Local Georgetown Cupcakes Bakes It Big On TLC DC Cupcakes

Our very own local DC cupcake shop, Georgetown Cupcakes are featured in TLC’s six part series, DC Cupcakes. This whole story is just awesome (and so are the cupcakes).

Both ladies, who are sisters, left high powered jobs and risked their financial health to start this small cupcake shop in Georgetown (Washington DC). Neither of them expected it to take off as it did and now they have a show on TLC. How cool is that? I love stories like this. It makes me feel like I CAN do anything. It just takes a LOT of really hard work and more hard work and a little more hard work (and a sister!)

Meeting DC Cupcakes

I had the pleasure of meeting the owner/sisters, Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis at the DC Metro Moms event in June.

DC Cupcakes ScrappinMIchele

I brought home a cupcake that I had decorated for my kids and all 4 kids immediately fell in love with Georgetown Cupcakes. I promised them I would take them down to the cupcakery (love that word, not mine, it was from TLC‘s press release) sometime.

IMG_1618Visiting DC Cupcakes

That sometime was this morning. We had heard that there were 1 hour waits for cupcakes, so I was hoping that if we got there early, we wouldn’t have to wait. There was a line, but it moved quickly. The bakery is small, so the line is probably always there. We waited 10 minutes to get our cupcakes.

We did have one disappointment. I had picked Friday to go because they make Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip cupcakes on Friday and I had heard a rumor (from one of the owner sisters at the DC Metro event) that the Chocolate Peanut Butter chip were really good and since I’m addicted to anything chocolate and peanut butter, I had to go. They were all out when we got there. We could have waited an hour for a fresh batch, but we had to get back home. I guess I will HAVE to go again.

If you are in DC or Bethesda, check out the Georgetown Cupcake shop. (address is 3301 M Street NW, Washington, DC 20007 (link is map). In Bethesda too (4834 Bethesda Avenue, Bethesda, MD 20814).

Watching DC Cupcakes

My 7 year old son wanted to know where the actors were that play the sisters and the boss chef. The kids and I watched DC Cupcakes again last night so it would all be fresh in our memories. Have you seen the show on TLC yet? If not, check it out. I’m a bit of a TLC junkie. It’s really neat to watch the show now and know exactly how the shop looks. Here is a video promo for the show:

You can watch DC Cupcakes on TLC on Friday, at 10 PM (ET/PT) tonight (July 23 & July 30). The first 2 episodes aired on July 16. Check your TV guide for reruns of the first 2 episodes. They are definitely worth watching!

Buying DC Cupcakes

The store is really efficient at getting everyone in and out in a hurry. Everyone was really pleasant and even though we were all in their faces with cameras and video cameras, they were very pleasant. My kids wanted to watch everything and they were more than happy to let them and even explain what was going on. It was such a pleasant atmosphere. A few pictures from our adventure (click on the pictures to see a larger one.) All pictures were taken by my 14 year old son.

Eating DC Cupcakes

Here is what I saw when I got home and opened the box to eat a cupcake. The kids could not wait to get home, so they had each had 1 cupcake while we were in the car. I heard: AWESOME Cupcakes, Yummy!, MMMMM!, Can we get more?, Can we have more than 2? They were definitely a hit.

Remembering DC Cupcakes

Of course I have video! You know me..I have video of everything…

    Note: My 15yo daughter came in while I was completing this contest entry. The first thing she said was, “I want cupcakes.” Then, when she saw your Twitter page, she noticed the opportunity to get free cupcakes by knowing the secret flavor of the day. She said, “Is there one around here?” Guess the family will be pretty happy if I win this prize!
