Something you should know about me: I love cupcakes. Like, a lot... A lot, a lot. It's bad.
The first time I had a cupcake from Georgetown Cupcake was last Halloween when Andrew's mom sent a box of them to his apartment. I couldn't believe how good they were.
The second time I had a Georgetown Cupcake was Valentine's Day when Andrew's mom sent yet another box to his apartment. She is a wonderful, wonderful lady.
You know how sometimes cupcakes are just cupcakes, no biggie? Georgetown Cupcakes are so different. They're perfect.
I've been by the store many times here in DC, but I've never gone inside. Nobody ever wants to stand in their long line to wait with me! I had some friends visit DC a few months ago and I was so excited thinking I'd finally get a chance to go there with them, but neither of them were interested. They saw the line and laughed. I was a little surprised and saddened by that, but then I remembered it's normal to not be obsessed with cupcakes the way I am. (Andrew often tells me that I have the diet of an Oompa Loompa. I can't help it!)
Anyway, Andrew's parents came to town last weekend and when I found out we were spending the day shopping in Georgetown, I immediately said, "I want a cupcake!" and Andrew's dad was all for it and said he'd be happy to wait in line with me. What a guy.
So, while Andrew and his mom shopped for clothes, his dad and I went on a mission. I was so excited. To our surprise, the line was really short; nothing compared to how long it usually is!
They all looked so good!
We both settled on the Salted Caramel cupcake. We also got a Red Velvet one for Andrew and a Coconut one for his mom. Yummmm.
It was amazing. Reeeeally amazing. Andrew asked me later on if it was everything I dreamed it would be and it definitely was!
Aside from the cupcakes, I really love Georgetown. It's such a cute area and it's fun to window shop. The buildings are so old; I'm sure they'd have a lot of stories to tell if they could talk! I'd love to live there, but one major downfall is that it's so far from the metro. (Oh, and it's also way out of my price range, haha.) Regardless, it's an awesome area and I really need to take advantage of it more often.
Have you ever been to Georgetown Cupcake? If not, you should visit if you're ever in DC!
You can also order yourself a box of deliciousness from their website! I did this for some friends in Wisconsin a few months ago and I was told the cupcakes arrived perfectly intact and were as moist and yummy as ever. How awesome is that?
