A New Kind of Tasting by Raz


The following was written by PoP contributor Raz

Wine tasting—been there, beer tasting—done that, how about a cupcake tasting? My friend had this brilliant idea a few weeks ago and the event materialized Wednesday night.

We gathered at a friend’s house and everyone brought cupcakes from a bakery or made their own.
The line-up included:

  • Georgetown Cupcake
  • Baked and Wired
  • Red Velvet
  • Sticky Fingers
  • Cold Stone Creamery
  • Hello Cupcake
  • Homemade Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cupcakes
  • Open City
  • CakeLove

Most people brought a variety of 3-6 cupcakes from each place. We all cut the cupcakes into bite-size pieces and discussed fluffiness, cake and frosting style, flavor, etc.
The crowd favorites were Georgetown Cupcake and Baked and Wired.

This was a fun way to see if all these new cupcake places are worth the hype, and spend some time with friends.

What’s your favorite cupcake spot?
