I did hear a lot about Georgetown Cupcakes from my cousins who raved about it. Sharon promised to let me try them so I will know what all the fuss is about.
My cousin Sharon who works in DC is the expert on Georgetown Cupcakes. I think she has their phone number on speed dial. She regularly orders a box or two and has it delivered to her office.
The hardest part was choosing what to try first. I did what I had to do to try them all. I cut each cupcake into quarters so I can try each flavor. Wow! These cupcakes were incredibly moist and the frosting was delicious yet not too sweet. Now I understand why Georgetown Cupcakes are so popular that they even have their own tv show on TLC.
Two days later I returned to the store. This time I was prepared. Sharon already called in our order hours earlier. I was there simply to pick it up so I was able to bypass the line and go straight to the pick up counter.
These were the cupcake flavors for the day. They change flavors daily and have special monthly flavors.
This was our stash. My favorites here were the salted caramel cupcake, made with caramel cake base and salted caramel buttercream icing, and the ginger peach cupcake made with fresh peaches tasted like summer’s freshest harvest. The coconut cupcake was pretty good too. Aaarrgghhh they’re all good!
Am I a cupcake convert? Not really. I’d still choose a big, fat cookie over a cupcake any day. But I really enjoyed these cupcakes and don’t mind having them for dessert occasionally. Thanks Sha for all the cupcake love you gave us.
ps. I’ve tried Sprinkles cupcakes they were blech and way too sweet. Magnolia Bakery’s cupcakes were so, so dry. Nothing came close to Georgetown Cupcakes.
