A Trip to Georgetown Cupcakes

The display at Georgetown Cupcakes is downright mouthwatering.

If you’re looking for instant gratification, Georgetown Cupcakes is not the place for you. It’s delicious, don’t get me wrong. I scarfed down two cupcakes in almost no time at all.

I bought a mint cookies & cream cupcake, a peanut butter fudge cupcake, and a chocolate & vanilla cupcake which, woefully, did not survive long enough to be in the picture.

The thing is, you’ll have to be willing to wait for your sugar fix. The line was about a half hour long when we got there. Being there with friends, time passed quicker, but I wouldn’t recommend flying solo. It’d get frustrating fast. Fortunately, the hardworking employees were kind enough to bring out cups of ice water for us while we waited in the blazing heat.

An important note: don’t go straight to the Smithsonian or any other museum after Georgetown Cupcakes if you plan to buy more than you can eat. You can’t take food in, which was a fascinating discovery for us that resulted in me eating a total of four cupcakes in the span of a couple hours, and the tragic loss to a trashcan of several more.

Still, it was yummy. There’s no denying that.georgetown cupcakes photo 3

    Have you tried cupcakes from Charm City Cupcakes? I’ve heard great things about them!

  2. The trick to visiting Georgetown Cupcakes is to go right when it opens. Not only is the line much shorter but they also have a new type of free cupcake everyday. Ask and you will receive
