Also on June 14th, the next episode of “DC Cupcakes” will air. In an episode entitled “DC Cupcakes: Get Tanked,” Sophie & Katherine are invited to the Army’s 237th birthday bash and aim big to create a cupcake gift for the occasion. The sisters take on the challenge of building an enormous, one-ton cupcake tank – complete with a functioning cupcake cannon. Not only do they have to figure out how to make this massive tank, but also deliver it to the Pentagon in one piece for the Army Birthday celebration.

“We had a great time at the Pentagon building the cupcake tank – we are thrilled the tank was able to fire cupcakes,” said Berman & LaMontagne. “As DC-residents, the U.S. military is close to our hearts, and we are so pleased to thank our troops and their families with a sweet treat on the Army’s birthday.”

Be sure to watch the episode on Friday, June 14th at 7:00pm ET/PT on TLC. For service members, Veterans and military families, we hope that you are watching with your (free) Georgetown Cupcake in hand!
