It's too bad that Our 10 Best Cupcakes in New York City ran last week, because the Big Apple is about to get a new cupcake shop. Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis, owners of the super-popular D.C.-based Georgetown Cupcake and stars of the TLC show DC Cupcakes, have decided to open a bakery branch in Soho at 111 Mercer Street. "In addition to our flagship location in Georgetown, we ship our cupcakes nationwide, and the number-one shipping destination for our cupcakes was New York City," explained Katherine. "We were also driving cupcakes up to New York City frequently for large parties and events. We had so many people asking us to bring Georgetown Cupcake to New York, so when we found the perfect spot in Soho, it was a very easy decision for us."
The shop will officially open on Saturday, February 11, and will feature the sisters' signature baked goods, including their most popular seller, the red velvet cupcake, and flavors including salted caramel and peanut butter fudge. The sweet treats will be baked daily on-site and packaged in the sisters' signature pink boxes.
And expect to see the new shop making a cameo on the television show. "We're filming a special episode on the construction and lead-up to the grand opening of our Soho shop so people can see what really goes into starting a bakery from scratch, and we'll also be filming new episodes of the show in Soho in the spring, as well as in D.C.," notes Katherine. Adds Sophie, "We're so excited to finally be opening in Soho! We can't wait to meet everyone and hope that everyone has a chance to visit and enjoys our cupcakes."
