Georgetown Cupcake, Boston

The DC based cupcake chain opened it's only Boston location on Newbury Street, 3 years ago. I never made an effort to get there before, but my friend Amy was picking out new glasses at Warby Parker, which happens to be in the same building.

The displays are beautiful and the cupcakes were attractively presented in a takeout box. We tried 3 cupcakes: Cherry Blossom, salted caramel and chocolate coconut. The cupcakes were moist enough, but the flavors were weak; the salted caramel was not salted enough and the coconut was too sweet. The cherry was the best of the bunch, but none were worth the $3 price tag.
