The rebirth and revolution of the cupcake lives on. Cupcakes were once a small, delicious, delight shared at children's parties and annual school bake offs. In recent years, the cupcake has revolutionized the once basic, homemade, treat.
Individuals and groups have taken this revolution by storm and birthing grandma's recipe to an explosive nationwide phenomena. This is the short story behind Georgetown Cupcake (DC Cupcake from TLC).
Sisters Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne are the co-founders of Georgetown Cupcake, stars of the hit series DC Cupcakes on TLC, and best-selling authors of The Cupcake Diaries. Their new book, Sweet Celebrations will be released in October 2012.description via Georgetown Cupcake
During the summer, I visited my sister in DC. Of course, DC has gone through a huge gentrification and the city is now attractive and very cosmopolitan. With that and the influence of pop culture, I was motived to see and taste the buzz surrounding Georgetown Cupcake.
I visited the location that is situated in the beautiful Bethesda Row. Bethesda is a quaint yet posh city in Maryland just over the DC line.
The shop is just the cutest and receives a lot of foot traffic because of its location. On this evening, my sister and I couldn't decide on flavors, so we went with the familiar: Red Velvet and Cookies 'n Cream.
The cupcakes are exceptionally rich. I didn't expect the Cookies 'n Cream to have such a strong flavor. It was almost pungent. I don't want to say that in absolutes because I normally try things twice before making a final decision. I then had a taste of my sister's Red Velvet Cupcake and it was marvelous. The flavor was rich but not as strong as the Cookies 'n Cream.
Taste Overall: B-
I'm going to try them again when I come back to the states to get a final review. (or maybe I'm greedy - who knows)
Have you ever tried Georgetown Cupcakes?
