The founders of Georgetown Cupcake, stars of TLC’s DC Cupcakes and overall superstar sisters, Katherine Berman and Sophie LaMontagne, stopped by our offices for an afternoon treat! We asked them five of our burning questions. Read on to get the scoop.
From top left, clockwise: Editorial Assistant, Morgan Gibson, Associate Lifestyle Editor, Allyson Dickman, Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Berman.
1. What are your favorite new flavors?
Katherine: Lavender Earl Grey Teacake
Sophie: Chocolate Peanut Butter Twist
2. If you had to make a dessert that wasn’t a cupcake, what would you make?
Because of our Greek heritage, we’d probably make baklava or ravani cake. Those are a couple of our favorites.
3. How did you develop your signature swirl for the icing?
We really wanted something pretty, but not too girly. Elegant, but not understated. This swirl was something we thought would appeal to everyone!
4. Best tip for leftover cupcakes?
Turn them into a cupcake milkshake, or cut them up and layer them between ice cream or yogurt for a sweet parfait!
5. What are your most popular flavors?
Red Velvet is always the most popular flavor, then Salted Caramel usually comes in second. A lot of people go for flavors they wouldn’t make at home.
