DC Bakery Review #2: Georgetown Cupcake

Line outside Georgetown Cupcake. Thank goodness it wasn't too cold!

Disclaimer (again):  Pics taken with phone, at night.  In two different places.

After our adventure at Sprinkles, Joelle and I headed to Georgetown Cupcakes…to wait in a really long line.  If you’re not familiar, these gals have a show on TLC and therefore have lines out their door that wrap around the block!  It actually wasn’t too bad when we arrived and I believe we ended up waiting about 45 minutes before we got inside.

Tried to get a good shot of the action...it was a madhouse.

Says it all.

The inside of the store was very cramped and definitely not made for crowds of people/fans.  There were only a couple of tables so we knew right away we’d wouldn’t be able to stay.  We picked out four different kinds of cupcakes and headed to the next bakery to eat them, hoping there would be adequate tables at the next place.

We didn’t have high hopes for this place.  Joelle had tried them once before and had not been too impressed and I had heard from other people that had been there that they weren’t great.  So we started trying them and the moment of truth–they weren’t bad!  I was honestly surprised!  The cakes were all moist and the frosting was pretty good, not the best I’ve ever had but definitely yummy.

Georgetown cupcake boxes...doesn't quite show how cute the pink boxes were.

Here are the flavors we tried and the description of each from Georgetown’s website:

Vanilla Birthday: Classic madagascar bourbon vanilla cupcake topped with a traditional sweet vanilla buttercream frosting and rainbow sprinkles.

Chocolate Mint Crunch: Valrhona chocolate cupcake baked with mint cookie pieces, topped with mint-infused whipped Callebaut chocolate frosting and mint cookie crumble.

Lemon Blossom: Light lemon cupcake with a lemon cream cheese frosting topped with a candied lemon.

Chocolate PB Chip: Valrhona chocolate cupcake baked with peanut butter chips topped with a peanut butter frosting and a chocolate ganache drizzle.

Lemon and PB Chocolate Chip...the peanut butter frosting had a little frosting "landslide" issue on the way to our next stop.

Oh I should mention these cupcakes were UNDER $3 each which was nice!  And a total surprise.

Ok, so who has been to Georgetown Cupcake??  I want to hear your review!
