Cupcakes with cupcakes
I had an escape this past weekend. Three friends and I met in Washington, DC for a girls' weekend replete with girls only activities: shopping, wining (not the aural kind), dining, a play, a funky hotel and yes, cupcakes. We spent an entire day milling about the shops in Georgetown when we happened upon Georgetown Cupcakes, a shop entirely dedicated to the handheld treat.
We knew we were on to something by the size of the line to get in the door. The line was continuously 30 people deep all day. Every time we passed by, it was that way. So, what else to do but wait our 45 minutes to see what the fuss was about? We passed the time by taking pictures... , speculating the flavors of the day and hoping there wasn't a bouncer at the front of the line allowing only those deemed worthy to enter the cupcake haven. We hoped we'd make the cut.
As we entered there was no bouncer, only the heady smell of cream cheese icing. Our orders were quickly filled and we were pushed out the door by the 30+ patrons behind us. There were moments, I feared being trampled. But we survived and found a quiet spot to enjoy our cupcakes. The treats were delicious and the icing the best I have ever tasted.
Thanks girls for a truly fun weekend. Let's do it again soon!
