dc cupcake wars revisited: georgetown cupcake’s white chocolate raspberry

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: This was a seasonal flavor that’s already been replaced. Pity, because this cake was one of the better ones from Georgetown Cupcake that I’ve tried. It was dense and spongy, punctuated with bits of raspberry that added some tang. The texture reminded me of some vegan cupcakes I’ve tried. And no, that was not an insult.

The breakdown, icing: Couldn’t taste the white chocolate in this. It was a sweet cream cheese icing, good but pretty standard.
