We visited lots of great museums, monuments and places of historical importance on our trip to Washington DC a few weeks ago. At the end of the day, after seeing all of those amazing places, it was all about the cupcakes for us! As I mentioned in yesterday’s post it was really, really hot. 108 degrees is hot! In spite of this, we still found some energy to check out the Georgetown Cupcake shop, home of the hit TLC show DC Cupcake. As we left the National Mall and drove a mile west the temperature went down eight degrees according to our car thermometer. Suddenly 100 degrees felt like air conditioning! We thought we could do anything! So we found a parking spot right on the Potomac River and took a hike up the hill to find the famous cupcake shop.
Here’s what we came home with. Yes, there are six cupcakes for seven people. That’s because our oldest daughter is severely allergic to nuts so she had to pass on the cupcake. She’s a huge fan of the show and was okay with visiting and getting a t-shirt instead of a cupcake. She loves to bake and uses the recipes from their cookbook all the time.
We did make it back to the hotel eventually and had a cupcake feast (and a nap if needed)!
