Event Details

Cupcakes are the new trendy thing and as Georgetown is the leader of trends, there are no shortages of cupcakes! Besides being trendy, Georgetown is also the most historic neighborhood in Washingon, yet we would hardly think of cupcakes, as historic, however, they certainly are! 

The first mention of a cake produced in a cup goes all the way back to 1796, in the cookbook, "American Cookery" by Ameila Simmons. The first reference and recipe for an actual "cupcake" is printed in Eliza Leslie's 1828 cookbook, "Seventy-Five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes and Sweetmeats."

Join Dwane Starlin, member of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides, for a delightful walking tour of Georgetown- with history and cupcakes! The tour will begin at Dumbarton House and make stops at three cupcake shops in Georgetown- Baked & Wired, Sprinkles, and Georgetown Cupcake. The ticket price includes one cupcake from each shop. Please note, the tour will not return to Dumbarton House, but will end at Sprinkles.Comfy walking shoes a must! No pets, please.

Dumbarton House

Dumbarton House is a Federal period historic house museum, ca. 1800, whose historic structure and collection are preserved to educate the public about life in Washington, D.C, during the early years of the Republic.  The museum features an extensive collection of Federal-era decorative arts, paintings and furniture, and is the only fully-furnished Federal house museum open to the public in Washington.  Dumbarton House serves as the headquarters of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America (www.nscda.org), a women’s organization that actively promotes our national heritage through historic preservation, patriotic service and educational projects.  The life and times of Dumbarton House resident (1804-1813), Joseph Nourse, is the interpretive focus; Nourse served as first Register of the U.S. Treasury under six U.S. presidents and is known as “America’s First Civil Servant.” Dumbarton House is accredited by the American Association of Museums. The museum hosts a variety of public events and programs, as well as private rental events.  www.DumbartonHouse.org
