After watching a few episodes of DC Cupcakes on TLC, I was really excited when I heard that they were opening a new location in New York back in March because that meant that I'd be able to try them on my trip in May.
New Yorkers really love their cupcakes...they're everywhere!
$15 for a half dozen and $29 for a dozen
Clockwise from top left: Red Velvet, Lava Fudge, Chocolate
The Georgetown cupcakes were more cake heavy and dense than some of the other cupcakes I've had before. I really liked their cupcakes because they weren't too sweet. I am a HUGE fan of the Hummingbird cupcake which is a pineapple, banana and pecan cupcake topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting, chopped pecans and a blue fondant hummingbird on top. It was absolutely amazing! They should add it to their year-round menu.
Overall: I really like the cupcakes at Georgetown (especially the Hummingbird - too bad it's only available in May). I can't wait to try all the other flavours in the monthly calendar! Yum! (They really need to open a store in Toronto - We love cupcakes too!)
