The Cupcake Frenzy

Cupcake boutiques are very de rigueur. And the craze has truly arrived here in Washington, D.C. I finally got the opportunity to try Georgetown Cupcake, which has created quite a buzz among Washingtonians with a sweet tooth. GC is located on a (normally) quiet side street of Georgetown. Quick disclosure: I'm not a cupcake fiend or anything — I would choose a homemade fruit pie or cobbler over almost any kind of cake or cupcake.

Having said that, GC's cupcakes were very good. I tried the Key Lime cupcake. Both the frosting and cake part were excellent. A friend raved about the Red Velvet cupcake. Beware: Lines can stretch a block down the street on weekends so to avoid waiting, consider dropping by there on a weeknight. Here is the Wash Post's review of GC.
