While members might clash when it comes to politics, they can come together in the name of cupcakes. We hear that Sprinkles, which has a store in Georgetown, received 124 orders. Sixty-six requests came from Republicans gifting Democrats, while 58 Democrats wanted the frosting-topped goodies delivered to Republicans.

There is a cupcake mystery, however, because the dessert donors are being kept classified. Sprinkles contends that the Ethics Committees has requested that the company not name any names and out the undercover congressional cupcake gift-givers.
