Washington, D.C. Edition: Georgetown Cupcake

Georgetown Cupcake

Many moons ago, I actually went to Georgetown Cupcake with a friend who insisted we go. It was before they were crazy popular -- and before I started blogging -- so I thought a revisit would be nice.

Georgetown Cupcake, a designer cupcake shop, always has a line wrapping around the corner due to their popularity.

During winter and spring of 2010, TLC filmed a reality series at Georgetown Cupcake, shadowing the sisters, telling their story, and aspects of running a small business. The six-part series, titled DC Cupcakes, aired on Fridays in July 2010.[9] The second season began on Friday, February 25, 2011 (Wikipedia)

Fortunately, I didn't have to wait too long before getting inside (in the AC!) to peruse all the tasty treats. They have regular items, daily items, and seasonal items.

I ended up choosing six cupcakes for $19. Steep, but when in Rome, right?

They got a little melty since it was a warm day, but mostly in tact once I got back to West Virginia.
