Georgetown Cupcake.

A welcome sight after blocks of frigidness. Why must you people live in this misery?

Clearly, Megan and I have been jetting over to the train and 9 miles into D.C. whenever we get the chance. Coupla hours break? Great. To do reports or celebrate life? CELEBRATE LIFE!
Yesterday's mission:
Georgetown. And our sweet sisters at Alpha Pi chapter.
And the famed Georgetown Cupcake.

Good thing I don't have a macnificently abnormally large sweet tooth or anything... This was better than my usual Sour Patch Kids.

Heard of it? Yeah. We had too. And overrated/hyped/touristy/long line or not, if a shop has it's own show on TLC, you go and you enjoy every minute of that gorgeous, surprisingly-well-priced-at-$2.45-a-cupcake cupcake.

Today, Megan learned that all good things must come to an end.

Now, they've given out their Chocolate Ganache Cupcake recipe, but I'm a red velvet girl. A red velvet girl who's pouting because they won't reveal their red velvet recipe. But I did find the icing recipe they top those puppies with (Puppies/icing? Is that a gross euphamism? Whatever.), and it's going live here:

Georgetown Cupcake Red Velvet Cupcake Icing
(because here's a good recipe for the cupcakes to top with icing.)

+ 4 tbs. unsalted butter, room temperature
+ 4 c. confectioners' sugar, sifted
+ 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
+ 6 oz. cream cheese, room temperature

Mix all ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; beat until well combined.

Aight. Somebody get this LC near a kitchen!

p.s. Thank you, Alpha Pi girls, for letting us snoop around your beautiful townhouse! Y'all are just too cute and we loved our campus tour. See ya at District Leadership Conference!

Megan and I take any opportunity possible to explore college campuses. I love college...


  1. Love, love!
    Thank you for the recipes.
    Hope all is well with you.

  2. I LOVE Georgetown Cupcake.. Someone sent us some as a gift and you better believe those babies were g-o-n-e in a blink.
    AKA I'm really jealous.

  3. I love reading your blog and I love Georgetown Cupcake! :) I hope you are enjoying DC as much as I enjoy living here.

  4. How fun that you got to go there! I love red velvet, too. I think I'd be in trouble if I lived anywhere in the vicinity of Georgetown Cupcake!

  5. Glad you had fun visiting!

    Also, I swear Alpha Pi's up-to-date!: http://info.theginsystem.com/websites/ADPI_GW/

    See you soon!
