Hello vs. Georgetown Cupcake

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Since the yuppie cupcake movement began (around 2007)
I've been on a quest.
Find the perfect sugary morsel and declare that one the winner. My ambition has taken me from the charming use-to-be-my-salon
cupcakery in Holladay, UT (where apple spice had me hooked) to the sun drenched beaches of L.A., where I believe the movement started. Recently, I've ventured on a tour-de-sugar in the D.C./NOVA area.

Truth be told, I don't love cupcakes.

I do however appreciate the hunt. Ridiculous prices ($3+ ea.) and outrageous calories (500 ea.) keep me at bay. Well, almost.

So far the two finalists are: this vs. this. Option one has a nice spot for people watching and the shop is oh-so-metro accessible. The peanut butter on chocolate cake (trust me on this one) is divinely decadent. Option two, less accessible and no spot to indulge. But Hel-lo lemon berry! Shocking pink adorns the moist lemoney cake, while its chewy accessory simply melts away those midweek blues.
