DC And Cupcakes!

19 Apr

On Saturday my parents and I visited DC. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t what we had hoped for, but we tried not to let the terrential downpour stand in our way. Before hitting up all the monuments, I thought it would be a great idea to show my mom Georgetown. This was her first trip to DC, so I figured where better to start then on preppy M street.

When we passed Georgetown Cupcake I didn’t plan on waiting in line, (yes there was even a 45 minute wait for cupcakes in the rain) but my mom wanted to taste the deliciousness for herself. We let my dad walk around and we waited patiently. Finally, we made it inside and ordered away. Since we were getting cupcakes for my brother and my friends, we left with an entire dozen.

Perfectly awaiting to be eaten in their big pink box were red velvet, chocolate and vanilla, coconut, key lime, and chocolate ganache cupcakes. One of my favorites is their red velvet, but a new one I experimented with and loved was a simple vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting. I had never had their chocolate frosting, so this was an awesome treat. It was just right–not too sweet or sugary, but had that autehntic rich chocolately taste.

These cupcakes definitely brightened up our rainy day. My mom absolutley loved her cupcakes and was impressed.

Rain, Rain Go Away!

5 Apr

As April settles in bringing lots of rainy days, it is hard to stay focused on the exciting days ahead. Easter (one of my favorite holidays) is at the end of the month followed by the busy final weeks of classes and then graduation. While graduating college is upsetting because we must part from the people we’ve spent every wakening moment with for the past four years, I am ready to start a new chapter (whatever it is) in my life.

Anyway, I am trying to see past the rain clouds and look for that single beacon of sunlight; however, it isn’t coming from the sky, so it obviously shines in the form of cupcakes. Each month Georgetown Cupcake bakes up special flavors. This month three additional cupcakes that surfaced the menu are Cherry Blossom, Hummingbird, and Easter.

Cherry Blossom (appropriate for DC’s Cherry Blossom Festival) is a classic vanilla cupcake baked with fresh cherries and topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting. The Humingbird cupcake is made with fresh banana, pineapple, and pecans and is topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting and chopped pecans. The Easter cupcake comes in either vanilla or chocolate and is frosted with green “grassy” icing and a special seasonal bunny fondant decoration.

While the Cherry Blososm and Hummingbird cupcakes resemble other Georgetown Cupcake’s, it is nice to see a little change up with the Easter cupcake. Not only is the frosting bright green,  but also the playful piped icing will definitely stand out among all the other signature swirled cupcakes. So if you’re in the DC or Bethesda area I would suggest picking up these special April cupcakes because they only come out once a year!

Georgetown Cupcakes!

20 Mar

After venturing to Georgetown Cupcake in February, my roommates and I needed another dose of the delicious cupcakes. The only problem–we didn’t want to wait on the lengthy line again. With the warmer weather we decided to change it up and go to the store at Bethesda Row.  Since we hadn’t been to Bethesda before we made a day of it.  The area is adorable with plenty of cute shops and restaurants. After lunch and covering most of the area it was time to embrace the typical Georgetown Cupcake line; however, unlike waiting almost an hour in DC (in the freezing cold) we were inside within ten minutes.  Carrot cake, red velvet, chocolate coconut, and strawberry cupcakes later we were out the door. Knowing how much quicker the line moves, the next time we have a craving we will definitely be heading back to Bethesda!
