Pie V Cake’s tips for avoiding the ridiculous lines at Georgetown Cupcake

This was the scene outside Georgetown Cucpake’s M Street location this morning at 11:15 AM.

In other words, TLC’s DC Cupcakes has dashed my hopes of ever getting another free Facebook cupcake on weekend mornings. It used to be, pre-DC Cupcakes, you could show up near opening time on weekends and sail through the line within 10 minutes. With a free cupcake, no less. Those days are gone, now that every tourist and their mom wants a cupcake. <<{{Gnashing of teeth.}}>>

Here are our tips for getting your cupcake on:

  • Order ahead. You can place your order the day before, then not have to wait in line to pick it up. Cut in front of the sugar-starved mobs at your own risk.
  • Walk a few blocks to Baked & Wired, where the cupcakes are bigger (and some say better), anyway.
  • Jump on the blue Georgetown Metro Connection bus to Dupont Circle’s Hello Cupcake. Especially if their Gianduja is on the menu that day.

    Thanks for the tips – I’m a fan of other cupcake stores – Baked & Wired, Hello Cupcake, Red Velvet, etc.

    Another tip, go to the Bethesda Georgetown Cupcake location, rumor has it that it’s quite quiet over there.

    BTW – what are your thoughts on the tv show, “DC Cupcakes?”
