Happy Birthday to Us!

Fabulous Fruit

Fancy Fruit Cake

It’s our birthday today and since our age doesn’t end with a big ‘0″, we see no need to make a big fuss…  We’d rather plan a dinner out with our families at a fabulous restaurant (hint to our husbands) where we can eat and drink what we want (and not count calories!)  And that includes dessert.  The hardest part will be deciding between something fruity,

Crazy for Cupcakes…

Where's the Crowd?

Oh, yes we are, and standing 42 minutes on the corner of 33rd and M Streets last week was no big deal – especially when we walked away with these beauties from Georgetown Cupcake.  So worth the wait!

Our Sweet Selection

A quick trip to DC last week had us seeing the sights, which of course included a stop at this now famous cupcakery – the first of its kind in our nation’s capital when it was founded in 2008.  Since then, Katherine and Sophie (sisters with a passion for the artful cupcake) have published a book of recipes, appeared on national TV (alongside Oprah and Martha Stewart!) and launched their own series on TLC!

You Can Make Your Own!

These sweet treats are as delicious as they appear, given their natural ingredients…

and beautiful packaging.  No need for a special occasion to indulge in one of these!

Pretty Packaging

Thank goodness the company had the foresight to open a store in Soho so we don’t have to travel too far to satisfy our urge… then again, we can order online from their website and save ourselves the wait!
