Georgetown Cupcake Review!

As featured on TLC!



About:

Georgetown Cupcake was founded by sisters Katherine Kallinis and Sophie LaMontagne. Katherine and Sophie traded careers in fashion and private equity to pursue something a little sweeter — their passion for artful cupcakes. Both lifelong bakers, inspired by their grandmothers, Katherine and Sophie opened Georgetown Cupcake in February 2008 as DC’s first and only cupcakery. Watch Katherine and Sophie in action in DC CUPCAKES, their new TV series on TLC!

A beautiful Vanilla Cupcake!



Some awesome Chocolate Cupcakes!



After winning a dozen cupcakes from the Georgetown Cupcake Facebook page, I had to post the review on my food blog. I was soooooooo excited when I saw this pretty pink box arrive on my doorstep!



Here is what I saw when I opened the pretty pink box. Sheer awesomeness!! According to their website, the cupcakes are frozen before they’re shipped. Then they are packaged and wrapped in insulated bubble wrap.



I have to say that this cupcake, the Lemon Blossom is my all time favorite!
I will definately be ordering from Georgetown Cupcake in the very near future.


Be sure to tune in on Friday nights for new episodes of DC Cupcake on TLC.

Shenzhen Knives Review



When I was first contacted by Shenzhen Knives, I had never heard of the brand or of a Ceramic Knife before. I really didn't know what to think about them at first. I have always thought that unless you bought a $200.00 knife, that all knives were about the same. With Shenzhen Knives, I am proven wrong once again!



I was sent this 6 inch Ceramic Knife to try out and review. This first thing that I tried it on was a tomato. My goodness is all I have to say! It cut through the tomato like a hot knife through butter!

This 6 inch ceramic chef's knife is only $34.99.

The Ceramic Blade Advantage:

Shenzhen Ceramic Knives can be used by anyone for most slicing and cutting needs. These ceramic knives are made of an advanced ceramic called zirconia, the second hardest material known to man next to diamond. The material's properties make it particularly resistant to wear and tear, which means that a ceramic blade can hold its edge much longer than a steel blade without the need for re-sharpening as often as steel knives.




Right now you can get a 3-piece ceramic knife set for only $64.98.

This Set Includes:

6" ceramic chef's knife
4.8" ceramic slicing knife
3.2" ceramic paring knife
