bites of Georgetown Cupcake

We went to the Philippine Embassy last Monday to renew our passports. It was a very good day and since we are already in DC, we decided to visit the Georgetown cupcake flagship store. Well, instead of going to that store, we ended up going to their branch at Bethesda row.

A little background about Georgetown Cupcake:

It's a specialty cupcake store founded by two sisters, Katherine and Sophie, who gave up their corporate jobs for the love of baking. Their cupcakes was a huge hit and they garnered more admirers when they had their own shown in TLC called DC Cupcakes. DC Cupcakes was a good exposure for their store since it featured a lot of their gorgeous cupcake projects.

The store in Bethesda was smaller than the flagship store but what we are thankful for was the absence of a very long line of cupcake buyers. That doesn't mean though that it was not popular in this area. As a matter of fact, the store was packed with customers when we entered but at least it didn't extend up to the sidewalk just like in DC.

We ordered a dozen cupcakes ($29) and we had 2 of each of the following flavors:

1. Cherry Blossom - Classic madagascar bourbon vanilla cupcake baked with fresh cherries and covered with a vanilla cream cheese frosting and pink fondant flower

2. Toffee Crunch - Toffee cupcake with a toffee-infused vanilla frosting topped with crushed heath bar

3. Honey Banana - fresh banana cupcake topped with a vanilla cream cheese frosting and yellow fondant flower

4. Hummingbird - Georgetown cupcake's version of a southern classic - fresh pineapple, banana and pecan cupcake topped with a vanilla cream cheese frosting, chopped pecans and blue hummingbird fondant

5. Susan G. Komen signature cupcake - Classic madagascar bourbon vanilla cupcake with a vanilla buttercream frosting and a pink Susan G. Komen ribbon logo fondant decor.

6. Cinnamon - Cinnamon cupcake topped with a cinnamon buttercream frosting and gold heart fondant

We love their cupcakes and we'll surely try more of their other cupcake flavors!
