Cupcakes for Paws

From cupcakes to Capitol Hill, everyone is buzzing about the Fashion for Paws 7th Annual Runway on April 13, 2013 at the National Building Museum to benefit the Washington Humane Society (WHS).

This year’s event will honor Congressmen Jim Moran (D-Virginia) and John Campbell (R-California) with the 2013 Humane Hero Award, which recognizes individuals in media, politics and entertainment who have displayed a passion for animal welfare. Washingtonians can follow their example by picking up Fashion-for-Paws-inspired “pupcakes” at any DC-area Georgetown Cupcake location through April 13. 100% of proceeds will benefit WHS.

 

Sweet pandas

How ironic. The day we go to deliver panda cupcakes to the New Member of AOII at GMU… a baby panda is born at the National Zoo! What an awesome day it was. Our friends Sophie and Katherine at Georgetown Cupcake created the cutest cupcakes to celebrate our new girls. The panda is AOII’s mascot and made for a  really sweet treat. It was  great to see all the ladies on our old stomping grounds- the JC! I can’t even tell you how many hours I lost in that place.

My alum chum Elaina!

Congrats girls!

Halloween with the Cupcake Sisters

The Cupcakes:

We spent the afternoon decorating cupcakes with perhaps the popular dessert’s most famous faces.. Georgetown Cupcake sisters Sophie and Katherine. The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown hosted the family event in the new Fahrenheit Ballroom. The workshop was so easy that even a baby could do it. Okay.. she ate more frosting then frosted anything but she still had a blast. For info on future workshops visit the Ritz-Carlton’s website.  Save the Date- one of the sisters gets hitched! Tune in for the DC Cupcakes Wedding Special Friday November 11th on TLC.

Story behind Adora’s Costume:
Adora was dressed up as Kim Yuna. Who? You know Kim Yuna… the South Korean ice skater who won the Gold Medal at the Winter Olympics. Commentators have said she may be the best figure skater every to skate the sport.Well… Adora being a quarter Korean and my husband being a Kim Yu Na fan I thought it would be a fun surprise. Her outfit was complete with skates, bouquet and the hardware.

One *BIG* Birthday

You don’t get invites like this that often. It was perfect weather for a pachyderm birthday party. The Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus is in town and it was Sara was turning another year older. As part of the big surprise the Georgetown Cupcake gals Sophie & Katherine showed up with a special pachyderm safe cupcake for Sara and all her fellow elephant friends. Even with the cake in their face the elephants opted for the carrots and lettuce. What I would give for an appetite like that! Adora got a kick out of it despite the look on her face. I’ll have more on the party including a bunch of kiddos who got to decorate their own cupcake to eat as part of the circus celebration. The circus is at The Patriot Center through April 24th.
