I've been meaning to try Georgetown Cupcake since I moved to DC almost two months ago; however, the line is usually wrapped around the block and I never have the patience to wait.
It's hard not to admire the founders of the store - sisters Katherine Kallinis and Sophie LaMontagne. They have built a cupcake empire after leaving their corporate jobs (at the peak of the recession) to follow their passion for baking. In addition to their insanely popular store on M Street, they have a hit TV show on TLC and a book due out next month.
Now I can say that I am no longer a Georgetown Cupcake virgin. On Friday, my girlfriend Eleni came into town to celebrate her birthday. We forwent traditional birthday cake for two gourmet cupcakes both with cream cheese frosting (a must) - red velvet and coconut. I must admit, they were pretty perfect and well worth the wait. And in my personal opinion, better than their neighbors Sprinkles. There, I said it!
Oh, and one more thing. These photos were taken by Eleni with her new Panasonic Lumix advanced point and shoot camera. She is starting her own blog on fashion, food and fun. Photog pro in the making!
