Sweet Surprise

Several months ago my girls discovered a show on TLC (aka – Netflix) called “DC Cupcakes.”

They are a little obsessed with this show lately – as in, they have to watch at least one episode a day. It’s a reality show about two sisters who quit their corporate jobs to follow their dreams and start a cupcake business called Georgetown Cupcake. Their cupcakes look ahhhmazing and business is booming. In every episode there are hoards of people waiting in line to buy cupcakes. I am the kind of person who believes that nothing is important enough to wait in long lines for…BUT, cupcakes? Maybe. Definitely maybe. Okay, yes. Always. As long as I can have some coffee while I’m waiting.

My six-year-old is a major foodie and in addition to watching this show she also loves watching cooking shows and anything that has to do with food in general. It’s kinda cute but sometimes I worry what will happen when her metabolism slows down. :/ But in the meantime she cooks with me, salivates while watching cupcake shows and eats us out of house and home.

When Ryan found out on a recent episode that Georgetown Cupcakes over-nights their delicious cupcakes anywhere in the US, he decided to surprise the girls with a dozen cupcakes. I got to have fun picking out some of the unique flavors and picked out Toffee Crunch for myself. Here are some of the yum-yums…

The cupcakes came today and the minute Cammie saw the box she started screaming, “DC CUPCAKES!! THAT IS FROM DC CUPCAKES!!”

The girls recognized the box and knew what was inside. It was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

This was the one Cammie chose for her first one:

…equally mouth-watering.

I don’t think I have to tell you that the girls LOVED this special surprise. I think these pictures and especially the video will speak for itself as to how much they enjoyed the cupcakes that were flown in from their favorite show, just for them!

Thank You, Daddy!

Last Bite

This video was taken right after Cammie had finished her cupcake…if you can’t tell she is screaming, “I just had a DC Cupcake!!!”

Here is the link to their website if you would like to have a little bite of heaven shipped to you –  Georgetown Cupcake. You are welcome.
