One of my must-eat food in New York is cupcakes. On my last trip, I had 18 cupcakes in a week – that’s how obsessed I am with it. On this trip, however, I was more interested in trying out the non-NYC native bakeries: LA’s Sprinkles Cupcakes and Washington DC’s Georgetown Cupcakes. After trying three in 2 days, I conclude the following: Georgetown > Sprinkles > Magnolia Bakery.
Georgetown won hands down for its fluffy frosting and decent-sized cupcakes. Sprinkles’ cakes were just huge! While good – I got sick of it quickly plus it didn’t have a frosting that could trump Georgetown.

After watching endless episodes of the TV show, DC Cupcakes, I have been dreaming about Georgetown for more than a year. It was so worth the wait.
Got the Halloween Ghost special which was Double Chocolate. FANTASTIC! I could eat that rich fudgy and airy frosting alone.
A couple of days later, I got some in Boston for a friend – she loved it too!
New York, you hold the best cupcakes!
