Cupcake place for a shower

jackcyn Feb 25, 2011 06:08 AM

Hi there. My girlfriend loves cupcakes. And she is getting married this spring. I'd like to throw her a nontraditional shower, something more interactive and fun. Does anyone know of a cupcake store / bakery, that would host about 20 ladies and do a cooking demo or an interactive decorating day? Thanks!

    Georgetown Cupcake might do this type of thing.

    Also my friends own a baking company called Grassroots Gourmet. Their cakes are DELICIOUS! I bet they could do something like this (although they would likely need to hold it at someone's house since they don't currently have a store front): http://grassrootsgourmet.org/

        BakeshopDC in Arlington might be open to that kind of thing. They seem very relaxed and good-natured in there. I finally sampled their wares last weekend and was impressed by their various chocolate-peanut butter cookies and nice high-quality cake in the cupcake.
