After trying Georgetown Cupcake cupcakes at a NYC Bar Association event, I wanted more. So I headed to their NYC location in Soho. A cupcake tasting without red velvet would be insane. So I got red velvet, chocolate and vanilla (everyone likes one or the other), white chocolate raspberry (yummy combo) and lavender earl gray teacake (something different). Before eating, I thought I would like red velvet best and lavender earl grey least.
First, I tried white chocolate raspberry.
Verdict: A little too moist. The white chocolate chips were on the bottom, so I’m guessing they weren’t floured before being put into the batter.
Second, the chocolate and vanilla.
Verdict: A coffee-flavored chocolate.
Third, red velvet.
Verdict: A little on the sweet side.
Fourth, lavender earl gray teacake.
Verdict: Light flavor, not too sweet, very pleasant. The surprising favorite of the group. I still think the key lime and salted caramel are my favorites from this cupcake shop. (In case you’re wondering, I had some help sampling these cupcakes. I’m a foodie, but even I can’t eat four cupcakes at once!) To try your own taste test, visit their site.
