I have always been a big fan of the TLC show, "D.C. Cupcakes". And ever since I saw the very first episode I'd been dying to go try it out myself. So, one weekend, I drove down to Bethesda, Maryland to try it out for myself. I had wanted to go to the original location in Georgetown, but a friend told me the lines were too long there. Once there, I picked out the two flavors that sounded the most appetizing to me: Red Velvet, and Cookies N' Cream. Both were absolutely amazing. The cake was the perfect mixture of dry and moist, I couldn't taste any chemicals whatsoever in the heavenly cream cheese frosting, and most importantly the flavoring was PERFECT. You haven't had a cupcake until you've tried a Georgetown Cupcake.
