Sweet treats. Everyone needs them once in a while. And who needs an excuse to have a cupcake?
Sisters Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne created Georgetown Cupcake, which recently opened on Newbury Street in Boston.
These girls know a thing or two about cupcakes. After all, they are the stars of the hit series DC Cupcakes on TLC, and best-selling authors of The Cupcake Diaries. Their new book, Sweet Celebrations will be released later this month.
Just a few years ago, the sisters traded careers in fashion and venture capital to follow their passion for baking and opened Georgetown Cupcake in Washington, DC. Since then, they have opened other locations in Bethesda, MD, New York City/SoHo, and one in Los Angeles planned this fall.
