As I mentioned yesterday, as part of my walk along Newbury Street I stopped at the new Georgetown Cupcake store per a friend’s recommendation. While their signature cupcake is Red Velvet (which is not at the top of my list of favorite cupcakes) I opted for two flavors that were more of a favorite. I got a chocolate hazelnut and chocolate3.
I have to say, while cupcakes are good, they are not my favorite form of chocolate or sugar. That said, these were pretty good cupcakes. The two I got both had ganache on top rather than frosting (since ganache is way better than any chocolate frosting I’ve had) and that was a good choice. The ganache was really good and added a lot of moisture and gooeyness to the cupcakes. The ganach makes the cupcakes not quite as picturesque as the kinds with frosting, but nonetheless I felt compelled to photograph them!
One thing about the Georgetown Cupcake store, at least the Newbury Street location, is that it has very little seating. I guess a lot of people get cupcakes to go, but if you did want to make a date out of it you should consider going somewhere else to eat. It could also get crowded really easily as the setup for the line and waiting area is a little bit funky. I’m not sure if other stores are this way, but it was a little difficult to see if there was a line to buy or if people were just waiting to get their cupcakes. The inside of the store is really cute and has a very clean style. Also, the pink is actually very bright and happy which makes the store seem fresh and clean.
