I know I’ve already written about Georgetown Cupcake, but I’m doing it again as I can’t stress enough how amazing this little bakery that started out on the corner of 33rd and M Street in Georgetown is… It’s become a ritual for Julien and I to go on my last day in DC whenever I come visit. It’s the one thing that will comfort me from saying goodbye to Georgetown and my loved one.
Don’t worry, it’s not the only time I go during my stay: I’ve grown addicted to their caramel latte. I seriously can’t drink regular coffee while in America, I need to spike it with sugar and full fat milk, otherwise what’s the point?
They are by far the best cupcakes I’ve ever had… Better than Crumbs & Doilies (which I rank quite high already), better than Baked and Wired, better than Humming Bird.
They’re the perfect size, the cake part is moist, the butter cream has been beaten to perfection. There are many cool flavours, which almost all have edible looking colours and are simply pretty to look at. I just like walking in the store sometimes and stare at those beauties. I’m in love with their signature swirls and decoration!
After trying multiple flavours, Julien and I now stick to our respective favourites: birthday cake with milk chocolate frosting, and salted caramel. I love the pink boxes. I love their cute shop. The only thing I could do without is the long queue outside, but that’s incompatible with all the elements I’ve just mentioned so I have to compromise.
Anyways, I hope the photos will make you long for cupcake dreams. They have shops in New York, Boston, LA, Bethesda, Atlanta and of course Georgetown: don’t miss out next time you go to America! I know I never do!
