I have to hand it to the folks at Georgetown Cupcake, they really know how to throw a party!
The new space, at 111 Mercer Street between Prince and Spring Streets in NYC's Soho is just gorgeous. Lots of pink, plenty of sparkles. And a crystal-covered stand mixer in the window. Pink, of course.
I had another job to rush to, so I only had time to say hi to the beautiful and sweet ladies of TLC's DC Cupcakes (the sisters behind Georgetown Cupcake)
Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis
...and try a mini cupcake:
Salted caramel. Delish.
Sophie and Katherine sent me off with a goodie bag, including a signed copy of their book, The Cupcake Diaries: Recipes and Memories from the Sisters of Georgetown Cupcake and a box of adorable NYC cupcakes.
The new shop opens this weekend, and I urge you all to go over and get your free cupcake. Or, you can join Cupcakes Take the Cake at our upcoming Meetup at the shop on Sunday, February 19, 2012 (details forthcoming).
You can see the entire set of images here. Thanks for inviting me, Georgetown Cupcake, I'll be back. And soon, at minimum for that salted caramel cupcake.
Oh, and congrats to Stephanie in California, who won our recent Georgetown Cupcake giveaway. She reports that her cupcakes arrived this morning in perfect condition, after being shipped cross-country. Excellent.
