Although I am obsessed with Seattle and New York, there is one place that is a close second- Washington D.C. Before I realized my passion for the culinary industry, I fully planned on becoming a lawyer and my dream law school was always Georgetown University. Besides the amazing university and location, I would move for one other sole reason- GEORGETOWN CUPCAKE! If any of you watch TLC then you are familiar with the show DC Cupcakes. It follows two sisters, Katherine and Sophie, who worked corporate jobs before deciding to open up Georgetown Cupcake. All their recipes are inspired by their grandma, and if you've ever watched, you know how much they love their Mom! Katherine and Sophie are now the authors of two best-selling cookbooks and have locations in six different states! They also ship nationwide, which is how I got to personally try these delicious cupcakes (that come in over 100 different flavors!).
Now that October has begun, I spend many nights drooling over the amazing seasonal flavors they offer. Below are just some seasonal flavors and assortments offered for the month of October.
One of my favorite things about Georgetown Cupcake is their prices. Although $32 dollars for a dozen may seem a little high, if you do the math its around $2.70 per cupcake. In the cupcake world, this price is very affordable. If you, like me, are not lucky enough to have a location near you, the ordering system on their website is very simple to use. The most expensive part of ordering any food product online is normally the shipping, but to ship a dozen cupcakes to Florida, its only $20. Again if you are unfamiliar with pricing, this is very cheap as most places are upwards of $40. I personally got to try the Vanilla Birthday and Cookies and Cream. My favorite part is the rich, creamy buttercream frosting (and of course the adorable sprinkles). But, they are best known for their award-winning Red Velvet Cupcake.
If you live in the area, I highly suggest following them on social media, because just this morning (and most days), they tweet stuff like this- Today's FREE (not-on-menu) flavor is #DCCupcakes VANILLA SUNSHINE! Order it by name & it's FREE! 100/location, 1/customer! Enjoy! Who doesn't love free stuff! Also follow them on Instagram if you love waking up to pictures of their delicious cupcakes (like me). Below are some pictures of their upcoming seasonal flavors for November and December! Enjoy and don't forget to order yourself a dozen (or two)!
