No visit to Washington D.C. would ever be complete without cupcakes! Normally upon arrival I immediately head off to Red Velvet for their upscale creations. However, this time I was visiting Georgetown and spotted Georgetown Cupcakes. Since it is my personal mission in life to sample cupcakes of all shapes and sizes, everywhere I go, I couldn't resist!
Upon entering, I read the signs that talked about Georgetown Cupcakes very own show on TLC starting July 16, at 10pm -- so I figured they had to be good. Then I checked out the flavors! They had several flavors I have never experienced - Cinnamon cake with Cinnamon frosting; Heath Bar cake with Heat Bar frosting; and Mint Cookies and Cream. The cakes were moist and loaded with more frosting than I can even describe. The frosting looked like bland, whipped frosting that I am not a fan of. However, looks can be very deceiving. The frosting had a stiffer, sugary texture -- and the frosting was more flavorful than first appeared. Perfection. Each and everyone was perfection.
While I should have ordered just one cupcake, it ends up that six cupcake creations ended up coming home with me -- or should I say leaving the bakery. How many made it in the car is another story!
