This Week’s Creature Feature: Wild Birthday Celebration

DC Cupcakes gives you a sweet reason to Go Bananas

Eleven-year-old Kwame and 9-year-old Kojo celebrated their birthdays with cupcakes. As part of Georgetown Cupcakes’ reality show on TLC, DC Cupcakes, the sister-owned business, delivered a giant gorilla sculpture, comprised of cupcakes, to the National Zoo where the two male western lowland gorillas were celebrating their big days.
    Sadly, gorillas can’t get the real sweet treat, so zookeepers gave them an approximation of Georgetown Cupcakes’ red velvet sweet — bananas, primate biscuits, unflavored gelatin and water.
    For a more appetizing way to celebrate the primates’ birthdays, venture to Georgetown Cupcakes, where Gone Bananas, a honey-banana-flavored confectionary honors the two apes. Order the special treat thru March 4 and Georgetown Cupcakes will donate the proceeds to the National Zoo’s conservation programs.
