PeanutPimpMama was born in 2012 and so was her short lived cupcake business. The cupcake trend was somewhere mid-boom and it seemed like a good idea at the time. In reality I probably liked eating them and feeding people as they seem to evoke a myriad of feelings. For some it was nostalgia, for others it was comfort, then there were the few that seem to experience pure rage. Never trust the latter…A person who dislikes a cupcake is no friend of mine!
Our last day in D.C. was grey. We woke up to rain and an all-inclusive breakfast buffet at The Ritz that was hard to turn down. What else does one do in a city if you’ve already eaten? In all of our adventures I felt like we were missing the “old town” perspective. So with our stomachs full of the Ritz’s pancakes and eggs we decided to drive into Georgetown to get a taste of the “old-city”. What we got? Confusion. I didn’t know what to do with this area that was heavily trodden by mums and uni-kids decked out in lulu gear. It somehow felt lost and neither one of us were motivated to shop in the rain. The coolest part may have been driving through the residential areas and looking at the row-home architecture unique to D.C..
Suddenly we passed Georgetown Cupcake on 33rd and Main. Then we passed it again and again and again until we finally decided that was how we would spend our last moments in D.C.. (cupcake-ing) No regrets!
A cupcake is certainly better than road rage. We parked my car and came in to gawk at their decadent flavors. Honestly I’m a little tired of the humdrum and nothing particularly screamed “innovation” on their list. They get the job done with peanut butter, chocolate blah-bity-blah (in a couple forms), red velvet etc. etc…. so on and so on. Their most “edgy” flavor might be the lavender earl grey. I noticed they promote their weekly specials and seasonal flavors to keep it fresh. There wasn’t really anything “cray” going on decorative-wise.
They’re doing something right because the place was packed and continued to be more so as we enjoyed our cupcakes in the seating area.
I couldn’t help but notice their be-dazzled Kitchen-Aid. I was “totes-jello”.
Imagine all those super busy worker-bees mixing the batter for all those cupcakes with one be-dazzled mixer?
Georgetown operates deli-style with a numbered ticket system. When you’re number is called out you collect your cupcakes in a perky pink box.
My roommate and I shared some cupcakes as we sipped our lattes and watched the passersby in the never ending drizzle. It was impossible to finish them all in one-go, so we packed up and hit the road. I’m not gonna lie… I definitely polished another one off on the way.
So much for finding my politician-hubby that weekend! Maybe next time. wink*
