Press Coverage: Washington Post

Did you notice that CupcakeCampDC was mentioned in the Washington Post recently? The article says the following, asking an attendee their opinion of Georgetown Cupcake's long lines:
Washington is among the more than 60 global cities to host a Cupcake Camp, an informal, predominantly female gathering and competition with professional and amateur bakers and dozens of consumers to taste and judge.

The city’s second annual event took place in September at Local 16 along the U Street corridor. Between bites of peanut butter, salted caramel, chocolate raspberry and red velvet cupcakes, participant Helena Rusak of Washington reflected on her visit to the juggernaut that is Georgetown Cupcake.

Lured to the tourist attraction, Rusak said her motives were vaguely voyeuristic.
[...] 'Cupcakes have become totally mainstream,' says trendologist Nielsen. 'The novelty has worn off and they’ve become part of the landscape.'
