecan Pie) for himself to enjoy later on. I haven't tried the Pecan Pie, but I was able to sample some of the other pie flavors at the Washingtonian Magazine Best of Party last month and they were great!

And in completely random DC Cupcake news, the Washington Examiner reports that Madam Tussauds' threw the wax Obama, his wife Michelle, Bill and Hillary Clinton and George W. Bush an over-the-top birthday party in a balloon decorated “Oval Office.” An Obama-theme cupcake tower from Georgetown Cupcake — complete with presidential seals and birthday candles — was served to the party-hat wearing wax figures amid a sea of balloons and a nine-foot tall balloon column.
