2013 BEST Cupcake

Georgetown Cupcake

In this, the age of the bacon-topped cupcake, it’s nice to know that a simple vanilla confection can still be done right. At Georgetown’s first Boston outpost, the Madagascar-bourbon-vanilla cake is delicate and moist, and the cream cheese frosting is fluffy and rich. If you do have a craving for something a touch more exotic, the specialty cupcakes (fresh strawberry, Earl Grey-lavender) are praise-the-heavens delicious, too.

    i wish Brown Betty in Philadelphia would show up in this city. Georgetown Cupcakes, taste good for sure, but BEST OF BOSTON? They are a icing house. The cake is not that good. It’s tasty, you enjoy it, but the density is no better than a hostess cupcake.
