Watch out Sprinkles. Move over Crumbs. There’s a new cupcake boutique in town. Sisters Sophie Kallinis La Montagne and Katherine Kallinis Berman are bringing their Georgetown Cupcake shop to Los Angeles – specifically to the fashionable stretch of Robertson Blvd. between 3rd Street and Beverly. The sisters and their cupcakery have become well known as stars of the TLC show, DC Cupcakes, and this is their first store west of the Mississippi.

I had the pleasure to attend a pre-opening tasting event with my daughter (and aspiring baker). We maneuvered our way through the folks packed into the simple but well-appointed store/bakery so we sample a number of mini-cupcakes that came in a variety of tasty and inventive flavors. Georgetown Cupcake boasts a repertoire of around 100 types of cupcakes with 18 typically available daily.

Among the flavors we got to taste, my favorites included the chocolate coconut and the salted caramel while my young assistant enjoyed the citrus flavors (lemon and key lemon) as well as the red velvet. One touch that she liked was the little candied toppings (like a candy lemon slice on the lemon cupcake).

Opening day is Saturday November 17 around noon, and as a special sweet treat they will be serving up one free cupcake per customer – while supplies last. See if you can eat just one.
