Georgetown Cupcake

111 Mercer Street (between Spring and Prince) New York, NY 10012
(212) 431-4504

Finally, we found a cupcake place that is totally worth it to make a trip to Soho besides the shopping, of course. We were strolling in the city the other day and came across one of the best cupcake shop so far. Me and my hubby are huge fans of cupcakes and have tried almost every cupcake shop available in NYC. This came as a pleasant surprize. It has several locations besides Soho like Georgetown, Boston and Maryland.

When we arrived at the store, there was a long line. As it turns out, all cupcakes are made on  location towards the back of the store. The interior of the shop was modern and uplifting. There was so much choice that it got a little confusing as to which one to pick and which one to leave to try the next time.

There was the Valrhona chocolate cupcake with a thin layer of Callebaut chocolate ganache icing topped with a fondant flower. This one was my son's choice as his favorite color is blue and this cupcake had a blue flower on top.

Then there was the Georgetown Cupcake's signature cupcake — the classic red velvet cupcake with a vanilla cream cheese frosting topped with a red fondant heart.

Another chocolate variety that caught my eye was the Valrhona chocolate cupcake with a whipped Callebaut chocolate frosting topped also with a orange fondant flower.

There other flavors are a bit not common like Lavender Earl Grey Tea cake. This was a vanilla cupcake with lavender and earl grey tea, topped with a lavender infused buttercream frosting, a fondant flower, and a sprinkle of lavender sugar. The sweetness was just perfect and not overwhelming at all. The lavender frosting was tasty too.

What goes with a good cupcake, a good cup of coffee. There is also an extensive menu of coffees, lattes, cappucchinos and teas to go with these delectable desserts.
