Sprinkles Georgetown!

Yes, the cupcake “revolution” is getting old, but this is the real deal… Sprinkles Cupcakes… the ORIGINAL cupcake bakery!  It’s arrived here in DC – dangerously down the street from the Haute Papier design studio… but not far enough that the walk down there will burn off the calories consumed by even one cupcake (as if I am actually able to have that kind of self-restraint!)! We were able to get a sneak peek and ridiculous amount of tasting earlier this week at a preview for business owners in Georgetown and we’re beyond smitten with the deliciousness of the cake!  It’s perfectly crumbly with so much more flavor than another cupcakes shop in Georgetown, whose name we’ll leave unmentioned, but irritates the heck out of my husband – if only because its customers have no sense of the difference between the street and sidewalk as they stand googlie-eyed taking pictures of the storefront.

We also got to meet Candace (the founder) and her husband, Charles.  Candace is just adorable – complete with cute little converse tennies with her chef’s jacket.  Welcome to DC Sprinkles!!


Incredible Proposal

Since so many of our clients are brides, we can't resist when we see something related to nuptials, especially when it brings on a flood of tears like Niagara Falls!  Bakerella (one of my favorite blogs of all time) created these little mini wedding cakes to help Rich (the now fiance of one of her avid readers) propose.  The story is amazing as are these incredible desserts.  Click away for the how to!4022874563_6fba19bc75_o4022874885_8afd766f47_o
