Sophie and Katherine of Georgetown Cupcake and TLC's DC Cupcakes share their favorite moments on film.
A Record-Breaking Cupcake
Baking a 2,594-pound cupcake to break the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Cupcake was one of the most memorable moments on DC Cupcakes for Katherine.
"Georgetown Cupcake now holds the title! The two of us actually had to climb inside the enormous cupcake pan to line it with parchment paper, and we had to use a forklift to move it into the oven," she explains.

A Cupcake Army Tank
"We donated a giant tank out of cupcakes for the Army’s birthday celebration," Katherine says. "It had to be delivered to the Pentagon by 7 a.m. and around 3 a.m. we found out that it wouldn’t fit into our delivery van. We had to take a chain saw to it in the middle of the night! Chain-sawing cupcakes in your kitchen at three in the morning is as crazy as it gets!"

A Cupcake Slot Machine
"Getting pulled over by the police while delivering a giant slot machine made out of cupcakes to a fancy hotel in DC for a casino-themed gala [was pretty out there]," says Sophie. "When we had to open up the trunk, the police officer thought that we were insane!"

Sophie remembers "climbing up to the top of a very tall ladder and frosting Katherine’s 10 foot tall cupcake tower in my floor length Monique Lhuillier gown."
"Not exactly kitchen attire!"

"On a recent episode of DC Cupcakes, Katherine deep-fried red velvet cupcakes as a fun idea for a county fair and while they tasted delicious, a deep-fried cupcake is not something we would ever add to our menu at Georgetown Cupcake," explains Sophie. "We’re very much purists in that sense."
