When we were on our way to VA for the cake show we decided to stop in Georgetown to try a certain cupcake place. We placed our order ahead of time so that we wouldn't have to wait. Which I highly recommend everyone do. So I thought I would give a little review of what Jason and I thought of the cupcakes.
The store is super cute, but really packed with all the people inside. There was barely room to move around.
Here is the line to get in. It actually wasn't to bad considering we had seen it before last year, and it was wrapped around the building. Plus it was raining so I guess people don't like to stand in the rain.
So we decided on half a dozen cupcakes. The cupcakes are $2.50 a cupcake which I think is totally reasonable. We selected two salted caramel, one vanilla squared, one vanilla & chocolate, one coconut, and one cherry blossom. Each cupcake had a cute little design on it and the signature swirl.
The frosting was very good, and not to salty. The cake looked as though it had been drizzled with caramel. The cupcake had no filling but was fluffy and moist. This was by far the best cupcake of the bunch. It was also the best salted caramel that we have had from any bakery.
Overall, it was fun to taste test each cupcake. I think that it we are in the area next year I would like to try their regular vanilla buttercream instead of their cream cheese icing. The salted caramel was definitely the winner out of the batch. Stay tuned next week when I will give a review of Sprinkles cupcakes.
