I have been wanting to try the confections at Georgetown Cupcake for a few years, but could never get down to their flagship store to try them. A few weeks ago, I discovered they also had a location in Bethesda Row. I thought it would be a good idea to try them out before it got super crowded because of their new show on TLC.
I ordered 6 cupcakes. Each new bakery I try, I always get a vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream. Theirs was the best I've ever tasted. (My previous favorites were Sugar Sweet Sunshine in NYC and Sweet in Boson) The cupcake was a little heavy on the icing, but it was so good, I was glad for extra. The sprinkles were mini gobstoppers and were a step up from the everyday rainbow ones.
I also had a key lime, and bites of the coconut, pumpkin spice, and chocolate. All were very good. The pumpkin spice was a little too heavy on the maple in the icing.
Overall, I'm really glad this shop is just a short drive from my house (on a good traffic day). I can't wait to go back and try more flavors.
