If you were anywhere around Newbury Street this weekend, you may have noticed the massive line outside the brand new Georgetown Cupcake store. The team of sisters and co-founders star in their own TV show, DC Cupcakes, and were in the store all weekend to greet fans and take pictures. This is their second foray outside of the DC metro area (the first opened in NYC's SoHo earlier this year), and so far the stores are a smashing success. On Saturday some people waited over an hour for a cupcake.

It's a fun and unique retail experience with loud music and a modern feminine decor of white and pink, they even have a lime green jeweled kitchen aid on display behind the counter which goes perfectly with the girly theme.

The first thing you see when you walk in is a massive display of all the cupcake flavors and girls who work there explaining each one. I simply went to check the place out, not fully committed to buying one, but before I knew it I was ordering a variety pack of six different cupcakes; it was impossible to resist.

The strawberry cupcake (made with classic madagascar bourbon vanilla cupcake baked with fresh strawberries and topped with a fresh strawberry frosting and a fondant heart) was a Sunday special and my personal favorite. The frosting had chunks of strawberries and the cake part was light and moist.

Usually I'm not a huge fan of red velvet, but tried it since it's their signature flavor and I must say that I was impressed. Some of the chocolate cupcakes are a little too heavy for my taste, but there are definitely enough options to please every type of sweet tooth.

Welcome to Boston, Georgetown Cupcakes! Has anyone had a chance to try one yet?
