Georgetown Cupcake...The Show!

That's right! Many of you probably know this by now, but for those of you who don't, check out this blog posting sent to me by the people over at NBC Universal:
"It's going to be a sweet Valentine's Day for the founders of Georgetown Cupcake. Not only are they going to be celebrating a second anniversary, but they are also about the become TV stars.
According to local blog DC Fab!, the show will be a "how to" for cupcake enthusiasts. The cameras will also go behind the curtain (or perhaps beneath the frosting) to reveal the success secrets of the booming business.
Sisters Katherine Kallinis and Sophie LaMontagne co-founded Georgetown Cupcake together almost two years ago. They recently moved into a new flagship location on M Street. They also started delivering deliciousness across the country, sending their cupcakes to nationwide stardom."
And there you have it! Stay tuned for more details.

A New Year...A New Cupcake Shop!

After a successful 2009, Charm City Cupcakes is celebrating the launch of the Mini Cupcake Factory Catering Company! With more than 65 Flavors, the Mini Cupcake Factory will serve the MD, DC and VA areas. I would list all the flavors here, but we'd be here for a longggg time. Some of the ones that stood out to me are Vanilla Praline, Vanilla Banana, Gourmet Pimlico, and Gourmet Turtle! Check out their website to view pictures of what they have to offer.
