dc cupcake wars revisited: georgetown cupcake’s lava fudge

Note: this is a multi-part series in response to the Washington Post Cupcake Wars last fall, which was clearly a farce.

The breakdown, cake: Same as the cake in the chocolate ganache cupcake, it had that box-mix flavor and texture.

The breakdown, icing: A cream cheese icing, decently proportioned. Flavor was very sweet, could’ve used a bit of tartness.

The breakdown, lava filling: The Achilles’ heel of this cupcake. I was all psyched for an ooey, gooey chocolate center. Instead, I get something that reminds me of the flavor, consistency and aftertaste of Hershey’s syrup. It just doesn’t make any sense, given all the high-quality ingredients Georgetown Cupcake touts on its website. To borrow a quote from In Living Color, “Hated it!”
